Very nice thematic, strong chopping of course, only thing standing out is the discharge pipe, something feels off about it, I just can't pinpoint what. Maybe it would be better without stuff coming out of it... hard to say. But def makes my voting cut.

What Bill said. Is it a perspective issue? The pipe appears to run uphill. Love the colors and resulting mood.

This is really cool! I have to agree with Rey! You should be able to see the top of the stacks! They appear to be bending away in this view. Great image altogether! =0)

no one seems to be noticing that the perspective on the stone hive is all wrong
jasper jasper
i took some liberties with perspective on this so I could get my hive shape right. the pipe was a last second addition but I felt it supported the message. would lower the horizon to help grand perspective if I had it to do over. still fun to come back!
jasper jasper
i updated the pipe with some much needed perspective and added the link which inspired this post.
vunt van pumununt vunt van pumununt
much better! and that link you posted: shocking. :(
jasper jasper
thanks for the input vokaris! you were right on the money. :)
TheShaman TheShaman
those pictures are nasty, the update isnt
ReyRey ReyRey
I still think the perspective is off. You should be able to see into those smoke stacks. ....It's still my fav.
vokaris vokaris
Rey˛: I tend to disagree. You would only see the top of the smoke stack if it were below the horizon. Perhaps the top levels of the hive should look flatter for a more correct perspective. link: [img]

Vokaris: Instructive GIF. What software did you use to make it?
Tawiskaro Tawiskaro
Jasper: Thanks for the link. Disturbing stuff. Be careful with links on the site, though. I inadvertantly clicked one and ended up with an explosion of IE instances. It was like getting Rick Rolled.

IMPO this was one of the best of the contest. Great job jasper. One of several that easily could have made top 3.
