The old freezing works at Patea from across the river.
(For the non kiwis out there...freezing works=meat processing plant)
Any hints, tips, constructive criticism or comments are welcome and appreciated.

@jamesy: Thanks Jamesy
Cool photo Marg.
Its a sad sort of a place I reckon, Patea.

@Rickwnz: Thanks Rick. And yes, I agree - a kind of "passed it's use by date" air or something, which is sad.
Desolation point. The B&W is a nice idea.

@Calusarus: Yes very desolate. Thanks for the comment.
A great place for exploring, I presume. :-)

@MadScientist: Definitely! Unfortunately the building itself is fenced off from explorers.
Beautiful b/w shot. This place looks like a great place for some adventure and photography.

@Kelela: Thank you!
Margie, may I ask how you make your black and whites? At least, now I know you're from the other side of the world (for me!)
I find this one all in gray's rather than black and white. The other one I've just commented covers the whole density spectrum. This one seems to be all in the middle (from light gray to dark gray) You could enhance this trough simple software...

@Chris: Hi Chris, thanks for your comments on my blog today. Yes I can see why you are asking - comparing this one to the "washed up" post - this does look a little washed out. I use Photoshop very inexpertly. My technique (?) is a kind of stumble-fumble-struggle thing. Sometimes I hit paydirt ("washed up") and sometimes I think I have (this one). It's all practice and experimenting I guess. If only I could remember what I did to this one. :)
Thank you for your honest comments. It's only with constructive criticism that we are challenged and learn.
Margy I LURV this pic - the trees on the hill, the texture in the posts up the front of the pic. Love it
