I stopped on my way home from work last night to shoot this.
I wish there wasn't a fence in the foreground, but I still like the way this factory looks.

Jink, are you shooting digital? Several of your recent pictures display highlights that remind me of film, with a nice gradual transition to the darker tones. I've gotten that using film plenty of times, but when I shoot digital the transitions always looks much harsher to me. That's a beautiful shot, btw!

We had our first substantial snowfall of the season yesterday.
Today, the neighborhood kids are having a blast with their sleds!

Prepare to be blown away by my comment. The last shot was taken with, none other than, my iPhone! I used an application called "instagram" for that shot. I juggle between digital and analog. If I'm shooting people or minimal photography, I tend to use film, although out of pure laziness sometimes I'll opt for digital. If it's landscape/scenery/wide angle, I shoot digital. A lot of the time I'll edit my digital photos to make them look as if they were taken by a film camera. The process is fairly easy. I use color correction and reduce the contrast. Sometimes I'll even add film grain using plug-ins. Thanks!

Here's the version I took with my film camera: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7164/6...592a7ef0_z.jpg

I've heard of Instagram and I've seen some examples, but your particular picture is much more subtle. Very nice. I've tried making some of my digital images look like film, but with limited results. My current camera (Fuji X10) actually has a surprisingly good black & white film simulation mode (with choice of different colored filters), and even the color film simulation modes are decent, but it still never looks quite like film to my eyes. But your shots actually do!
