Nice picture. I like the way the windows pick up the yellow/gold of the sky. HDR?

Holy cow I need the address to this factory cause I need to shoot in it! Great capture and this place gives me so many ideas I can't handle it! Such atmosphere... why can't that be like across the street from my house!

Yes, the colors are so brilliant throughout the pic that I was going to ask the same HDR question!

Very interesting image. I like it! I used to live in Thunder Bay - where exactly is this? Is it the Great Lakes Paper mill? Can you still wander around the docks where the iron ore pellets are loaded? I used to live near there. Thanks for sharing.

That is so cool

I'd love to see it without the forklifts in there. It would be the perfect location for a horror shoot.

Oh, the sky is perfect for the theme

Very nice - Charles Dickens would be proud. I sort of like the fork lifts - they add a bit of irony.

Is this an HDR treatment?

As an ex-Thunder Bay guy I am interested in knowing where that is.

Shoot some more of the city if you can... it has been almost 10 years since I have been there... I would love to see how things have changed.

Is the Sleeping Giant still Sleeping?

Thanks for all the comments guys, I'm actually from southern ontario but have been living in thunder bay for school for a couple years. It definatly has some nice sights. This factory was located down near the north end of town I belive, over the bridge and right down by the water. I'm bad with directions in Thunder Bay so I hope that explains things. The picture is an HDR but created with one RAW file. Here's a picture I took of the sleeping giant last weekend at sunrise, beautiful. Thanks again

Need I add more!? The colour is awsome.

Imagine this shot with a shift lense. Maybe you could make an adjustment using software.
