#457 Power winners
Posted By: SpecialK, 05-13-2019, 05:37 PM

jatrax: Beautiful shot of natural power (geology) overlaid with the silhouette of humanity, with a lunar bonus.

eva: I can feel the heat.

atupdate: A fine example of a 2-HP plow.

schnitzer79: Love the unusual presentation.

Vaskebjorn: This must have been taken at the equator - I had to turn my head sideways.

sealonsf: Thanks for the view I have never experienced.

RGlasel: Steam indeed has a lot of BTUs. A pleasant scenic journey.

mattb123: Dams hold an incredible amount of water pressure.

aaacb: The power of persuasion, perhaps.

Merv-O: I've been to Hoover dam many times but never got this unusual view.

charliezap: A lovely shot of an intriguing subject. Water weighs about 64 lbs/cuft, so you can do the math :-)

BigDave: A photo is worth 1,000 words, though I want to hear more about this guy's efforts.

mingdie: I'm told good tools make the work easier. I'd still be sore in the morning.

noelcmn: Nice rustic feel to modern power-generation.

ramseybuckeye: That is obviously a very beautiful sky.

jacamar: Very impressive example of the powerful pecking-order in nature.

clking61: Love the bands of color and turbine blur.

Hattifnatt: Love the ominous clouds offset by the abstract green light.

I enjoyed them all and it was not an easy choice for the top three - I waffled a couple times. But, I'm calling @jatrax Mt Hood the winner. Love the light on the mountain, blue sky, unmistakable sign of power, and the moon.

2nd and 3rd go to @clking61 for the beautiful colors, and @Hattifnatt for the lightning.

Quite agree,great challenge,and that could not have been an easy judging exercise. Thanks to our host and judge for the challenge and judging exercise, attracting some powerful inspiring images. Congrats Jatrax, stunning juxtaposed image. Worthy winner. And extended to clking61 and Hattifnat both of which I thought were in with a chance. Stunning Images,
