Robert - Definitely the alternative - the color seems a bit off - it almost
has the look of a 40 year old print - but that may be my monitor or the
net...But it is a very nice winter shot, an interesting alternative to what
would usually be a B&W shot.

Your main shot is too confusing for my taste - it's not so much the crane,
as it is that I'm not sure what I'm looking at in terms of that framework
over everything, the crane, the burned church. I think this is one of those
shots that 'thinks' better to the photographer than it ends up looking when

through the open gate.  I went in as far as I dared.  There was actually
four cranes working on it.  To of the smaller ones like shown and a huge
crane lifting the superstructure.  I am hoping to get more in my colour

I think the sky is what makes the picture.  That is why I tried to get more
of it.  I was in the ditch at the side of the highway.  If you went up any
higher, you lost the sky.
