A very effective composition. Attention is led into the background through geometry. It is a unique image, and very well done.

I also noticed that this control room is being sold on Daz 3D.

I just noticed that this control room is used as a set in the movie Spy.

Ballroom meets control room and sweet music arises. Your photos never fail to take my imagination on a journey.

What an amazing skylight! I agree with goddessandmcmanus about never guessing something like this would be in a power plant. I suppose it says a lot about the art deco period of time. Stylistically very nice but huge separation between the rich and the poor. An amazing photograph, I can't think of anything to offer as critisism.

Thank you for sharing this with us. I would have never guessed that such a room would have been designed for a power plant.

If I were ever to become ridiculously rich, I wouldn't build or buy a mansion... I would live in a place like this gradually renovating it as I see fit.  *deep sigh*  What a lovely dream.

Thanks SO much MH for taking and sharing this ENTHRALLING image, my week has been unpleasant but this image is my silver lining. :D
