This is my first critique, so please do take it with a pinch of salt! =)

First off, i absolutely love this photograph. I am a huge fan of black and white, which captures emotions and mood in situations and sceneries. This is something which you have achieved very well. The only things that i personally would've prefered are as follows.

The foto is a bit grainy, especially if you focus your attention on the sky. If you adjust your camera to automatic or even manual where you set ISO 100 (if the weather is clear and you have good light). As you used an analog camera, i am unsure of how to do this and even if it is possible as i'm stuck in digital camera world. Scans tend to be a bit grainy, but i think you got a good copy here.

The second thing is the street to the right. I'm a bit torn. It sort of fits in, and sort of doesn't. either way it definately adds another dimension to the photo.

I'll repeat myself and say that it is a truly Awesome photo, and keep up the good work! :)

Great photo!

It's a shame that there are very few places on QR to get closer photos - lineside photos very rarely convey the same feeling as a low-angle photo near the cylinders would! Otherwise, I think you've done a great job.
