Default My best shot to date?!

Man, I took this today and everything about it is satisfying to me.... I really can't find anything bad about it --- if you can please let me know -- but I am proud of this one



My hometown was a massive mining town in the early 50's, 60's here in Canada, and that has long since all shutdown - this is some of the machine remains.

Is that a bird?

The only thing thats throwing me off is the horizon and the thing in the air. Other than that it is a great shot. I love the blue/yellow/brown/white.

Very nice shot, but I agree that the horizon should be leveled.
