Les raffineries de pétrole de Montréal-Est, quoique d'une laideur absolue le jour, dévoilent des airs de science-fiction une fois la nuit tombée.

Une lumière industrielle assez saisissante ! Bien vu !

Oh, the long exposure provided such interesting effects in the rising vapor. Great shot...

@Julie McLeod: Thank you Julie. The interesting thing with those long exposure with moving thinkgs is you never know what you're gonna get (reminds me of Forest Gump).
Vincent, je partage entièrement ton point de vue ! Belle photo de nuit.

@Florence: C'est fou à quel point la nuit peut transformer du tout au tout. Merci, Florence.
Very nice. I love these industrial night shots.

@Twelvebit: Night can turn an ugly industrial site into a piece of art, somehow! Thanks for stopping by.
Outstanding! Difficult to make industrial look as beautiful as you made this shot. The light makes for remarkable colors. Great capture.

@Daily Phototherapy: Thank you. Actually, those oil rig are lit with a strong orange cast lights (which is surprisingly fun to watch with your naked eye, but looks wrong in a picture). I decided to realign colours with Photoshop RAW converter, using the lights themselves as a white balance target. It just looks better this way. Thanks for your comment.
C'est en effet superbe (la nuit). Très belle photo à vitesse lente.

@Jean-Benoît Maréchal: Merci Jean-Benoît.
Both the colour and the long exposure with the smoke make this a compelling image rather than the ugliness we normally associate with factories/refineries.

@Jim (365,000 words): That's right, the night turns an ungly place into a sci-fi like scene! Thanks for stopping by, Jim!
You are a master at catching interesting light. This one is superb!

@Ken McCoy: Thank you Ken, this is one great compliment, but (without false modesty) I only capture what's there, nothing more. I guess my only merit is to go out there at night. For this particular shot, I realigned the colours because those industrial light are orange in fact. Eventhough it's very nice to the naked eye, it looks wrong in a picture. Thanks RAW for its ability to redo white balance in a single click! Anyhow, I much appreciate your comment, again thank you.
Lovely...i like the dance of the smoke...
