An Inconvenient Truth (movie) inspired me to take this photo. I wasn't sure if photojournalism was the best place to post, but it seemed relative enough to post here.

Believe it or not, this is Huntington Beach. I found housing community on a hill approaching Costa Mesa. Typically such communities have gated access, but I got lucky here. The thick black lines you see in the photo are from a fence I shot through. My goal here was to block the sun so it wouldn't blow out the photo, but still allow me to capture the hazy sunset.

I didn't do much PP...if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share and give feedback (positive or negative). Thanks for looking!

Nice pic JD! I wouldn't have recognized this as costal California until you said so. But then California has always been right upfront about their energy usage. I love to shoot the oil-fired power plant in Carlsbad and the nuke at San Onofre.

Excellent shot. The composition is dead-on and the color adds an ominous feeling to the photo. Really, really nice.

In a nutshell, I think this was an interesting image that was utterly ruined by the horizontal and two vertical black blobs. Had this been a photo of historic significance, I'd save it, but as it is, in my opinion, it's not worth keeping.
