    Industrial/factory photos - opinion wanted

    about these photos I took a couple of days ago, please ?
    Thank you.
    This is an old factory where they used to manufacture cork, closed and abandoned many tears ago.
    I was in fact having fun with my full frame camera with the 16-35 lens with my new Canon 5D.

    I like #3 and #6 the rest seem a bit washed out...was it a bright day?
    HDR would have made these really pop!

    rrivas,

    I have to say that these shots don't look particularly washed out on my monitor, considering the difficulty of the location?

    What does everyone else think?

    As for the location, it is so typical of many abandoned industrial locations and as well as being the back scene for fashion/other types of photography, I love to get in close in such locations, the 'nuts and bolts' of rusting machinery can create some superb effects. Could spend a few hours there......(trouble often is getting access in this country due to 'Health & Safety' considerations)

    I could even say: It is a very good place to shoot a bride or a wedding !
    Using flash could be a wonderfull place with very nice pictures.

    Thank you for the comment.
    I will try to make some shots with other lens but the 16-35 on the 5D.
    Details, shallow DoF ... etc.
