I happen to live less than an hour from one of the biggest astronomical radio observatories in the world, the VLA or Very Large Array. Once in a while I get the urge to drive out there to take some photos and this is one of them.

Nice shot. Great dynamic range. I like the little dish way far away in the background. This looks like the VLA, but I haven't been there in a long time.

Nice depth with the two dishes. Looks like it's right out of a NASA press release. Except better than they'd do it.

Well taken.

The VLA is a miraculous place. I like the saturation work you did on the photo. Maybe if the dish was turned more it would be better. I like how you framed the second one in the background. The dish in the foreground, though, is a lttle too dark, and thust loses a little of its edge as the focus of the photo.

Certainly meets the challenge. I would like to see more of the sky (it looks beautiful) on the right, and maybe less of the ground.
