Lovely! What seemed just a dark blob in the chicklet now is a much lighter, interesting limestone feature. Tiny images have been a gripe of mine also, and I've enjoyed the occasional links to larger ones. Any chance of a sizable one of "Heavy Metal" to see what it really looks like - and perhaps clear the air a bit?
Whoa!! My wish fulfilled instantly as I ran across Kevin's answer to Dreed's "click-through" question, with a link to his blog: http://kevinraber.com/
Here I find a nice image of "Heavy Metal", that expands to a width of about 30" - and, what, 45" height! A very impressive image, reminiscent of the Deco era photographs and stylized paintings with their massive cylindrical forms, heroic men and women. I grew up with this aesthetic, as my mother was an artist and designer in NYC in the early to mid 30's - thanks to Roosevelt's WPA which put so many artists, photographers, writers, musicians, architects, engineers to work, along with the builders, to create so much that we can still enjoy today.
To my admittedly old eyes and a well-calibrated monitor for printing, Kevin,s image is not at all "overprocessed", but captures to power and texture of the simple forms, and their fasteners, as well as their slow degradation over time.
