    Great shot! It's also refreshing to see a b&w Night shot. Only thing I'm curious about is that the rig is tilted to the left. That's a bit more distortion than what I see on my 12/2. Kudos!

    Thanks. Definitely some distortion there, I played around in lightroom using the generator housing on the center-left as a horizon marker, and it only changed the angle .08 of a degree. The rig isn't always set up completely vertical, but this one is very close.

    Great power and atmosphere in this B&W shot, congrats on the capture.
  10. Down here in Texas I noticed many of the rigs lean towards the side of the roustabouts platform. Seems to be to give the drill pipe clearance away from the base of the derrick.
