Stormy Rig Derrick by tmz99 Stormy Rig Derrick by tmz99
So yeah, another oil rig/derrick photo. And a HDR at that!
My apologies for posting so many of these - but I guess when you spend more than 1/2 your life out here, there's not that many other subjects to shoot.. :)

The rig is the Hakuryu-5 (Hak-5), working in Burma.

Either way, hope you enjoy - comments appreciated.. :)

It's tone mapping (ie: trying to make a HDR from a single RAW file). Photomatix is the initial software, then run through photoshop.

Spent 15 years on these things, it gets old fast! Retired now and the only thing I miss is the food! LOL

You might want to try some night sky shots from the helo pad, something else to shoot anyway.

Yeah, the food out here isn't too bad, but nothing to write home about. I still have a fair bit of time left on these things before I can afford to retire - the job keeps me coming back to fund all the toys... :)
I want to take more photos of people working, but there's a fine line where I don't want to interrupt people and compromise safety.

Yep its hard given to get shots of the crew working with the enclosed drill floor. Safety is always an issue out there and I agree on not distracting the crew.

I still have a big glob of melted drill pipe / floor / substructure for the land rig we lost on a blowout in Western Louisiana. Flames 200-300 feet high and it melted everything on location including the glass in the windows. So when they say bail, you should already be gone! lol

Take care and blame it on the tool pusher or company man! lol

Very impressive, wonderful leading lines. I was told a sucessful image catches your eye and your eye kind of circles over it without leaving the image. This picture does that.
