I played around with this image coming up with different contrasts between the foreground industrial area on the North Shore and the distant Vancouver skyline, desaturating and then fading the effect to various degrees but then I went back to the original image with only a slight cropping. Originally there was use of a Cokin filter to highlight the coloring of the lumber stacked in the foreground which in turn, for me, creates the effect of the skyline being ghostlike in quality. I just liked the view because it shows one of the products that helped to create the Vancouver skyline over the years.

Well there's plainly not much timber in the modern day Vancouver skyline but I take your point that timber provided the wealth to create the city.
I get the feeling that this some short time in the future when all industry is banished to the outskirts in fog and poor weather where it and it workers look enviously towards the comforts of the city.
A very nice image Jan - I would prefer for the central lamp post to be cloned out as it spoils an otherwise good composition.

Hello Jan
Nice reall industrial image,with good dept due to the containers in front.
The debris laying around is not a good adverticement for the City.
Still wonder why you dont upload your pictures in a larger format, like 1200 pixels.
The frame around is welldone.
Regards from Jan

Being retired from the forest products industry, I know what a large role it played in the development of so many areas of North America, including Vancouver. I recall all the Cokin filter work you did in the past and it certainly works on this image. Wish you were doing it all over again so we could see a larger view.

Jan, Hi:

Interesting Industrial Daily Life image of an earlier Vancouver. Very Historical.

Lots of feeling and a sense of old time created by your post process treatments here. The overall rust color and the murky city skyline work quite well together to create the moodiness of this well done image.

Your perspective and composition is excellent Jan. For me there's just a little too much red in the picture. Other than that, I think it's well done.
