Naughton Power Plant - 5

    Newer Older

    Pictures taken on the third day of my trip to Wyoming in August of 2009. All of the pictures for this day were taken either near the Naughton Power Plant, or in Fossil Butte National Monument.

      Hi, I'm the photo editor with National Parks Conservation Association. We’ve been pursuing nice image of Naughton Power Plant to illustrate clean air message on our website. Would you be so kind to allow us to use the image? We will make sure your image is credited. Thanks for considering! Nicole Yin nyin@npca.org www.npca.org

      Hi Nicole,

      I would rather this photo, in particular, not be used in any clean air message.

      The image features some rather extreme contrast, and elements of it are strongly tinted by the sunrise in the background; used incorrectly, it could give the erroneous impression that Naughton's emissions are rife with combustion byproduct. And while I am aware that Naughton is one of the less clean-burning plants in the US, I have also done work at the plant site, including work on its emissions monitoring systems, and so am aware that what by-product it does produce still falls below the threshold where it would be easily visible to the naked eye, or visible as strong colour tones within plant emissions.

      I would allow the use of this image instead: www.flickr.com/photos/kenneth_hynek/3843991367/

      ...which offers a less dramatic, more neutral presentation of the plant site. If the vignetting on that image is too pronounced, I can provided the raw & unedited version of the same image, or a minimally edited version.

      Hi Kenneth,

      Thanks for the clarification, it makes perfect sense to me. We'll use the othe image instead. Just to be clear, should the credit read Kenneth Kully?

      Thanks again!

      Kenneth Kully is my legal name at present, so yes, that would be fine for attribution.

      As regards attribution, I would ask you to both cite my name and link to the image (the link given in my previous comment would suffice).

      Cheers!
