Bernd and Hilla Becher inspired photos

Bernd and Hilla Becher are a husband and wife team known for their grids of black and white photographs of industrial sites.   Below are some photos which have been inspired by some of their photos.  With these photos i tried to take them on an overcaste day, however the second photo was taken on quite a sunny day hence the shadows.  I also tried to take the photos straight on, trying to capture as much of the structure as possible.  In post production i converted to black and white and adjusted the contrast and exposure to give the photos a flat appearance.

  1. I can see the Becher influence in these photos Sepa. Can you comment on what techniques you have used to emulate their style?
