Day 84 – Up on the Hill

28 Jun

So, I have one more barn photo. I thought I was done but I guess I am not, and I liked this shot so I had to share it. I am not going to say I won’t be revisiting the barn thing soon but I promise I am done after this one for a while 🙂

I love the textures in this one and the pops of red from the fencing and of course the fact that it is a barn really toots my horn. I didn’t do too much with this shot besides tweaking the contrast and adding a little definition with clarity to the details and I think it is quite lovely. Thanks for baring with me while I explored my  barn love and if you have any suggestions for my next point of interest please share, I am feeling a little uninspired.

    I love how the fence leads up to the barn. Another barn with great character.

    I do love that red fence! Another fine shot here! Despite how run down the barn and surroundings are, the picture makes me feel clean and fresh. Can’t explain it.

    I have a suggestion for your next point of interest… you get this ball, you know?

      You and that ball!!! LMAO

      I like how you describe it, I think it is the blue skies and white clouds that make it feel clean because I feel the same way.

    Yes, another beautiful shot. I’ve enjoyed the barn series. Funny how they seem to be falling apart, yet appear so stately. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

      Thank you, I have enjoyed it too. Any suggestions on what you would like to see?

    What a perfectly framed picture! I love how the fence invites you in to the photo. And I also love the color of the roof against that gorgeous sky. Another great add to the barn series. I’ve really liked this week 😀 What’s next?

      Thank you, I forgot to add that the fence was only on one side of the shot, I cloned it to the other side because I wanted to create that feeling of being drawn in.

      And I am looking for suggestions for next week!!!

    How about action shots? People in the midst of doing stuff. These are some of my favorite photos. I took one at the Ren Faire a few years ago of a guy doing a belly flop into a mud pit and managed to get him in mid-air right above the mud!!

    The Ren Faire would be a good place to go to get shots like this but I would think the park on a sunny day would be nice too.

    And speaking of – perhaps THAT should be your next theme – sunny day shots. Especially since we’ve had to many lately.

      I do love actions shots 🙂 and I would LOVE to go to a con or Ren Faire to take photos. Sunny days are my nemisis though. All I can do is shoot on auto or AV mode. I have yet to master it. But I will try 😀

    I love this shot and this barn. Beautiful warm sunny day, with a few clouds and a gentle breeze…. You can almost smell the cow plop. Awesome! (This would make a great scratch and sniff picture!!)

    Call me a purest.. call me George… but I’m not a fan of ‘adding’ and ‘cloning’ things into a picture that aren’t there.

    THANKS for this BARN SERIES.. Can’t wait for the next round!!!

    I like the idea of ACTION SHOTS for your next gig. Freeze action and BLURRRRRRRR are fun to explore.. like that guy that threw water, a cat, and a bunch of stuff in the air, and froze it perfectly… I love stuff like that…

    Scratch and sniff BLEH you are a odd man Bill LOL

    There are very competing ideas about the use of photoshop but I love it, anything I can add to a photo to make it what I wanted is my creation. I understand the “purist” thought process but I enjoy playing in photoshop almost as much as I do taking photos.

    I will have to look into the action thing, not sure where I will find that much action but we shall see lol. Cats in the air, hmm that might freak me out!

    You really do like barns! 😉

    What about taking shots of stuff that you use in everyday life? Stuff that you wouldn’t think about taking a picture of?

    • mindymilburn June 30, 2010 at 10:02 am #

      I like this idea, I might have to use it next week. Thanks Aly!

    The clouds are an amazing canvas for this beautiful barn,
