The Barn Photo Redux - The Sequel

Back to this morning.

I drive this little road that connects my residential area with a drive that takes us to downtown. It runs behind a golf course and serves as the edge of our metropolis. I love to call this road "Bob's Road." (Name that movie!)

This bridge is in the golf course. It crosses a little creek that floods every time it gets wet in these parts.

I did touch this up a little in Photoshop. The exposures just don't seem right.
These next two pictures are of our favorite subject...the barn on Bob's Road.

Here are two more angles of the same barn. I'd love to here what everyone thinks.

This barn is scheduled for demolishion this spring. Bob's Road will be growing up and be turned into a real road. So if anyone has ideas of what can be done with this subject let me know. Just remember, I have to take the pictures from the road. As far as I know, this barn is still on private property. The property appears abandoned, but I just don't know.

This second one is very similar to the shot I took last winter only this time, I turned the camera over.

I'm really liking this one. I like it better than the one from last year, but I'm not sure its better than the post from this morning.

I'm a big fan of the rule of thirds. I also really like photos with vast empty space. This fits them both.

Do you like pictures like this?

Lastly, I found these log/brush piles. I've been watching them for a few years. I think there is a photo here, I'm just not sure this is the one.

In other news, I do need to tell everyone that I know have a nice collection of lenses now. I got today a 50mm Prime lens. With this last lens, I think I'm finally got a nice range of focal lengths.

More pictures from the 50mm coming soon.

Be sure to answer these questions! All feedback accepted and appreciated!

The Barn Photo Redux

It's another beautiful day here in MN. I'm approaching my last day at my current job. This caused me some serious issues this morning.

You see, the conditions were perfect for more hoarfrost. Todays coating was about the thickest I've ever seen. Man-o-man getting to work without filling the memory card was a challenge.

I swung by my old haunts to find one of my favorite barns looking might nice.

The only adjustment to this picture was bit of of upping the exposure on the RAW converter. Otherwise, this is as shot.
