Old Car, Barn, and Texture

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 15 July 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The Palouse, in addition to beautiful landscapes, has numerous old barns. I couldn't resist a bit of texture on this scene. A tour participant (thanks, Joe!) helped me get this shot: I mounted my camera on his REALLY high tripod, and he got me a folding chair, which I stood on - so as to get separation and positioning of the elements in the scene.

Some wonderful clarity. Seems that it took some dexterity.

Great composition and excellent work in post processing. The texture adds a dramatic atmosphere to it and it also makes it looking older. Very good photo.

in your camera, but you have gone beyond the realm into a world
of art.
