About the Image(s)

This image of the old barn had a really good sky. It was taken with a Nikon D7200, and Nikon 18-300mm lens at 26mm, 1/250 second, f11 and ISO 200. I cropped it a bit, but mainly used the healing tool to get rid of the writing on the wall, and then used prospective warp to straighten the barn sides.

Such a historic house! not sure if dark the sky a bit, will make the house more stand out?   Posted: 06/08/2020 02:29:59

Nice composition and a great subject! I think you have too much sky. It takes the interest away from the red barns. I would crop 2/3 of the sky and darken it a bit. It is so sad to see all the holes in the roof and the need of paint. Loss of family farming. It really tells a PJ story as well as a well seen image.   Posted: 06/09/2020 13:01:17

Great picture. I love old buildings, barns, and machines. They are full of character and strength. This one is so majestic, weathering the elements with such determination. I, also. would like the barn to stand put a bit more. What caught my eye was the tree on the right side. It seems to pull my eye away from the barn.   Posted: 06/10/2020 09:30:11

It's a interesting historical abandoned old barn building. I like the composition with beautiful sky and clouds. I would like to brighten the whole image, because it is a nice and bright weather. Also the tree on right side is too dark, that's why Paul say "It seems to pull my eye away from the barn." I think you might adjust dark area brightness to retrieve more details.   Posted: 06/18/2020 18:26:32

Nice capture of this old barn, also good work getting rid of the writing on the wall. I do agree with Grace and Barbara, I think you could make the sky a little darker and crop some of the clouds out, but that is just my opinion.

I also like shooting old buildings and decayed properties. I favor your perspective not being on center. Like the others in our group, I would favor creating separation and cropping in on the sky and dark tree to the right.   Posted: 06/27/2020 17:10:59
