Abandoned Farm House

This was in Door County, WI this fall. IN LR, I enhanced the exposure and cropped it a bit. I entered it in my camera club competition. The judges liked it but one said he thought it would work better as a vertical. What do you think?

To me, not vertical but more contrast. The clouds are beautiful. Nice capture.   Posted: 11/13/2020 20:34:57

I took it into silver effect pro. Decrease the brightness, increase the contrast and structure. Then used my control points to bring highlights to the old barn and the foreground. I love this image. Left the trees as is.   Posted: 11/13/2020 20:39:35

I could really go far with this image to be a winner.   Posted: 11/13/2020 20:45:20

Thank you for all the info on how to make a better BW. I will try it. The day before this photo, we went by this house and several vultures were busy eating a roadkill. They flew to the roof and I was lucky to get this shot.   Posted: 11/13/2020 21:34:14

I just checked my data and this was taken the same day as the other one. We did stop the next day for more pictures but the light wasn't as good as it was the day before.   Posted: 11/13/2020 21:39:27

Sometimes the sky seems to co-operate just right, and this is wonderful! I like both what Tom did to convert it into a b&w, and I also like the image of the vulture landing on the roof! Nice catch Kathy.

Beautiful sky! Excellent composition. I would darken the sky just a little.

Love the sky and old homes. The B& W is very neat not a fan of the vertical. It always nice when the weather helps make the image.   Posted: 11/24/2020 14:34:29

Apathy, my preference is the B & W! The sky in B&W is more dramatic! Love it!   Posted: 11/29/2020 18:54:27
