About the Image(s)

My monochrome image for March is attached along with the original. This image was captured at an unused stone barn. The plants growing inside the barn against the window caught my attention along with the patterns of the wood, stone, and paint. The exposure settings were f/8, ISO 200, 1/60 s, tripod mounted.

More interesting as a mono than colour, I think. I like the symmetry which is relieved by the wires, particularly the prominent one. The texture of the leaves contrast nicely with those of the stone and wood.   Posted: 03/03/2020 17:05:28

I am attracted to the detail and the subject matter stirs my curiosity. I find interest everywhere I look. Very well done!   Posted: 03/04/2020 00:02:58

An interesting shot. For me you might try slightly burning down the window frame, as it appears overly bright and some detail is lost. Then darken the leaves within each sub frame to allow the frame to showcase the subject.   Posted: 03/06/2020 11:20:15

Jerry, your conversion to black and white is excellent in tonality. I agree the subject is very interesting with lots of textures and patterns that make it perfect for mono effect. In my opinion, I find the wires distracting and thus diminishing the scene of the window.   Posted: 03/06/2020 16:56:59

I like the mono better also. The textures and patterns seem to standout better. Interesting that the plants are growing inside the barn. I was trying to figure that out. Not what I expected. There are a lot of images of barn windows, but this one is unique giving it additional interest. Good eye.   Posted: 03/07/2020 17:26:32

I like the mono but found the wires very distracting so I removed them with content aware fill and one or two attempts at cloning out the last vestiges leaving just a small few spots on the window pane to resemple cracking of the pane.   Posted: 03/15/2020 14:29:24

I appreciate what you were trying to do, however the out-of-place muntons are much more disturbing to me than the wire. It was the weathered imperfections that attracted my attention to this window, also the leaves growing inside the barn window.   Posted: 03/17/2020 15:05:57

A challenge! OK, how about this? Affinity's inpainting brush took out most of the wires (and what looked like reflections in the panes) and where it didn't, the clone brush did a tidier job.   Posted: 03/23/2020 11:24:05

Nicely done. I'm glad to see that this image and its processing generated some discussions.   Posted: 03/27/2020 13:05:58
