About the Image(s)

I liked this barn peeping out from the nestled trees. I was lucky with the sky. I guess this is adding to my growing collection of barns around the country. They just seem so suited to IR.
Converted using Life Pixel action for channel swapping. Silver Efex using control point to lighten and darken areas.
Topaz de noise was definitely needed here.

I like this very much, Melanie. To my eye, all the foreground whiteness is just a very effective frame for the segment of barn you are showing us. It has a mood and seems to tell us a story...well done.   Posted: 12/06/2019 12:32:58

I agree with you on barns, Melanie, and am a fan of yours! There's a nice feeling of whimsy here, and an interesting presentation of the barn tucked off to the right. I might have cropped just a little off the left, but I get what you were after, and appreciate it just the same. Very nice.   Posted: 12/10/2019 00:56:18

You captured the light just right with this image. The way the light catches the trees but not the barn nicely frames in the barn. The wispy sky adds but does not draw attention away from the primary subject. It's a minor tweak, but if left side was cropped a little, the barn might not appear as tight to the right side?   Posted: 12/11/2019 20:18:57
