County G Barn Reflection by Trey Foerster

About the Image(s)

This roadside wetland is full of water due to May's bountiful rainfall in Central Wisconsin. It displays a reflection of a white barn on County Road G near County Road C in Waupaca County, Wisconsin. The image was shot around 10 a.m., ISO 635, f/11, 1/500 second, aperture priority, 46 mm. The high ISO was because of a wind which rippled the pond and a busy otter who kept reappearing (which you can see on the Original at left) along with Swallowtails. I processed through LR, then put it into TopazStudio for some landscape and painting presets, then back into LR for gradient filters. I also added more drama to the clouds and blued it up for a contrast with the white barn and red metal roof. I removed a telephone pole and some fence stakes along the shed.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Your working this image Trey, from the original to completion is very good, but, in my eyes, the sky seems just a little overdone. I little too dark and un-natural looking. If that is the effect you were wanting, in that case you've done very well. Changing the format from landscape to portrait enhances the final image well and focuses our attention on the barn.   Posted: 06/09/2020 05:09:16

Very nice. I agree with Ian, pop down just a notch. The red makes the image for sure, but perhaps dominates too much without a toning down.   Posted: 06/10/2020 10:21:58

Very nice image. I like bold colors that make an image pop. Great reflection on the water.   Posted: 06/11/2020 14:35:13

Trey, your use of the crop is well thought out in this image, for a pleasing composition. I agree with Ian & Sanford, the PP is just a tad too over done in the sky. I do like the colors in the reflection.   Posted: 06/14/2020 09:45:17

I prefer it juiced up, but here's a lower saturated version I think you would prefer.   Posted: 06/14/2020 15:16:55
