About the Image(s)

Nikon D7000 converted to 590nm
Exposure: 1/500 @ f/16 with ISO 400

I've been watching this barn for a long time because it is right next to Rt. 81 which is a major highway through western Virginia. I literally pulled off the highway, stood a few feet away from my car and took some pictures. I like the signs because they show both local tourist attractions in the Shenandoah Valley and political signage as well.

Usual post processing of doing white balance using a gray card in a different frame in Nikon NX-D followed by channel swap in Photoshop. Finally, I brought the image into On1 Photo Raw 2020 for post processing. I did some global stretching of the white and blacks in the scene and some contrast enhancement. Then I did some local adjustments to play with tones in the trees behind the barn. It was a cloudy day and I could not get much action in the sky in post processing.

I love the barn!. The roadway on the right and the orange foliage aid in the composition and overall scene.
