About the Image(s)

Travelling through the country side, I came upon this abandoned barn and truck. They just called out to the photographed.

To me this would make a stronger monochrome image, as currently the strongest colour is the blue of th sky and this attracts the eye.   Posted: 07/10/2021 06:59:50

Thanks Jon. I do really like it as a B&W image.   Posted: 07/11/2021 22:09:06

Great photo crying out to be black and white. Might also be fun to crop to just the truck and old barn. How fun to travel those back roads capturing the country side. Just playing with the weeds in front of the truck.   Posted: 07/15/2021 10:06:39

I like that the outlines of the hut and car seem to run "in tandem" so to speak. I agree that monochrome is a good idea. It's not clear to me what the main subject is. Taken from a different position you might have been able to get two good shots, with either the car or the hut.   Posted: 07/16/2021 17:05:15

To me the sky is not part of the story you have captured. Just crop it off. I really like the curved wall of the shed.
Stories like this are often better with sunset light.   Posted: 07/17/2021 03:10:05

Since the mid-day light is pretty flat, I do like the suggestion of monochrome which works with higher contrast images. I would like to see more of the barn.   Posted: 07/19/2021 10:21:05
