    Americana

    Just an old shed/barn out in the countryside. Some mild PP as I am just learning. C&C welcome.

    That is certainly part of rural American life. Nice capture...

    One of the best lessons to learn is often to go easy on the PP. As we've said in other threads, some PP is always necessary on things that come out of the camera (as RAW files of course). But knowing when to stop is as important as knowing what to do.

    On this one, Steve, you have magnificent subject matter. I love these old sheds. They offer so much opportunity. Throw in some nice old stuff in and around the shed, plus a tree with good overhanging branches and you have the perfect subject.

    With something like that it's all about exploring angles and perspectives. And there are probably a range of options available with that shed. Whether this was the best position for a shot of the shed, only you can decide.

    It's also about the best lighting options. You obviously took this with very direct sunlight present. That gives you quiet a broad dynamic range. Maybe that's what you wanted. But it makes capturing any detail inside the shed, whilst holding good exposure on the outside, all the more difficult.

    Are you able to go back to that location? I could spend hours there.

    Thanks for the comments. I probably can go back with the permission of the homeowner. I took this shot from the street as we passed by. Happy New Year to all.

    Very nicely done Steve,

    My only desire would be to see it hosted elsewhere so we could see it bigger
