    Old Barns . . . part 2

    A few more photos of the barns that I shot today. Advice and comments welcome.

    I like #2 and 3 the most, with three the absolute best. Several things to consider: the little bit of debris in the left foreground (yellow) should have been removed as well as the green thing close to the door. Because of all the yellow-orange weeds, etc, this is almost most certainly going to work better as a B&W. I would be tempted to crop a little tighter on the left side and bottom.

    Kathy you are really getting some very nice images, as you were having some problems a couple of months ago with what you were getting. A lot of stuff happening here, if you can get up close and personel to help get the weathered look of the wood, the light and dark tones, and the edges and shadows inside the barn. Looking good.

    What wonderful subject material. I could spend hours there.

    I'm not sure we need as much of the foreground, Kathy, and that, in a future shoot, you could, as Allan suggests, get up closer and explore different angles.

    Although the first one with that old pump in the foreground does tend to 'set the scene in context.'

    Allan and Donald,
    Here is a close up shot that I took, I didn't post it with the others because I felt that it was a little to straight and forward, not alot of creativity with the shot, but I thought I would put it up here for you all to see. Thanks for the input it is very much appreciated. I do intend on going back to this area and shooting some more photos . . . on a less windy day

    I really did like the first photo because it did have the pump in it, but I also thought maybe the pump didn't stand out enough Thanks for your input Geoff!

    Did you perhaps sacrifice a bit too much in this last shot? I feel you should have retained the arch formed by the lowest branch of the tree because it creates a natural frame, no?

    Kathy when you go out next time, try sneaking up on it from less of a head on approach, more from the sides to get some angles. The one with the pump of the three does look the best.

    I agree, I did not spend much time there today due to the terrible wind. Thanks again Allan for the encouragment!

    Love the barn, but I am now fixated on that pump! Could you try a shot with a close up of the pump with the barn in the background? What a great place.
