    I often wondered where you lived! You really need to stop spending so much time and money on photography.

    Perhaps - but I think it really just comes down to priorities!

    As usual Colin, a well executed shot, great composition.

    It's a shame you can't get "in there", I'm sure there would be all manner of photo opportunities to be found (with a hard hat).

    Cheers,

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the feedback

    To be honest, I haven't been able to get out shooting much recently - and this is one that I've always wanted to shoot (it's 5 min drive from where I live), so I thought I'd "go zap it" tonight.

    Would be intereting to get inside - there are a few around here like that. I might do a series of them.

    Not sure what the "story" is with them (not that there's that many of them) - no doubt some are used as hay barns / chicken coups etc. All are on farm land, so space isn't really an issue.

    Nice shot. I love to shoot old vehicles, houses and barnes....there's always an untold story behind the image.

    Colin,

    This is a very nice picture. As others said, a house like this seems always to have an untold story. I found the house is very sharp, did you use a telephoto lens for this shot?

    Hi Yan (and Chuck too - sorry, missed your reply!),

    Thanks for the kind words Yes - I used an EF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM, @ 200mm (off memory). It was only intended as a "shot whilst I'm waiting for a real shoot" type thing, but it is growing on me

    Hi Colin,

    First I thought it was an HDR version. Nice range of colors and as always.. nice shot .

    Thanks Ajith,

    I processed it on my uncalibrated home PC - it did take a bit of coaxing to get the tones where I wanted them, looking at it at work I might just raise the black clipping point a little to make it a touch more contrasty.

    It was really just a fun shoot, but it's growing on me
