    I like this one very much as well, but not quite as much as your grunge saloon shot earlier. But I can't figure why no one else has commented on the saloon shot. I'm pretty novice, but thought I had a good eye. What are we seeing (liking) that no one else is?

    This just great - I can almost imagine an old guy in grease stained overalls taking a rest on the bench.

    Beautiful image Kevin... I especially admire how you manage to capture the light, and tiny details such as the reflections in the windows.

    Kevin,
    I liked very much this nice (and sharp) picture. So many details!
    But, I have two questions (I am always trying to learn something new):
    1- What means "@6.3" (on the EXIF data)?
    2- What is a "Rural Americana"? (It seems a spanish expression; in English I would expect something like "American Rural).
    Antonio.

    Glad you liked it, Antonio, and thanks for viewing and taking the time to comment.


    @6.3 refers to the aperture- F6.3

    Americana is a cultural reference to anything quintessentially and generally uniquely American.

    "1.
    ( often used with a plural verb ) books, papers, maps, etc., relating to America, especially to its history, culture, and geography.

    2.
    ( used with a singular verb ) a collection of such materials"

    Cheers,

    Kevin, the way you processed this image really makes it interesting to look at.

    Re: Rural Americana

    Kevin,
    Thank you very much for your explanations.
    I should realize that "@6.3" is "f/6.3" or "F6.3" (sometimes our brains fail inexplicably), but I couldn't guess the sense of "Rural Americana". Before asking you, I tried the Merrian-Webster online, but I didn't get the answer. Today, I've learned something new ("I'm always living and learning").
    Which camera you used? The Sony SLT-A99 or the Sony SLT-A77? This is important because of the crop factor of Sony SLT-A77.
    Best regards,
    Antonio.

    Terrific image Kevin.

    So that's how Walmart looked long ago.

    Thanks for your explanation Kevin.

    Hi Antonio, I guess we both have the same problem. I'm not a born English speaker so I usually google some of the words/phrases I read on this forum and elsewhere. Good thing Kevin explained what "Rural Americana" means. In our country "Americana" means 2 things. An American girl or suit/coat.

    Thanks, Karm. Tone-mapped in Photomatix, then nudged down the clarity and vibrance in Lightroom 4 so it wouldn't be quite so garish.
