    Treat Yourself to the Best

    Day 22: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Canon 500D, EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM @ 33mm, full EXIF, PAD slideshow.

    An old barn with an old advertisement on a working farm. I'm guessing that it hasn't been torn down because the Mail Pouch Tobacco Barns are actually a bit of Americana. See Wikipedia article. It may still be in use: I can see a padlock on the door.

    C&C always welcome.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Hi Shauna,

    Welcome to the CiC forums from me.

    Try this.

    Step 6 onwards is what you may have overlooked

    btw, you can go back and edit your posts to add more after thoughts (or pictures)

    Thanks, Dave! I appreciate your help! I feel a little better knowing it wasn't something obvious that would make me look bad. I have gone back and added my picture.

    Hi, Shauna, and welcome to CiC!

    These threads (Day20, Day21, etc) are set up for a photo-a-day challenge that some people have been doing for July. You can post your image here if you like: we're not real big on rules around here, except that you have to use Canon gear (only kidding ).

    But it may be more productive for you to start a thread with your image in one of the sections like Nature and Architecture. Just go to the section you think makes sense for your photo and click "+ Post New Thread." That way, all the comments in the thread will be about your photo, and any questions and discussions will be in one place, which helps keep things understandable if you get off into discussions.

    This thread explains how to post an image, but please do post back with a question if you have problems.

    And after posting, I see that Dave beat me to the punch again.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    No worries, Shauna: as I said, we're not big on rules, and no one would be bothered if you posted in this thread. It's just that you're likely to have more useful discussion of a photo if you start a thread with it.

    I like your image: the silhouette in front of the subtle sky tones is nice, and the diagonals make a nice composition. It's also good that you can see the details of some of the clothespins, it adds more interest, I think. Just as a suggestion, maybe crop a bit at the bottom so the upper clothesline ends at the corner? Maybe not.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    PS: Not really a "contest" (hopefully we're all winners, although nobody will be judging) - so feel free to jump in to the PAD threads or just as equally, feel free to start your own thread, or just let Dave or I know and we can move your posts for you ...

    ... so many options, all "too easy"

    No photo from today, but a tribute to the most gentlemanly cat I have ever known. Never intentionally hurt a human during his 13 year journey with his family. Rest in peace, old fella - you were very much loved.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. These pets become part of the family for sure and it is always very difficult when they leave.

    Nice shot Rick and very interesting. Many of the barns in this area used to have Religious advertising, but I've never seen product adds like this. The sign itself looks very well maintained. Hope they keep it that way.

    Interesting shot, Rick. Thought I knew a fair bit of American history, but I must confess I've never heard of these. Pity you couldn't get some old boy leaning against the barn, smoking!
