Came across this while driving aimlessly looking for something to shoot.

As always please feel free to comment or critique

This is a great shot. I'm a bit if a B&W nut and tried viewing it like that, I added a bit more shadowing and it looked fantastically atmospheric - great viewed on a black background. I would have posted a copy here but didn't know if it would offend you :shock:

I'll send you a copy of what I've done with it if you like. Hope this doesn't count as bad behaviour - if so apologies I'm new here.

Cheers
Scott

Black and white was my first insinct as well but it looks great as it is. The only suggestion I could add would be to go back on a stormy day and do an HDR of it. I think that would look quite good and it would certainly add to the mood of the photo. I also had a go at processing the image, but I left it as full colour and gave it a soft, diffused look which I think looks effective on this photo, but I'm no expert so it isn't perfect. I hope you don't mind!

Here it is:

I can remove it if you'd like me to. Please don't be offended! :(

When i see that i think HDR + stormy day rain + a few flashes around the entire house lighting up certain parts (yes i been reading the strobist i bit too much:))

nice old looking farm, but i m left wondering whats around it, what on the sides whats behind it? would mind seeing it this shot at 10mm :)

thanks for sharing

IMO, the original has too much trees and branches... and the second lacks focal point (don't blame me it's photoj's influence! :wink: )
