Just when I was sure I’d photographed every old, abandoned barn in the County, I drove past one I’d never seen before. It was quickly approaching dark, so I made a point of getting up at the night owl’s crack of dawn (AKA 7:00 am) to go back and take some pics.
As it turns out, there was a big No Trespassing sign posted. Darn it! I got creative trying to work around a barbed wire fence and trotting between neat rows of soybeans behind the barn to get closer. The other challenge was that the sun was rising in the wrong direction of the angles I could shoot denying me of the early morning light I so wanted to include in the shots.
In the end, this was my favorite shot from that morning. I’m very luke warm about it, but since I went to so much trouble to shoot the barn, I thought I’d share it and get your feedback. As I get the chance to head back there at sunset, I think this shot would be much more interesting.
For now, just to keep things fun, here are three different treatments: original color, black and white, and sepia.
So, what feedback and words of advice do you have for me?
Barn Photo #1. The original shot in color looking west on an overcast morning about an hour after sunrise.
Barn Photo #2. A black and white version of the shot above.
Barn Photo #3. A sepia version of the shot above.
