Abandoned heritage

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by maraya, Aug 6, 2009.

  1. Was out a while ago and captured this house and a barn on the same property in the full light of day. At the urging of some members went back and tried for a few in the golden hr. Here are the house and barn pics.

    I really like #2. The shadow in #1 is distracting. A rusted tractor or plow in the right side of #2 would clinch it. Did you try it in a b&w conversion?
  7. First think I will try for a sunrise....the hedge row is absent there and maybe I will be lucky with the light. Thanks for your kind commnets and for looking

    Thanks Steve

    Thanks Rob. It is an uncommon style of barn for this area which is why it caught my eye.

    truonion thanks for you comment. I am sure it must have been lovely....Its a shame really to see it fall apart....makes me sad.

    Thanks Tommy. There actually was a new peice of farm equipment in behind the house....hence the odd angle. I am hoping for a return visit for the sunrise and maybe better light. will give B&W a try...I am still really learning.

    Thank you all for your kind comments
    Cheers Barb
  8. Beautiful! I bet that barn would have some stories to tell if it could talk!
  9. Nice ones.
  10. I love it! :smile:
  11. Very nice. I can feel some nostalgic mood, specially on the 2nd. Old barns are really nice subjects and you managed to get impressive pictures of these.


    D300, D200 coupled with a bunch of some fine Nikon:smile: glass


  12. Thank you Panther from the AFB in Louisiana...I appreciate your comment. I am planning a return visit for the sunrise as I think the shadows will not be there on the house or the barn and the light might be a bit more nostalgic.
  13. Thanks Rui. I appreciate your comments. These are uncommon style of barn for here in Alberta so for that alone it caught my eye.
