[Edit: I'm getting into the realm of a different forum with this now, but I've added two different versions of this shot to show lesser amounts of blur.]

This is more processed than what I usually do. After converting this to BW, I applied a Gaussian blur to all but the structure.

I realize this may not be to the taste of some and so any comments are most welcome.

1. original with the greatest amount of blur

I like it but the blur is a little too much. Leave the blur, but back it off just a touch and I think you would have a winner.

Thanks for the comments, Tim and Terri. I'll put together a few versions with lesser amounts of blur - which I should have done from the start...

Thank you, Raul. Getting the barn to pop out was my aim. Number two seems more like natural DOF, but as it turned out, I rather liked the exaggerated effect in number 1. Number 3 just seems rather bland to me.
