  #124 Monochrome (Gray Scale or Toned)
Entry 17 of 40
   
 
Barn       ©2013 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ200       16th place, 67 points
1/125s, f5.6, ISO 100, 26mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Taken from a low angle, so perspective had to be altered. Cropping and minor cloning as a result of perspective change. Converted to B&W using Topaz, de-noised and re-sized for entry.       Extra Info: Afternoon at the farm

    A fine shot here. The only thing I miss is the human element. If not an actual person, perhaps footprints in the snow.

    I love the way the building towers over me in this shot - it gives the barn an almost human look on it's face. The lighting is perfect and gives substance to the face of the barn while reflecting the cold of the day, there does not seem to be any warmth in that sunlight at all.

    Thank you so much - This has been a terrific learning experience. Even though I was taking shots with conversion in mind, most of what I took did not translate well into monochrome. It takes a special "eye" to see the possibilities.

    As building go and farm buildings in particular, you've really enthused this one with personality and your own perspective in presentation. I think this is quite good.

    Thanks Laree, Johncomyn - The barn is part of the Experimental Farm in the centre of Ottawa. They test new crops, and maintain cows, horses, sheep and pigs. The farm and many of its buildings are open to visitors, and it is a favourite destination for families.

    Great PP work, beautiful Barn or has it been converted into a home? Exposure is spot on.

    You did a great job with adjusting the perspective. I was wondering how you got the building to look "so right". That was my first thought when I opened this image. That is impressive all on it's own. It is a very clean shot and nicely converted too.
