  #110 Fading away
Entry 9 of 17
   
 
As time passes by......       ©2011 Ronoz
Panasonic DMC-L10       9th place, 113 points
1/320s, f5.6, ISO 400, 28mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Converted to monotone, cropped to emphasise the junction of road, drive & post , a little unsharp mask applied, highlights darkened to bring out the clouds, cloned out a distracting white post on the left.       Extra Info: An old weatherboard house built early last century by one of the other pioneering families in the district, as young (5-6 y/o) kid I used to drop in to see old Granny Lorensene for a chat and ginger biscuit or two on my past......she's long gone of course and her home gradually collapses...I like the association of it's empty shell and the the road passing by and on reflection I think the cropped telephone pole could be likened to a cross at a cemetery....any way this ole house is certainly fading away !

    Appreciate the comments, it was taken late afternoon, in colour & have then pp'd to B&W and darkened a little to give it a better feel and match the theme, I used the shadows/highlights function in PS3 to bring up the clouds a bit more, the telephone pole analogy was an afterthough & didn't have that in mind at the time, overall pretty happy with the way the scene has turned out...Thx

    I think the idea of the cross is great - I tried cropping the left side and it seemed to bring out that concept even more.

    I love the history of this image - totally fits the theme!
The cloud effect really appeals to me - something I have not yet been able to achieve in my own photos

    What time of day was this taken? Monotone suits this scene and theme perfectly. In my top picks.
