Before and After
Today was my "low-desparate" day in photography. I could not find anything that really struck me to capture. But at 4:01, in Amsterdam, NY, there was a break of sunshine. Actually, there was a pretty cool sunset here. This barn sits on rt 67, a quarter mile North out of Amsterdam. The sun came out and made the red-outlined windows "pop". I pulled over quickly and shot this image in fear of the sun getting lost behind clouds again. I did it! I got the picture I wanted, remembering Linda's advice of photographing 3 to make it more interesting. I think the three windows are interesting. To be honest, the rest of the barn was not. Anyway, because I have no life (ha, ha) I sat at my computer this evening adding the blue sky and clouds in the second picture. Picture one is untouched, photo two is manipulated in that I added the clouds. I didn't go as slowly in the touch-up as I should have so you will see flaws; however, please notice the overall effect.
