The End Of My View

The beautiful barn, across the street from my house, will soon no longer be there.  I must say that even though I will never forgive my neighbors they did have the barn taken down in style!  They were considerate enough to have the barn dismantled in a photo-friendly way.  This scene unfolded by surprise since I did not know the barn was coming down; therefore, I grabbed my camera and shot the images through my bedroom window.  They aren't award winning photos but they tell a story.

The photo above has a vignette effect and the photo below has a 'glow' added to it.  Since the sky was so bright and white I chose a 'glow' to make the subject blend with the sky.  Rather than apologize for the white sky I worked with it.

 Below, I turned the image into an old-fashioned image. Again, I think the subject lends itself to an antique look.

These are AWESOME!!! I love the compositions and the filter effects you applied. Great job!

I, too, am sad that this beautiful barn will no longer be there. Given the method of its dismantling, I'm certain that this barn will live on in a different location. But I will miss it when I visit you at your house!

OMGoodness!!! These are beautiful. I kept going between the three of them, but I think my favorite is the first one.

The filters you used really worked with the images--and I love the second one for that reason.

Besides being a good photographer, you were definitely in the right place at the right time.
