Re: Barn: 3 small tweaks

Nice pictures. My favorite was the barn. I made three small tweaks, only one of which really jumped out at me - the vertical lines of the barn, out-building, and water tank were not vertical, and that always bugs me. So I rotated to vertical.

I will compare yours to mine. I need to develop a better eye for that. I use auto level in Lightroom but it isn't perfect.

The other two smaller tweaks - purely personal - lifted the shadows to show more of the dark side of the barn, and reduced highlights to show more detail of the snow.

Good idea to reduce highlights. I will try that. I'm in the habit of enhancing them.

Thanks for taking the time to rework my photo.
