Re: Barns

I like them a lot, specially the last three pictures (sun shiny). Did you use in camera hdr or software to combine 3 images?

Re: Barns
  1. 5 has been horribly processed. HDR is a love or hate thing. But I can't imagine even a lover of HDR would be happy with the PP of #5.

Photography? What's that?

Nice shots. How did you get your camera to focus

Re: Barns

Thanks for the feedback! Three copies, (16 x 20, printed on canvas, texturized, matted and framed), sold: $250.00 each. You are correct, there really is no accounting for taste. (BTW: my prints look and are designed to be displayed like oil paintings. Niche market, but they sell.)

Warm Regards

Re: Barns

Greets. Generally, each of my final images, are three + images combined. I mask out and extract the sky into a separate image/layer, sharpen, burn, dodge and crank up or down, saturation. I then mask out and extract into a separate image/layer, elements in the image I want to highlight. I then recombine with the original image and adjust contrast and saturation for printing on canvas, (you have to crank up saturation because printing on canvas dulls the image). I then cut a matt and build a matching frame. The image is UV coated and texturized, again UV coated and sealed in the frame so it can be displayed like an oil painting, (not behind glass). They are unigue, one of a kind, works of art. ANY camera is limited by the laws of physics: your "minds eye/imagination" is not. The purpose of processing an image, (IMO), is to recreate what you saw at the time you, (not the camera), captured the image. To believe otherwise, would make the observation "Wow. You must have a really good camera" ... true. It isn't.
Warm Regards

I wish I had a niche market like that. Whenever I try and offer a very colourful picture, however natural, I get customers asking 'did you use photoshop?' It's almost as bad as 'you must have a very good camera'. Everyone has got so cynical these days. The thing that gets me is the next moment they'll go and buy a horrible comic toy sheep that goes Baaaah when they press its belly and a jar of marmalade that's been shown a bottle of Talisker from a hundred yards away.
Bitter? Moi?

Very nice shots. I like your PP techniques, too. My grandparents have a barn like #2.

Re: Barns

I love number two and four and I really like the sky in five. The old ruined ones really get me for some reason.

Not trying to be pedantic/curmudgeon etc, but the post proc isn't good. The leaves against the sky in the first shot are gray.

As this style isn't a favorite of mine, maybe gray leaves are part of the artistic appeal too nuanced for me to grok.

keep them coming..

there are clouds, light, vividness and texture in your shots that I like.

anything that has drama in the shot is good in my books..

Like them!

I love the unique style of pp and the barns. Very picturesque.
On a gear note, how do you like the Tamron 28-300?
