    Barns are the American castles: they're big, regal, usually crumbling, sometimes scary/intimidating, and one of my favorite architectures. I shot these w/ my 4x5 using color film. Scanned the negatives and used photoshop to apply a duotone. Enjoy!

    I don't understand why you tilted the top of the frame of the last one out of focus.

    cause I wanted the brightest part of the silo where the ladder is to be in focus.
    i also had the camera tilted down and shifted the front up so that there would be upward divergence...did that in #s 1 and three as well

    Hmm...not really digging them. Sorry. Too centered. Nice to see somebody somewhat local.

    These are cool. Though I'm not a fan of selective colouring, I think that look sort of good if you did it on the barns. Maybe worth a try?

    here are the barns in color. mind you, these are not edited (other than very minor curves adjustments) so there is dust, no cropping..etc. The real reason they were in duotone is because i did this for an assignment in my digital class way back in the day. and since i didn't shoot w/ a dig camera, i had to do some sort of digital manipulation.

    I like them better in full color. 1, 5, and 6 are the ones I like the best--I was really hoping that 4 would be a bit more vibrant (and I really like the lines and perspective in it) but perhaps the blue tarp in the lower right corner is a bit too distracting?

    i agree about the tarp, i also wish the sky in 4 wasn't so white, but that's what happens with bright overcast winter days.
    i think i like #5 and 6 the best. i have another like #6 that is horizontal and shows more of the barn. i'll probably post that one tonight.

    Much better in color. You can't go wrong with pictures of barns.
