    Ive noticed how barns provide great shots for B+W, and run down buildings, i spotted this on the way to work yesturday, so stopped by this morning. My first ever shot of a barn in B+W... Any tips...

    The sky and lighting today was a bit naff, it was like a grey sheet with no detail, so i messed about with that.

    Ive put a post in the Graphic Problems section, to see if anyone can help me with the sky.

    I agree. Back in the Midwest we would call that a "swayback" barn. I think you did a great job shooting it.

    There is not only a problem with the sky, there are no bright tones on this photo. Strange. Was it intentional? Did you used any filter (red, yellow?)

    What happens, if you do an "auto-histogram"?

    Otherwise, the photo is nice, the barn communicates a kind of relaxing feeling.

    Simply set white, black and mid tone points in levels. :)

    Erm i dunno lol, 1) i dont know what you mean, and 2) i dunno how ive done it. The sky has been very low in detail and quite a dense grey sheet, would that have done it? What can i do to incrase the bright tones, its thats whats made the sky flat? No filters used etc, just Canon 350d and 18-55mm lens.

    I dunno how to auto histogram, i found this in photoshop???

    Half of the picture is sky? That makes it hard to attend to the barn.

    I like half the picture being sky. Barn pictures become so boring and cliche, but the large sky makes this interesting.
