    I spent a weeks vacation at my Grandmother's cottage this year in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and to thank her I search the country side looking for the round barns that she likes so much, with my camera in hand.

    I had taken a picture of one for her many years ago with a film P&S, hopefully I did a little better this time. I'm still learning my camera and this was about a week after I had the camera, so I shot a couple in automatic along with a few in manual but the automatic ones look a lot better. So I put those in photoshop to help them out a little.

    Can you please give me your thoughts on these picture (I'm ready for all of it so don't hold back)?

    Hopefully the pictures show, or I'll be back to edit this post.

    At the time most of them were originally built it was cheaper, easier to clean and feed the animals. All the food was dropped down in the middle and it fed them all at once. Easier to clean because they could go around the out side with a small tractor.

    The folklore around them is that there is no corner for the devil to hide in to start a fire.

    1. Is definately my favorite.
    2. Looks a bit washed out and clouds blown out. Maybe a little PP for the colors
    3. Love the composition but clouds again blown out; sky a bit bluer would be nice too.
    4. Clouds are blown out

    I wish I had the time to get out and shoot more of these kinds of pictures. Love seeing them but between schooling and working I don't get to! Love the shots though, never seen a round barn before!
