    I heard about this great old vacant farm from a friend recently, and had a chance to stop by and photograph it. The mid day sun, sky, and bright grass all seemed to play nicely together. C&C always welcome and appreciated. Thanks for looking! :)

    1. Wasnt sure about the wide angle. I may play with the perspective on this one yet.

    Nice shots...totally Midwest.

    errr...are you sure this is vacant? The grass is cut and it looks like they have a nice little garden planted.

    Nice shots. I had the same reaction as MarcusM about it being vacant. Maybe they just went to Vegas for the weekend?

    Thanks, yes it is. :)

    Thanks Marcus. By vacant, I mean no one lives on the property. However, the owner lives just down the road and tends the property regularly. ;)

    Thanks much.

    NJ,

    I like the first image the most and think it has a nice "country" feel to it. I don't think the composition is to far off for what the subject is. The colors of the grass, barn and sky look great.

    I think the image would capture my attention more if there was some miscellaneous farm equipment laying about, some fall colors in the trees or some snow on the ground. If I were you I'd probably poke around here when the seasons change to see what I could come up with (if you live close enough). It's like the image almost looks to clean.

    In the third shot, I like the way the light is shining on the roof of the barn but I find that pickup truck peeking over the top of the bushes a bit distracting.

    I'm really drawn to the weathered paint and wood. Just an idea, but what about getting in there nice and tight a making a couple images around the doors, windows and the contrast between the rock foundation and the red wood.

    Thanks for sharing and as always, I enjoy seeing your work.:D

    Nice mix of primary colors...red, blue, green.

    The bright saturated colors, along with the HDR, really give these photo some BAM! They kind of slap the viewer in the face. Maybe it's too much...but maybe it's just different.

    Nice work though. :)

    Thanks schumion!

    Hey thanks Mike for stopping by and commenting. "slap the viewer in the face"...LOL, I've never heard that one before. But that sounds good to me, because it tells me that I made some kind of impact. ;)

    I have always been a big fan of vibrant color, so I hope these deliver. Thanks again for the kind words!
