Some more recent pictures for you folks to enjoy.

These are done in HDR photography, so it appears they almost look like paintings. All shot by myself.

Thanks for sharing Josh! You've caught some great barns in your photos!

Your HDR style is a little heavy for my taste, but I enjoyed seeing the barns none the less.

Please continue to share!

Thanks,

Tom

ps - I am in a Facebook "Old Barns" group- check us out if you are on FB- your photos would be enjoyed there also! https://www.facebook.com/groups/26507485101

Agreed, I prefer the straight-up photos. One of the reasons I started checking in on City-Data in the first place was Josh's cool photos popping up on image searches. Regardless, it's nice to see the shots even if they are overly "impressionistic."

Completely understand guys! That's why photography is all about is being critiqued! I will definitely mix it up more as I'm trying to get out and shoot more photos.

Hey, take it all with a grain of salt... Opinions are like... well, you know. That said, I'll share a bit more.

I am personally trying to find my own HDR "sweet spot", but I am rarely 100% happy with what I produce.

Most of the time, my goal with HDR is "to reproduce what the eye perceives but the camera cannot capture", rather than to convert my photo into a painting-like work of art.

I shoot lots of bracketed exposures (mostly handheld) and then, if I really like a given photo, try both HDR variations (using Luminance HDR) and also conventional photo editing in Gimp- sharing my favorite result.

Sometimes I post HDR and non-HDR versions and let my viewers vote with their likes and comments.

At the end of it all, nothing matters except that *you* like your photo.

But a favorable response from others is nice sometimes.

I just realized that I've neglected this forum for far too long... I better post something.

What could be more "favorable" than mentioning the fact that the main reason I'm here is his previous photos?

Default Well Hidden, Almost Forgotten

I took these photos near Dodgeville.

The church and cemetery are hidden from the road, and I am sure that many cars pass by everyday, unaware that they are there.

The driveway looks like a farm road and has a cable across it- very easy to miss.

The site was fairly well maintained for a church which appears to no longer be having weekly services.

The album is here, in case the individual image links are broken later:

And just across the road:

Default Winter Long-Exposure HDR

I shot this last winter, in the field next to my house.

The bright spot is the moon behind the clouds.

Really, it seemed almost pitch black to my eyes- but with a long enough exposure, it almost seems like daytime.
