On the outskirts of El Dorado, Wisconsin. I had four shots prepared for this post but decided a single picture said it all. About a quarter of the barn has been pulled down, providing lots of light to the interior. Generally I can’t get clarity for rafters and such if I’m shooting from outside but all this light was most helpful!

If you care about technical things: it was an extraordinary day with snow and sky being nearly interchangable.  I was shooting at almost a full stop up so when it was time to edit,  sky and snow were already gone. There were a few junky things near the barn. I overexposed them and POOF! they disappeared as well.

    So glad you added the technical stuff because I was going to ask how you got this barn floating on a white background. Thought for sure you did lots more voodoo. Nice shot.

    • Thank you. If I was Photoshop-fluent, it should be easy to accomplish the same effect with a few deft moves…but I don’t know how. Maybe I need to get a couple of lattes the size of my car and just sit down with a teach-yourself manual.
      And a leather strap clamped firmly in my teeth to spare the neighbors the sound of my screaming…

    Some day soon all these scraped red sculptures are going to transcend into the spheres of Nirvana. You found a way there first.

    Great shot! I grew up in Iowa – brings back memories of the Midwest for me!
