Another Angle

Posted by Mindi (Winfield, United States) on 17 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

Here is another angle of the old barn that I posted the other day.

I appreciate people who post their EXIF data along with their photos...that has been a huge help in furthering my skills.
Thanks for looking at my blog. I may not always reply to comments, but your comment will allways send me to your blog. All comments are welcome and appreciated!

These are lovely pictures, the compositions are brilliant and they have loads of character...
I hope you don't mind me giving a couple of tips to make them better - you're using a very high ISO and a very small aperture which is affecting the image quality I think - they are a little woolly looking and flat. Any aperture smaller (higher number) than f/16 will affect the overall sharpness of the shot, and the high ISO adds noise and loses detail. Try opening the aperture up to f/16 or f/11 and decrease the ISO (keep this as low as possible) - you'll still get a suitable shutter speed in this light. All these settings are pretty intimidating, but they become second nature soon!
Also have a play with the levels and contrast when you download them - this will make the colours more rich and vibrant.

@Christian: Thank you so much for the advice...I really appreciate it!!! I am a beginner and comments like yours are exactly what I need to know. I believe I had the camera settings on auto mode and I was surprised to see what the data was when I downloaded them. I will certainly try your advice out! Thanks again! :-)

One can only hope the owners realize its importance and think
of some restoration. It would be a crime to let it crumble.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Yes...I agree! Thank you Phil.

I like this side better, but we got to go back so you can get the creek in it to...I think it would make an awesome picture...Aunt Becky said there was probably a bell in it at one time...to ring for fires, emergencys and calling them in for meals and such. they had one in their barn..
