Yes I like barns, which isn’t news to anyone. I also like sunsets. I also like sushi, burritos and Will Ferrel comedies. Now there is only so many things that I like which I can pack into a single photo, and my last full day in Indiana last week gave me two of my favorites. Barn & sunset.
While shooting this barn I was approached by a nice young man (25yo and about 6'4") asking "can I help you with something?" "No, Just photographing this barn" "Why?" "Because I like barns. I think this kid in his Chevy was just looking out for his neighbors and confused why anyone would want to take a picture of a barn.
This isn’t HDR, per se. I did bracket 3 shots for this (sunset, barn, foreground) and combined them manually in CS5, and then used Virtual Photographer to punch it up a bit. Surreal? Well yes, but when did I ever care about making a landscape look average and what you’d expect.
