For Barn Charm

Okay, I admit it - our barn is not quite this red, our skies are not quite this blue, our grasses are not quite this green.  I played with the hues a bit on this shot, but I liked the bright contrasts in how it turned out.   Note:  The old stump is pretty much as it looks.

In your memories, your barns will be the most charming reds, your grasses the most verdant green and your skies the babiest of blues. Looks good to me!

looks great! i'm afraid i'll have to wait until God decides to add a little color to my view, as just tweaking things a bit right now, isn't gonna cut it.

Jennifer said...

I was looking at some of the photos I have of barns and none of them are red. They are faded out to almost gray now.

I like the off red color :). Makes it look rustic.

Kymberly Foster Seabolt said...

Great shot! I think it's fine and fun to play with colors. It's not like you are trying to pass it off as God's work here. Sometimes it's just fun. Like back in school when you just used the extra bright crayons and colored a little harder :)

gigi said...

What a beautiful day to shot a barn!

Elaine said...

You did a lovely job! I like the point of view with the stump in front.

Evelyn S. said...

I like the adjustments, too! Just a little 'makeup' to play up the natural features of this delightful barn!

It makes a fine looking barn scene for Barn Charm. I like the saturated colors and nice amount of detail. Fine image.

I'm glad you played with the levels, it makes the scene look like it's May or June, I feel warmer already!

Tiffany said...

Oh so pretty, the colors are beautiful. Mostly it gives me a little hope that it might turn green up here in the Midwest.....

It is SOOOO nice to see COLOR! Great photo. We are still dealing with LOTS of gray, and GRAY and GRAY! A little color is a BREATH of fresh air!

Karen Thomason/Gordon Setter Crossing said...

I don't know why anyone would ever want to paint their barn any other color. Red is perfectly beautiful and makes a great picture.

Inger-M said...

Great composition showing good depth in this photo, just lovely! I would have believed you had you said the colors were real :-)
Old tree stumps are beautiful with their patterns, textures and shades of gray and brown.
