Good Morning, My favorite is the 3rd one. Have a nice day.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Good Morning Tex! My favorite, the B/W and then the third one.. :)

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

like the black and white in this bucolic setting and the third pic.

the only problem with the third one though, it reminds me of a spot as a nino I would go behind the tree and brush to 'tinky'.

Ooops, does that make me bad?

Country Gal said...

Love the first photo in BW ! nice photos !

georgettesullins said...

The first two look like scenes from long ago. Nothing much has changed, has it?

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
The last two look lovely, peaceful and very natural. The one above that makes one think there is frost on the ground...
Hugs,
Mariette

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I like the first one, almost looks like snow:@)

Carole M. said...

I think I rather like the first version the best

Mersad said...

Simple, yet very effective.

messymimi said...

A lovely, lonely scene.

cobie en bas van Es said...

ja ik ga voor de vierde,

eViL pOp TaRt said...

An interesting contrast, the same scene but at different times and different lighting. Very artistic!

Molly The Wally said...

We tried to choose a fav but we liked them all. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Lynn said...

I like how you've cropped something I have trouble doing, and the three effects are all super, my fav is the third one.

Kate said...

It is interesting to see how the photo changes, depending upon the tone.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, love all three of the simple Texas pictures, so nice not to see white on the ground, Thanks Francine.

KaHolly said...

Simply Texas, indeed! Great pics!

Jeanne said...

Like this scene alot, and especially like your black and white!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Mike said...

The black and white brings back memories of my Texas childhood.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I think my favorite is the second one :)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I enjoyed each of them...so fun to play with editing tools. Happy Thursday~

Siddis back home said...

Lovely photos, memories of my Texas life….

Sandra said...

and I wish i could simply find Scotty to beam me up and down into simply Texas so I could SEE and Snap all this beauty... until he shows up I will view Texas here

Revrunner said...

Nice! I like the various looks. Sort of lean to the sepia. Captures that rural flavor.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I love all three edits- but black and white always makes me think of my childhood days for some reason..yeah, I'm just old.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I like seeing the different effects.

DJan said...

Nice! I like the third one the best, but they are all nice. :-)

Lynne said...

And what spends time beyond . . .
One shot, great affects!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Interesting how the different formats affect the feel of the fence. The first one looks like night time with a FULL Moon! My fav is the third one in color, up close and personal!

Nancy said...

I would be hard pressed to pick one....They are all beautiful...

Dicky Bird said...

I like it and image a hard worker behind that roll of barb

parker said...

The coiled loops of the Devil's Rope hanging on the brace post sets the feel of the scene for me. The B&W is a strong image. Nice.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I like it!!! All styles and effects!!!

Montanagirl said...

Nice - How do I choose? I believe I like the last one best with the tree on the right side.

valerietilsten59.blogspot.com said...

Love the way you have shown the fence in 3 different colors.
Can you do that when taking the shot.! I am not very savvy there.
I like the simplicity of the gate.

Barb Brookbank said...

I enjoyed seeing all the different versions of this simple and beautiful scene.

ladyfi said...

So gorgeous - especially that black and white one.

Muffy's Marks said...

Such a simple subject, probably with a complex story to tell.

Judy said...

I love your simply Texas post.

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

my favorite is #1 shot. awesome view. i love how a fencing view can be so simple & perfect. ( :

Paula said...

Yep simply Texas, Love it.

A Quiet Corner said...

You had me at the B & W!...:)JP

Julia said...

I'm so hungry for green grass color that although I love the sepia color, the third photo is my favorite.
Hugs,
JB

Abraham Lincoln said...

I like the scene itself--the last one.

Brk Trt said...

although they are the same, each brings different thoughts to mind.
nicely done.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I really like these. I think the first one is my favorite.

Leovi said...

I love this beautiful composition , excellent in the first B & W !

Mama Zen said...

Simply gorgeous!

EG CameraGirl said...

I think B&W suits this photo but I also like the fourth photo which gives the rolled barbed wire a sense of place, but hey! I also like the second and third photos. ;)

MarkD60 said...

amazing how different each photo looks.

Beth said...

Each photo looks different. Very nicely done!

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful Gate post, love it.

Debbie said...

WoW...all four are gorgeous!!

This is Belgium said...

gorgeous shots
impossible to decide which one should be top of the list

Patty Woodland said...

I love the first one...just seems to say so much

Margie said...

I like it best in black and white.

Raggedy Creations said...

love it, specially the black and white one.

Sylvia K said...

Terrific as always!! Love the B&W!!

Linda said...

Nice scene! I can't decide whether I like the first or third image the best.

Gail Dixon said...

What a neat idea to take the same scene and show it three different ways. I love the sepia one. Reminds me of the Old West. Nice!

Gordon said...

They look really cool, I like.
All the best, Gordon.

Small City Scenes said...

A great rural scene. Love 'em all. But the barb wire adds to the western look.

BTW: On my http://dayplus4.blogspot.com/
blog I think the hawk I caught is a Sharp Shinned---could you confirm? Please? MB

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

These are all lovely, but 3 is my favorite. You have captured a simple but beautiful shot of Texas.

Izabela Majkut said...

one photo, so many effects :) beuaty. I like all of them :)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

You could have stopped with the first one for it is a winner. Thinking you might be playing with the phone for these pictures, there are quite a few FREE camera apps out there with lots of interesting and fun edits available. I've narrowed the field down to just two now - Camera+ and Snapseed. Oh, there's also Vintage Black & White which does just that. But then, you might already know of these for you are always several steps (or city blocks) ahead of me with things.

Furry Bottoms said...

The third was my favorite format :) Its cool to play with all kinds to see which one reflects the mood best.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tex Love the 1st and last shot best.

Birdman said...

I'm going for 'door' #1. Got a great western feel.

Karen S. said...

Simply beautiful!

Jeevan said...

Wonderful frames on fence! Great compos

Nancy's Notes said...

Simple and yet, oh so beautiful.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

The first one is my favorite! So pretty :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I vote for No. 3!

S. J. Qualls said...

I like the last one. :)

DIMI said...

I like the B/W!Its my favorite!Nice effect!!
Dimi...

Sketchbook Wandering said...

Very cool designs & silhouettes...nothing we'd ever see up here...

Jo's World said...

Hi Tex!

My favorite is the sepia toned one (the second I think) and the fuller scene on the last photo (color).

Can you get these colorations on one camera?
From B&W to sepia to color?
I am a real rookie when it comes to cameras but this is wonderful.

Jo

Giga said...

Trzecie w naturalnych kolorach, to dla mnie najmilszy widok. Pozdrawiam.
Third in natural colors, for me the nicest view. Yours.

Lindsjö taxar said...

Nice and Clean shot!
Great!

Marit Sønstebø said...

I enjoyed them all! :-)

RedPat said...

I like the 3rd one too! ;-)

Farm Girl said...

All of them are fantastic. I like Simply Texas.

David Oliver said...

They are all very good, I like the black and white best. I have seen the spare barbed wire on the post in photos for many years, I have never found this on my own.

Nancy J said...

All are lovely, but my favourite by far, the last one with a tree, gate and roll of wire, maybe waiting for someone to come along and do some fence repairs. I think it tells a story right there, Lovely sepia tones too, Cheers. Jean

Evelyn S. said...

I love fences, particularly those with gates! I believe my favorite is the last image.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

These pictures show simple beauty.

Barb said...

I like all the different perspectives. I especially like the barbed wire lariat.

Candy C. said...

A lovely Texas scene and it works well with the sepia! :)

amanda | wildly simple said...

It's coming up on a year since we were in TX.. my husband has just started talking about when we're going to plan on going back!
Your photos lend warm thoughts of wide open spaces while we find ourselves in blizzard conditions again. All basketball canceled for the night.. looks like we'll have a nice snug evening together while the snow globe dances outside our windows!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Beautiful photos, but my favorite is the 4ª.

Deb said...

love them all...each for a different reason...

eileeninmd said...

I like them all too, but the third one is my favorite.

DeniseinVA said...

Lovely scene and I like all the different effects.

A handy roll of barbed wire. Interesting what happens with the different techniques.

Lynda said...

I like when you post fences. It's interesting to see the different ones in your area.

Gorgeous! My favorites are the third and fourth. What a beautiful day!

Stephanie said...

Cool effects on all of them. Is the Friday's Fences still going?

KB Bear said...

I'm not usually a huge fan of B and W but I love the first version the most!

The Queen Jester said...

Sometimes the simplest subjects make the best photos. Very nice, although I found myself humming "don't fence me in" while viewing the photos.

Sally said...

I love simple, and these are great! :)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

It's hard to pick a favorite, but the first one, I think looks like it belongs on the front of a card, like so many of your other photos do.

Randy said...

I like the first color one best.

Rachit Aggarwal said...

All the pictures are really beautiful. The colors in them invoke kind of nostalgia..

Karen said...

Cool, it almost looks like snow in the b&w shot!

Paul said...

Perfect subject matter to experiment with! Amazing all the different effects you can do to a picture these days...

SquirrelQueen said...

Simple photos are always the best and can tell a story without a single word. No favorite, I like them all.

weekend et coup de brosse said...

Un sujet simple comme tu le dis mais c'est une superbe prise de vue!
Have a nice week-end!
Cath.

Made by KKann said...

Wow - nice shot - I like the first one - black/white!!

Have a wonderful Friday!

HugsKKann

Midmarsh John said...

Great the way different tints give different moods to the same photo. I like the sepia one. Seem to suit the subject.

Elaine said...

Very nice!

Mike Biles said...

Lovely photos - as usual! Gives a whole different perspective, like standing at different ends of the same room. Thanks for your comments on A Bit About Britain - I'm afraid I'm getting a bit behind reciprocating!

Anvilcloud said...

I find myself on a bit of a b&w kick, with no sepia toning, so I like the first one best.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa;
Oh, the scene has different faces with the different coloring or toning.
I would love to try these things (follow suit)someday :-)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

Betty Manousos said...

Busy Bee Suz said...

Love them all…but the intense colored one made me want to hop on a plane! ;)

Marie said...

Just the perfect country scene. Really love the different views!

Rita said...

The things you can do with photos! All I know how to do is point and shoot--LOL!

Fjällripan said...

Beautiful! My favorite is the third, but I also found it very nice with the Sepiaeffect :))

Pantherka said...

Amazing, beautiful and fantastic.

barbara l. hale said...
