Barn au Natural

Same Barn, Different Look

Same Barn, Different Look

I started comparing the photo of this barn with the one in my last post, and I think I like the faded tones of the barn in its natural state better than the one I did in sepia. Evokes a different feeling, but I like the reds balancing the composition. Having a hard time deciding, so I guess I will hang out with both of them.

    You know Bo I really liked the sepia version… but now seeing this… I think I prefer this one. The red is gorgeous.

  2. I agree with you. I like the well balanced colors. Nice!

  3. Something about the reds in winter that is very appealing. On the other hand – the monochromatic sepia has a soothing effect.

  4. this version highlights the shading & really sharpens the viewer’s focus. Very nice.

  5. I like these faded colors very much, and I do like this one better.

  6. I agree that the colors lend a bit more depth.
