A Part of America


This was a great challange, You would not believe how many red things I found in my town.. the nice thing about where I live is if you drive 5 minutes out of town you are in the country and our little piece of Heaven is dotted with Red Barns, a staple in American History. I added the Lovely and Etheral action and a little burn around the edges.

Teri, this is GORGEOUS. I love the action you ran to make it look really vintage. Excellent job!

I also love the view you chose to capture as your image. Love the old fence in front of the barn... just love the whole thing!

i love old barns, especially red ones. This is a great "old Time" looking picture. Great job. I swear your pictures get better and better every week.

Old barns are incredibly interesting. I like the fence in the foreground too.

I love barns they always make good pictures and I agree with Holly on the old time look!

Very Currier and Ives! I really like it. The soft edges and lighting almost make it look Christmasy, with snow even. Truly a classic photograph. Well done.

Looks like a painting on the wall,...very good., I love the simplicity of it all.
