...."Dorothy's Barn - VII"....
Grand Finale of the series - I was amazed that the quickly rising sun had such a impact on the face of the old barn, which is almost totally grey and weathered. The rising sun pickup what red paint that was left and the camera really showed it off.
This taken just minutes after the ...."Dorothy's Barn - VI"...., last weeks post that is within my gallery.
I was ask a few weeks ago if Dorothy every dreamed her barn would be on the Internet and accepted so well. I am not sure either Dorothy or I knew the barn would be accepted so very well and we thank all who have commented on this series.
The first time I stopped and ask Dorothy's if I could take pictures of her barn she smiled and said yes - because of all the pictures that have been taken of it you are the first to every ask permission. I told her that I would give her copies of any pictures that I ended up using, she said that would not be necessary and to have fun. After about the 3rd trip over to her place - she came out and was talking to my wife and said why did he do that and why would he want a picture like that. My wife said she was not sure - but - we will wait and see how they come out. The next trip Dorothy came out and told my wife that she thought she might be interested in seeing the images that I decided to use. So we made her a display of them. Even now she calls once in a while and tells us how much see enjoys ...."Dorothy's Barn".... on your living room wall.
Many thanks, to our neighbor, Dorothy, for letting me do this series on her property.
Thanks, so much, to everyone for looking in to my gallery and special thanks to all who leave thoughts, ideas and comments - Larry

I love this one! The lighting brings out such lovely colors on the wood. Very nice composition and detail. TFS

If the barn looks grey and weathered it certaily got a nice tan from the sunrise.
The warm redbrown colours and the textures of the wood are wonderful and together with the red horizon create a nice atmosphere.
After this grand finale, we wonder what else can be found on Dorothy's domain.
Best regards from Belgium,

I am a fan of old barns, and you found an awesome one here. And I like the story about Dorothy too. Great light, but what does the rest of the barn look like? thanks for sharing this one. Gerald

What beautiful colour from the rising sun. A fitting end to your series.
danos (97885) 2009-05-27 8:34
the most beautiful colours of the series of Dorothy's Barn,with the warm light of the sunrise to make it so different from the other ones.The colour tints of the sky are really great.Well done.
ChrisJ (114095) 2009-05-27 14:27
Good warm cold color contrasts between the red barn/ orange sky, & blue sky, with excellent sharpness, & saturation. Well composed, using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

As for the barne itself, this is one of the best shot that I can actually see the details and texture of the wood, rather than just a silhouette or close up. One more shot of the whole thing this series is nearly completed. thanks for all the efforts.
penny12 (132) 2009-05-28 2:15
I saw your previous posting and it is equally beautiful as this one. The warm colour of the wood is enhanced by the lightning. Well captured!
asajernigan (21427) 2009-05-28 3:41
This is a well composed shot of this old barn. The sunrise lighting is fine and brings out nice warm colors in the shot. The lighting is fine and the photo has nice sharpness and detail.
gildasjan (43608) 2009-05-28 9:27
Ces vieilles granges ont toujours un intérêt pour la photographe et photographier celle-ci devant un tel dégradé du ciel,ce n'est que du plaisir pour nos yeux.
npecanhuk (75476) 2009-05-28 10:01
The beauty of loneliness and vastness!
The old barn - once more so wonderfully portraited by you - with those warm colors caused by the lights of the rising sun - is cleverly contrasted with the empty plains in the background!
Very suitable sharpness, correct exposure, very well chosen pov and superb composition are outstanding features in this image!
TFS - congratulations!
My warmest regards!

Larry, this one works for me, the sunlight makes all the difference and it really warms it up. I love the part about the owner not understanding what you were shooting, how often this is the case that those closest don't see the beauty in something. Good work.
buscape (6219) 2009-05-28 18:21
great final of this beautiful series. I love the wonderful light on the barn and the lovely sky in the background. Wonderful composition of this final shot. Thanks for this beauty.

bien meilleure composition que la précédente, on voit mieux la ferme et la texture des bois, un joli lever de soleil qui promet une belle journée.
ktanska (27686) 2009-05-29 1:32
First rays of the rising sun look perfect on that barn. Andas the light comes from the side it emphasizes the texture well. Excellent peaceful feeling.
cunejo200 (7281) 2009-05-29 3:46
Ohhh lala Larry,
This is mighty fine. Gorgeous colors and exposure. I am full of praises with your compositional eyes. My best regards.
josepmarin (58357) 2009-05-29 9:15
A grand final to this series of Dorothy's barn. The luminosity of the first rays of the sunrise and its warm tones on the wood, works very well and creates a beautiful aesthetic effect in the composition.
tnahari (207) 2009-05-29 12:52
fantastic light was captured on this old barn, emphasizing the beautiful colors and texture.

What an amazing light you caught here. Great shot. Nice work.
gunbud (34066) 2009-06-06 18:35
Dorthy's old barn looks quite elegant in this this warm late day light.
All its beautiful lines an scares standout brilliantly in this exquisite light.
pablominto (53746) 2009-06-07 22:59
A strong minimalist feeling to this one, a mood that is enhanced by the vast plains in the back where absolutely nothing seems to happen!
Wonderful warm sunset (sunrise?) colours work against the impression of decay...
I can see details in the architecture telling that this barn once was somebody's pride..!

belle photo de ce superbe coucher de soleil a l' horizon, en avant plan cette magnifique grange qui semble touchée par les rayons solaires.
Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté.
