Charming Barns!

My Barn Charm entries this week were more moving shots... on a back country road with more traffic than I expected, so after two tries, I just set the camera to sport shooting and hoped for the best!  This first one had some kind of conveyor belt outside, so I am not sure what that would have been used for...but it was a nicely maintained farm.


 I tried sepia tone on this one because the light was so bright, the shot was washed out.


Here is the original...which one do you like better?

Would that be some sort of 'grain' chute do you think Linda, well done on the 'drive by' shooting. I think I like the sepia shot, only because it gives it that 'timeless' look.

I had a heckuva time trying to figure out how to access your blog today what with the google+ interface. It only took me four attempts. LOL

Love the barn images...but since you asked, I love the 'original' better.

Hope you have a glorious day.

hmmmm i think i like the original better....i never thought of using the sports setting when doing drive-bys, turned out good!

Although the sepia suits that picture, I like the original too!
Yes, I seem to take a lot of drive-by barn photos as well.

Hi Linda! I think I like the original :) That barn has a face! Love the fence. The first barn has an awesome roof and I love the red paint with the white trim! Had to laugh when you said you put the camera on sport shoot, made me think we were hunting barns which we are :)

Nice barns...good idea using the sports setting on the drive bys!

i like 'em all. that's a hay elevator to move hay bales up into the mow. :)

They're both beautiful barns! I love the shape & different angles of both! I like both versions of the 2nd barn, can't choose which one I like best!

Thanks for joining =)

it is interesting to see these two - both of very similar design, but with the top one much lower in height than the more usual bottom example.

Rose said...

For me the sepia sure did the trick for the one shot, though the original was not bad.

Mari said...

These are both wonderful barns! I think I like the original shot best - like that red color!

Interesting that the first barn has some weird angles with the roof line. I like the regular photo of the second barn.

These are great shots, I think the original is my favorite. It's a beautiful barn! The elevator would be used to take hay bales up to the upper part of the barn, the hay loft. They would have to be the smaller bales, not the big round bales seen so often now!

Love the first barn, Linda! I've never seen one shaped quite like that. Your original photo of the second barn is beautiful. I like both versions.

That first barn is very unique and for a drive-by, it looks great! I like the original red of the second set- but I am just a big fan of red barns! Great shots.

Love the first one especially with the crossbucks -- but all are wonderful. ;)

Love both barns.....first one with all that white trim - very nice....and I like the "original" coloring on the second barn...sepia is nice for a change but there's something about a RED barn!!

I know all about those busy road shots. lol Sometimes I spot a barn and decide I need to go back with an assistant (hubby). lol

Great barns. :-)

I like both of the latter, but prefer the original. I'm generally a purist. ;-)
