Donald writes that he’s never seen a quad-silo barn before he came across this one – me neither!!

Check this out big as a barn and see several more looks at this barn in his Barns & Silos slideshow.

  1. Another disastrous and weirdified HDR photo patched together by a computer from multiple exposures into a frankenphoto that defies comprehension – I can’t wait for that craze to finally come to its gimmicky end.

    I’ve nothing against photographic experimentation – I do a lot of it myself, mostly in the darkroom – but HDR is the most overused and overabused point and click ‘technique’ in the history of photography. Would it have been a rare thing it might’ve been OK in very small doses or for special effects, but what’s going on now is as bad as if everybody were addicted to ‘star effect’ filters…

    Were the photo framed a little more carefully and NOT HDR’d to death, it might have been pleasing.

    I’d like to see modern ‘photographers’ using their noggins more and photoshop less on the question of exposure! Art isn’t the attempt to use the fanciest and latest version of photoshop!

    Or is this postnuclear radiated look destined to be the way people imagine skies forevermore?


    1. I was really trying for the disastrous and weirdified HDR photo,
      thanks for letting me know that I achieve it!

      As far as Art gos, you ether like or you don’t, so thanks for letting us know that you don’t like it.

      I also hope you feel better about your self for complaining about my Art.

      Have nice day!


  2. To each his own I guess. Personally, I like the composition. FYI, the technique used is tone mapping:

    Tone mapping is a technique used in image processing and computer graphics to map one set of colors to another in order to approximate the appearance of high dynamic range images in a medium that has a more limited dynamic range. Print-outs, CRT or LCD monitors, and projectors all have a limited dynamic range that is inadequate to reproduce the full range of light intensities present in natural scenes. Tone mapping addresses the problem of strong contrast reduction from the scene radiance to the displayable range while preserving the image details and color appearance important to appreciate the original scene content.

    For me, HDR techniques offer another way to view scenes. Many times, they provide a more “realistic” view of the scene in that they approximate the astonishing ability of the human brain to perceive scenes on multiple levels.
