Barn wood a plenty

By waltknox
This is the kind of wood I would love to frame prints with this summer . Just need to get to know a farmer or rancher I can source some from . For this shot I tried another setting on my Olympus called partial colour.
Some folks don't like the art settings for various reasons - still good fun to experiment with even if it might not be to everyone's taste . The gold highlights were a surprise once I saw it on the big screen at home.
Very pleased with the response to yesterdays upload , I have to say special thanks to John, Mike, Joline, Fred and Bernie for their cherished awards.

I like the look of the wood too Walt. I like the filter you used for this image too. Looks very good.

Partial color works well with the wooden structures Walt & that fabulous old wood,would indeed look great framing images. I'm not to keen on how it worked on the sky,but that's just my thinking. A solid composition & that old wagon looks good in this scene.

I think the effect works well in this case, Walt. The old, weathered wood exudes an appealing warmth against the cold of the snow and bleak sky.

The partial colour setting has worked well, Walt.
A fine capture of these wonderful old barns.

I think that has worked well, on a very good image in the first place.
It works perfectly Walt, the dark wood aginst the snow are a super contrast. The gold highlights are a lovely bonus. Pam
Fabulous image, beautiful scene great capture, Walt.
