Light in the Barn

By chase
There is just across the road from me a beautiful old barn which has almost collapsed. As there are high winds forecast for the weekend I thought I would see if i could get in and take a few frames before it completely bit the dust.
Looks as though it was used for beast and chickens.
It's full of bird poop, dust, debris and some huge spiders' webs...I wore a mask, just in case.

I took along a couple of props, one being this red lamp, the other thing is some sort of metal pipe thing that was laying around.
Nothing as you can imagine was flat, straight or without cobwebs but there is some beautiful old stuff in there, piles of old roofing slate and terracotta floor tiles...I had a beano !!

Lit by available daylight and of course the candle.
5 frame HDR merged in Lightroom, finished with a straighten (as much as I could),crop and levels in Photo shop.

Thanks for dropping by, there will be others from here Wink

Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Your lamp complete with candle is amazing in the old barn.
Must remember to use candles if I try some night still life.

It was just dark in there Kate and I wanted some light on the wooden 'wall' behind.
I always find candles hard to get right, so very easy to over expose the flame Sad
