    Quote:Looks like a touch of HDR, the colour is so rich, yet Pentax can do that. I may seem confused but this is one hell of a good image. TG

    Thanks again Tony. You are correct about the HDR. I usually shoot in RAW so the Pentax HDR option isn't there but I do use the option to shoot five images of varying exposure. These are then assembled and worked in Photomatix software.

    Thanks for your comments on my portfolio!
    There's a story for this location. At one point, this what what we would call a hobby farm where an Executive raised prize cattle as a hobby so money and infrastructure appeared to be no object...I guess in hindsight, he did work for a meat packer. Anyway, when he left this world, he bequeathed his agricultural holdings to the local conservation authority. I don't think they really know what to do with it except let people go there to walk. The one thing they do is paint all of the foundations and outbuildings (nothing open for the public) with a stark white-wash yet they leave the barn boards as original. Probably only budgeted for one colour lol. With the damp, dull day, the barn boards looked really stark against the orange leaves so I was thankful for the lack of paint. Small note, the Pacino movie "The Recruit" shot the farm scenes here.

    Thanks David. It was kind of a raw day...we were out very early. We don't need to call the military as of yet, since last week, most of our snow has now melted and it was supposedly 12 degrees here today. All the seasons on one week! Thanks again for looking and the comments. Your portfolio is very nice! Al

  • Unique portfolio, interesting perspective...there's something about the drama of B&W that you've exercised superbly. Al

    Great colours and saturation (subjects are well chosen also)! Al
