Same Spot Different Day

by Kevin Wenning February. 16, 2019 145 views

This is the same grain elevator I posted last week with the coffee look treatment. I've actually been out here a dozen times trying to get a great sunset and it's just never happened. There's also a bunch of new construction right behind it and there was a big crane dominating the skyline for a few months. Having the crane in there I thought ruined the shot. So one afternoon when it was obvious that there would be no clouds for a colorful sunset, I gave my sunstar trick a go. I wish I had a better lens so it was cleaner but it worked out as well as I could have hoped I think.

It is a breath taking shot. It must have been a hard job to find a good spot in the thick grass field. You did a good job not to loose the detail of the wall. I love it.

Thanks Ho. Most of the year the field next to the property is very overgrown. They mow it down ever few months so I picked that time to go out. They leave the grass long around the barn though; go figure.

Such a different feeling from the first photo! The sunstar really makes this one.

Yeah our landscapes and feeling of the territory changes a lot here with the seasons. In the summer the fields are all green and growing and colorful, and after harvest everything changes. It makes for good variety. I just need to get out and shoot more often.

Nice one. I would take out the cable on the righthand side ( thats personal taste) and try to get some detail in the foreground ,just a bit. Overall i like it.

Good feedback. Those are both editing choices on my part. I'd actually like to go back and shoot this with a sharper lens. My wide angle is very soft around the edges. I edited it with a good bit of Orton and dropped the clarity which is just personal flavor in my editing. The powerline I left in because I was shooting it originally for a historical society and for the owner of the property so I couldn't take liberties editing out things. I have other images that they used so for an artistic image, it definitely could do without that powerline.
