Abandoned Barn 2

 Easterly end of abandoned barn in colour

This is the other end of the log barn I posted on Monday HERE   It was a very bright day when I took this photo and - looking in this direction - the weathered wood looks a bit "washed out." We were just traveling through so I didn't want to wait for less harsh light. When I darkened it a bit, the wood took on a bluish cast, which wasn't at all what I had seen with my naked eye...

so I decided to see what this end of the barn looked like in B&W.

And this is what the other end of the barn looked like in B&W. The colour version is HERE .

Sometimes these kinds of subjects look "better" in b&w. As does this one. Nice work!

A great old barn, I love weathered wood. It does look nice in B&W! Have a happy day!

Kathy said...

This old barn was a good candidate for the black and white treatment.

Interesting structure whether rendered in color or b/w.

I think I prefer the color on this one.

I think the black and white shows the details best. You know I really like black and white photos though.

Love that!

Sandra said...

I like both the black and white, 1 an 2 and also like the blue cast. the light sure changes the look of colors.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I think that these old barns are perfect for the black and white treatment EG, gives them a new lease of life in a way.

Judy said...

The B&W did the trick for this shot.

William Kendall said...

Black and white is ideal for the shot. A stiff breeze and that's the end of this.

TexWisGirl said...

really really like the b&w.

Like the black and white. Even sadder looking. Looks like the "old west".

So ghostly.
Well composed pics.

Gillian Olson said...

That is a fascinating old building in colour and in black and white, would be a great subject for a painting.

Nicola SeaThreePeeO Carpenter said...

Wonderful pictures, there is real beauty in decay.

Taken For Granted said...

Sad to see this fine log building falling to ruin, but your photos, both color and b&w, and excellent.

Debbie said...

I'll bet it was beautiful, back in the day!! I like the b&w!!

Halcyon said...

Although it's crumbling, there is a certain beauty to it!

José Mendonça said...

It looks great either way!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Poor old beauty! The two front walls with windows look like they will be the last part to fall down

RedPat said...

The B&W works really well but I still like the colour version the best, EG!

Ruth Hiebert said...

The black and white works very well for this barn.

VP said...

I am usually a color guy, but this time I have to admit that b&w is somewhat stronger...

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Fab pictures so right in b&w. I love the western end of the barn...

Black and White is always an alternative option, and often it looks much better!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Wonderful weathered textures in this beautiful old barn. I do like the black and white versions.

Margaret Adamson said...

Oh dear! What a pity however a wonderful photo opportunity.

abrianna said...

Great black and whites. These bring out the age and the texture and lines of the woods.

cieldequimper said...

I love the black and white!!!

Jack said...

This is a case in which the black and white really does work better.

Kay said...

The black & white did the trick. It's hard sometimes to see such a great subject and be stuck with light that's less than perfect.
