A place for contemplating
----
The same barn that I posted yesterday, but from a different perspective.
---
This is one of the people on the tour. We saw him at several of the six barns we visited, engaged in this contemplative actvity at each stop.
----
I had two versions of this photo. Just as I snapped this one, he turned his head to look at me. I did not want that shot. But the other one, with him looking away, was a better composition. So I swapped his head. Seems sort of ghoulish, but I think it worked.

Excellent perspective, lighting and mood, Michelle. I never would have known you swapped heads if you hadn't mentioned it. Not ghoulish at all!

If you can work it into your schedule I would like you to swap my head and give me a better look. I enjoy how you did this and understand the mood you were trying to keep for the picture. You did one amazing job with that. The whole setting is beautiful and to see him contemplating adds to the look. Gorgeous colors. I also enjoy the lighting my friend.
Have a wonderful day Michelle.

Great comp and scale, Michelle! It would be ghoulish (and kind of cool) if you rotated his head 180 degrees. Looks totally natural as is.

"So I swapped his head" - OMG, Michelle. I hope you don't get arrested for doing such a horrible thing. HAHAHAHAHAHAH!
If you hadn't said it I would never have noticed :)
But I did notice this truly wonderful image.
It reminds me of the days when people actually had time to sit and think about life - or just sit and be present!
The image is beautifully composed, colored and everything else.

Beautiful and looks so serene and peaceful. Excellent job of swapping heads, although I am not sure how serene that would be. :-)
