Wow, what a capture! Love that car and like the scene outdoors framed by the doorway! Some of those old cars like that are worth over a $1,000,000. #8795576

Thanks for sharing. #8796711

Brett Dolsen 7/31/2010 1:44:38 AM

Great POV,composition,lighting and scene Michelle!Definately would have been turbulent times there in 1785!! #8796721

Howard B. Cheek 7/31/2010 4:00:50 AM

I looked at your last three posts Michelle..And there's a RED ferarri sandwiched there. I had no choice ;-)
What an interesting footnote to your fabulous pic. In my dreams :)
Well done!! #8796829

Murry Grigsby 7/31/2010 5:25:59 AM

A barn full of wild horses :0) Great series of photos and info!! #8796892

Rona L. Schwarz 7/31/2010 9:35:18 PM

As soon as I saw the gleaming red car...I knew this must be another barn image, Michelle! What a perfect place to keep a retired race car :) Great treatment here, terrific details and lighting inside and outside, yet smooth like velvet! Just wonderful! #8798153

Robert K. Bemus level-classic 8/1/2010 12:46:47 AM

I don't suppose they'd rent that car?? Awesome find, capture and effects, Michelle!!! #8798244

Laura E. Swan level-classic 8/1/2010 10:31:38 PM

Boy...this proves a person just never knows what treasures lay in old barns!

Wonderful reporting as always, Michelle. I'd have loved to have heard that motor starting up! WOW!


P.S. Love the BG scene and treatment too! 2nd photo was a nice bonus! Thanks! #8800497

Randy D. Dinkins level-classic 8/2/2010 6:18:28 PM

Fabulous surprise and capture Michelle :) #8815977

Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic 8/11/2010 3:13:20 AM

Wow, Michelle - what a gorgeous classic car...and it's hidden away in just a fabulous old barn, too!! I agree with Kate J, "if I was that Ferrari I would back in so I could look at the wonderful view"!! :o)

They REALLY built barns (well, this one at least!) to last in the 1700's, didn't they?!! I LOVE the stonework here...and the light, textures, details, tones and composition all are exceptional, too!! :o) #8819590

I saw this on page#4 of the Finalists page then I saw your other finalist images and they are all deserving worthy to move into the next round and hopefully you get one of the golds, Michelle,

IMHO, what made this photo was your ability to bring out correct illumination of the barn interior and at the same time show details in the fields on top of your creativity of illustrating a vintage car in an unusual environment. Such great image!

Congratulations, Michelle! #8827962

Centre Hill Farm, in New Hope, Pennsylvania, was #4 on the Audubon Bucks County Barns of Distinction Tour this summer.
This barn featured a shining surprise...so shining that I could not photograph it properly with the light streaming in from the top of the door. But I felt obliged to show it to you.
The 1955 Ferarri is one of a collection of the Farm's owner. The docent at this barn explained that this retired race car is valued higher than the entire estate!
On the outside of the barn, and scratched in several places inside, is the date 1785, and the original owner's initials, MP, for Moses Paxson. This is the oldest known date stone on any barn in Bucks County.
