Absolutely stunning! I love the colors, and the softness. Did you use a diffuser or was the effect applied afterwards in PS? I would love to see this one hanging on my wall! Wonderful! #67563

Man this made me weak in the knees, I would give anything for a shot like this. The Barn is very well placed in the image, and the colors are just beautiful. I also like the dreamy look you have here. One outstanding image. #238218

Lori McCoy 10/18/2003 8:18:42 PM

Thank you everyone for the positive comments! The soft focus effect is from Dream Suites "Dreamy" filter. I have to confess that this photo was actually taken by me while sitting in the passenger side of my car, shot through the open drivers side window. We were stuck in traffic and if we wouldn't have been, I never would have noticed the barn way back in a field. I'm obsessed with barns and old building so anytime I see one, I have to photograph it. I wish I could say it was planned but life just works in a funny way I guess and it pays to have your camera close by at all times! #238223

Gordon J. Evans 10/19/2003 7:10:30 AM

I guess it pays to get stuck in traffic once in a while, LOL. Great shot Lori!! #238696
