old farm buildings
Posted By: Nels, 08-01-2007, 12:49 PM

I was visiting my home state of North Dakota this July and decided to drive around the surrounding area of Sykeston, where I grew up. I do not expect these are technically great photos just some memories. I am happy to receive c&c though and look forward to improving technique. Special thanks to Pornflakes tutorial. Here goes a try.

sorry

I obviously missed a step to something in Pornflakes instructions. I will do better.

Hi Nels,
Thanks for posting, I like the old sheds and houses, always makes me wonder about the people that built them, along with their hopes and dreams.
Would you mind if others posted shots in your thread in keeping with your theme?
Cheers
Grant

Hello Grant,
Thanks for the response. Sounds like a great idea for others to post other old buildings. I too like to think about what the former owners/occupants experienced, what times were like for them.

I like no.2. It has a real feeling of loneliness about it, nicely composed. May be some more close up shots of the decaying matter would have been good.

Hi Nels,
sorry for the delay....computer gremlin.
Took this one somewhere in Idaho near Hells Canyon, I think from the road between Lewiston & Halfway (Rattlesnake Hwy ??).
What a view they had.

Nice shots Tim. I like the compositions in 3 and 4 best. 5 doesn't seem to be displaying. What lens did you use for the shots? As everyone says you can't help but wonder about the lives the owners lived. Nice shot of the house in Idaho Grant. I'd have been inclined though to shift tha angle a little to put the subject off centre. Just my own thoughts.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for looking and commenting. The shot has been heavily cropped to remove a lot of rubbish, overhead power lines etc.
And I told a lie....the shot was taken on the Oregon side, not the Idaho side, of Hells Canyon. Sorry.
Cheers
Grant

Thanks Channeler and Arpe for taking the time to comment. The lense I used was the FA 80-320 4.5-4.6. on photos 1 and 2 and the DA 18-55 on the others. I cloned out some blacktop highway on photo #4. Grant, nice shot. Seems we both shoot from the roads/highways. I have been camping at the lake with my wife and kids this past weekend, so I too am sorry for the delayed response.
