Tobacco Barn Light
Lens: Sigma 10-20 F4-5.6 Camera: Pentax K-x Photo Location: Sontag Va ISO: 3200

While at a Labor Day Picnic, I was asked if I wanted to check out the abandoned tobacco barn for a few photos. I think that I got a few nice shots although I had to go handheld as I didn't have a tripod. I'm thinking I'll go back to see what I can do with the right equipment.

That second shot is awesome. The light beams highlighted by the dust; I love that.

Good one Vaughan.
#2 would be great to see in rich colour.

Here you go. I'm torn between the color and b&w, they both seem to look darker after I export to Flickr.

Great composition, especially in the second! If you're handy at PP you should try to add a little bit more contrast. That would really complete the photo IMO.

These are stunning. I prefer the force of the B&W, but the muted colors are appealing in their own way, too.
