My wife and I were driving through Oregon wine country when I noticed this dilapidated barn just off the road and couldn't resist pulling over for a quick shot. I didn't have a chance to linger or explore more interesting compositions, but thought I'd share the one shot I came away with. Thanks for looking, as always.

I like.
Strong and striking B&W conversion well suited to this scene.
Good dramatic cloud cover too,
Well done.

the pp is a bit much. there's a highly visible halo around the rooftop/sides and there is banding in the clouds.

Thanks, Ash. Your C&C is always appreciated. So good to be seeing you on the forums more often these days. I trust all is well.

Thanks for the constructive criticism, Xhanatos. I agree that the pp is heavy-handed, and perhaps distracting to some for the issues mentioned. I may take another crack at it sometime down the road.

other than the banding and the halo, the conversion is perfect. love the contrasty sharp image!

curious, what software do you use? i normally get the banding/halo if i push the fill light and highlight recovery in lightroom.

Great shot and use of B&W. Thanks for posting this, as I feel inspired to try a few B&W conversions after seeing this quality and style.

Thanks, Xhanatos. Right now I'm simply editing out of camera jpegs using GIMP. I plan to purchase some RAW editing software (and a new lens) in the next week or two, however. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the kind words, Kevin. Glad you're feeling inspired to do some conversions of your own. I'd love to see how they turn out!
