Red Barn near Latah WA

HDR or High Dynamic Range enhances an image of  a red barn in the Palouse.
:   :   :

Remember last week, I was sort of kidding (ha, you didn’t take me seriously did you??)

about a parade of red barns, well no surprise, here’s another one from the Palouse.

This one from along Highway 27 near the town of Latah.

Except this week, you get a bonus, an old farm truck in the foreground.

I don’t often heavily process images, but this barn seemed to ‘want’ an HDR treatment,and so it is.

I will tweak contrast, exposure, white balance in Camera Raw, but that’s about it.

What about you,

do you post process your images a lot,

a little,

not at all?

    this looks great in hdr! i never used to mess with my pics but then i found picnik and had so much fun messing with them that i can’t seem to control myself anymore lol

  • Janis says:

    This looks amazing…. I process most all of my pics..I use picmonkey (the new picnik) very user friendly!

  • Michael says:

    Madge, I can barely keep up with my blog let alone anyone elses, & everytime I come here for a visit I have so many wonderful pictures to catch up on! Very nice a usual, good job!

  • Nancy says:

    I love hdr — I just have to keep myself from going all out on my photos! Great capture and editing, Madge. 🙂

  • I find most “HDR” pics have been overdone, but you seem to have a light touch – this one I like. I very seldom do anything to my shots except adjust light levels or sharpness. And what some people do with picnik and Topaz is a crime, IMO.

  • Tricia says:

    Whoa, what a beauty! Love the barn, the scene, the truck, the sky… it’s all very beautiful!

    I have to tweak my pics somewhat, otherwise, nobody would want to look at them! Heheheee

    Thanks a ton for joining, Madge! =)

  • MadSnapper says:

    i tweak and play a LOT but none of them come out as beautiful as yours. i like HDR on this and on most photos. i say whatever floats our boat

  • Laura says:

    Great old barn and I love that truck. Beautiful image and post-processing!

  • JoAnn says:

    I sometimes will do auto color correction – it makes the skies bluer and the greens greener – but never anything else. If it doesn’t improve the photo then I leave it like it was. Fortunately my camera gives good color definition. Love the Palouse barns.

  • Lynette says:

    Madge, what perspective, what subjects, what an image. I adore your barn photos horizontally, vertically, and diagonally!

  • What a piece of history you have captured Madge- lovely. I sometimes use the auto colour which makes the photos in my view more like they actually were when I took them (I just use a basic Coolpix canera). Sometimes I go for special effects if I have time or inclination, or if I want to illustrate a point, or if I have text that I want to use and need the photo to be up to showability standards!.

  • Lynn Wood says:

    I usually don’t like photos that look like they have been all “tricked out”. This one is perfect! It looks like it just “happened” that way. I love your photos!
