Brockville Farm

Old Barn - Brockville, OntarioA rusty wheel from an ancient farm implement guards the door of a long-unused barn in Brockville, Ontario.

Taken last week while visiting my wife's cousins in rural Brockville, an area full of beautiful farms south of Ottawa.

For this photo, before snapping the exposure, I envisioned that the textures, shapes, and shadows suggested a black-and-white treatment. Shot with a Canon Digital Rebel and Canon EF-S 18-55mm zoom. Back in the electronic darkroom, I applied a gradient mask in photoshop to produce the B&W version.

The small photo at right doesn't quite show off the texture, so be sure to click on it to see the larger version

You're right - the texture is fantastic! It makes the photo almost look 3-dimensional.
