This was taken with my G10 while out bicycling. The effect was created with Silver Efex Pro.

I cried many a tear on January 20, tears of joy, tears of hope, tears of gratitude.

I love these tones, this composition. A lovely weathered old image in modern day.

21 Jan 2009 5:52am

@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon. It's amazing what changing the tonalities can do for an image.

Toni from Eastern Washington, United States

This is really a beautiful image, Jack. I love the processing you did. I was right there with you, fighting back tears all day long, since I was at work. I let them flow when I got home - my dogs didn't care. =)

@Toni: I have never experienced anything quite like this day, Toni.

exquisite My shot of the day. It seems to have been a great day for Americans and I hope for our world as a whole

A beautifully timeless shot, detailed and striking. Like stepping back into the glorious past whilst we look forward to a glorious future under the new leadership

marianne from France

quelle athmosphère, c'est magnifique !!!
je pense que ce sont des silos à grain, mais de quelle céréale s'agit il ?
beaucoup de douceur dans le traitement, j'aime beaucoup !

21 Jan 2009 12:02pm

@marianne: Marianne, I think that it is a grain elevator, but I am not certain.

Polydactyle from Montreal, Canada

Excellent old atmosphere here! I like your vignettage, verry effective!

Brilliant shot. Looks very classic and very nostalgic.

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

C'est magnifiquement traité, c'est comme un retour en arrière, une vue sur une sorte d'endroit deshumanisé, le sépia lui va bien ta photo parle d'hier., super.

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

a beautiful serene image and the choice of treatment works so well.
I'm from Canada and was glued to the TV to watch the inauguration -- as were so many other Canadians.

21 Jan 2009 3:41pm

@Diane Schuller: Diane, Hopefully Obama will help bring some of the civility that you have in Canada to the US. We used to live in Sequim, WA, and could see Victoria from our house. We loved to visit Canada, primarily because of your people.

Steve Rice from United States

Nice barn. Love the treatment.

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

Love the all white sky and the sepia tone.
Barack Hussein Obama; an international citizen loved by many. Congratulations on your new leader Jack!

21 Jan 2009 4:07pm

@Shirin Moosavi: It was a grey overcast day.

Suzanne from Huntington Bch, California, United States

A perfectly lovely, nostalgic shot and you've added to the effect with the processing. Reminds me some photos in a very old family from some of my ancestors.

21 Jan 2009 5:23pm

@Suzanne: Thanks, Suzanne. The barn, etc, were very interesting, but the light was super poor; so it really needed a little something.

Pradeep from Chennai, India

Lovely work, the processing really works...timeless :)

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

Love, Love, Love this one. It has a great nostalgia about it.

21 Jan 2009 9:25pm

@Laurie: Thank you, Laurie. When I'm using my G10, I don't even think about a D700; which is interesting since noise in ISO above 400 (and even at 400) is one of the few shortcomings of a G10.

Paula Camps from Mahón (Menorca), Spain

Nice photo

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Fantastic shot, I am sure the world over there were many tears of happiness yesterday

Barbara from Florida, United States

This is outstanding. Love the composition and tone. The soft fade around the edges really give this an old time feel.
All day I have felt like the world has transformed itself in 24 hours. People woke up different today. Still in awe.

22 Jan 2009 3:07am

@Barbara: Thank you, Barbara.

About waking up today, Absolutely!!

Bhavvish from Dallas, United States

Nice tone. It as thought it pulls you through a flashback swirl.

amy from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

The nostalgic/vintage look is really the perfect choice for this, Jack! Excellent image! And it's a grain/feed hopper... a grain elevator is a huge building (usually red)... actually, they're the buildings in my prairie memories images.

22 Jan 2009 4:26am

@amy: Right; I knew that what I said was wrong, but I didn't have the right word. Thanks for helping us all out.

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Beautifully toned! Well done Jack!

Denise from Tehran, Iran

Toning is really Great... Nicely Captured indeed!

Anita from West Nottingham, United States

Simple with great post processing. Works really well!
The 20th was a special and emotional and hopeful day!!

Denise from Perry, United States

This is beautiful, I love taking photos of barns, did my share back last summer ( posted ?? August??). Will begin again in the spring at the farm where my sons and I work, my eldest for money, me for the emotional therapy after a difficult week and our youngest for the fun. Once sumemr comes we are there every day , keeps me in shape. I love the processing you took with this one, I belive this would house heifers in a free stall type of barn. The grain bin probably holds chopped grain and supplement.
