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.
Excellent results and fascinating image.

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

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

@jamesy: Jamesy, Obama clearly sees all of us in this together as a global community.
Nice picture with a good sepia effect !

Nice tones and processing, well done !
21 Jan 2009 7:47am
Tres beau cette ferme qui sort de la brume, on a l'impression d'être dans une autre époque..
21 Jan 2009 8:44am
Une ferme qui a beaucoup de charme avec ce sépia! Très belle image d'un autre temps!
21 Jan 2009 8:48am
Good image with this old atmosphere. Well done!!
21 Jan 2009 9:23am

21 Jan 2009 10:40am
Nice photo, I like the process a lot
21 Jan 2009 10:59am
Great mood here, as if in a wind of dust from the Past........
21 Jan 2009 11:01am
woua beautifull vintage
21 Jan 2009 11:36am
There are some places like this one... timeless... nothing has moved... great filter too. Effective.
21 Jan 2009 11:49am
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
21 Jan 2009 11:54am
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.
Excellent old atmosphere here! I like your vignettage, verry effective!
21 Jan 2009 1:02pm
Beau traitement, beaucoup de douceur!!!
21 Jan 2009 2:00pm
I like the effect as well as the other processing.
21 Jan 2009 2:45pm
Excellent capture!! Reminds me of growing up on the farm!!
21 Jan 2009 2:55pm
Brilliant shot. Looks very classic and very nostalgic.
21 Jan 2009 3:03pm
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.
21 Jan 2009 3:17pm
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.
Nice barn. Love the treatment.
21 Jan 2009 3:59pm
Love the all white sky and the sepia tone.
Barack Hussein Obama; an international citizen loved by many. Congratulations on your new leader Jack!

@Shirin Moosavi: It was a grey overcast day.
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.
Lovely work, the processing really works...timeless :)
21 Jan 2009 6:47pm
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.
21 Jan 2009 10:56pm
Fantastic shot, I am sure the world over there were many tears of happiness yesterday
22 Jan 2009 1:43am
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!!
Nice tone. It as thought it pulls you through a flashback swirl.
22 Jan 2009 3:22am
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.
Beautifully toned! Well done Jack!
22 Jan 2009 8:16am
Toning is really Great... Nicely Captured indeed!
22 Jan 2009 9:38pm
Simple with great post processing. Works really well!
The 20th was a special and emotional and hopeful day!!
29 Jan 2009 8:39pm
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.
