A Touch of Color Among the Ruins

Posted by

Any touch of color brightens up the landscape. The out-of-focus building is one of those in the shot from two days ago.

ART WOLFE INTERVIEW - John Greengo of interviewed Art Wolfe yesterday. It was a fabulous interview. My understanding is that it will soon be available on their website.

k@ from Paris, France

Oh Jack, I just Love this... Makes me feel the luck we have to be alive and able to share this very world : peaceful, beautiful, and the crooked roof does not succeed to talk to me of anything negative because those honey-like colors win it whole. Bravo for how you composed it, like a painting exploring all the richness of the yellowzz*

zOOm from Paris, France

We may expect a Buffalo Bill coming out of your picture Jack ! Incredible ! Do you think I have too much imagination ? ;-)

5 Nov 2009 11:36am

@zOOm: It would be a great setting for a Wild West movie!

I like the bright autumn color of this bush among the sage brush. The out of focus house still have sufficient detail that it works very well in the image. Nice one.

5 Nov 2009 2:50pm

@don: Thanks, Don.

Stunning composition and colors.

5 Nov 2009 3:13pm

Nicely shot. Love those colors.

5 Nov 2009 4:23pm

@LauraS: Thanks, Laura.

Macrobaby from Vancouver, Canada

Another beauty. I like the use of DoF here. The blurring of the barn and the old tree in the background gives this picture a story book quality if that makes any sense... :)

5 Nov 2009 4:34pm

@Macrobaby: Thank you.

Lyl and Roll from Besançon, France

A very good automn picture... nicely composed.

5 Nov 2009 4:58pm

5 Nov 2009 5:18pm

Michael from Deer Park, United States

striking colors and tones!

5 Nov 2009 5:39pm

@Michael: Thanks, Michael.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

It's amazing how something so small can have such a visual impact with its color on the surrounding landscape. The building has so much character up close....even if it may not be the most ideal character for others. :-)

5 Nov 2009 5:54pm

@Steven: Thanks, Steven.

Marieastro from France

Nices colors ! Great shot !

5 Nov 2009 10:13pm

@Marieastro: Merci. Still wish that you would join Am3.

Stephane Themeze from Maryland, United States

Love the DoF and the composition itself. It gives good dialogue between the tones and colors. The light is sweet everywhere and is reinforced by your selective focus. Good processing and feeling!

5 Nov 2009 10:19pm

@Stephane Themeze: Merci. The selective focus was more of a gift than intentional. But it definitely is what was wanted.

I`m amazed how much details are included here - without making my eyea restless!
The saturation of the scene is so rich and warm, story telling ;)

Barbara from Florida, United States

Outstanding image, Jack.
Very impressive and winning image. There is a beautiful balance of color with the golden light on the building and the yellow bush.
The out of focus background really gives a 3D quality with the shrubs in the foreground.
Quite a remarkable photograph. 5 stars!
