This is the last shot of the first day of the Sumpter trip.

Good series. I like very much these old american barns :)
Thanks for your comment.

@Paco Díaz: Gracias.
Delighted to find your pictures also! I particularly like this series of N / B with these buildings see very old! it seems that this light that frames the image prevents the building to disintegrate! it's magic to watch!

@Mathilde Collot: Merci, dear Mathilde. As I approach 74 later this month, I feel a special connection with old, dilapidated buildings and corrals; they especially help me to realize that there is a special kind of beauty in old age.
very nice shot and b&w

Where abouts in Oregon is this. I guess I could just google Sumpter. We travelled down the Oregon Coast two Autumns ago and the scenery is beyond beautiful. This is another wonderful shot in your b&w processing.

@Marion: I've written four responses, and each time they have gotten lost in cyberspace. We've been near Fossil, Oregon, (please Google it; I'm worn out). The Sumpter part itself doesn't begin until November 16. Sumpter is north of Baker City in the foothills of the Elkhorn Mountains (again, please Google it).
Beautiful B&W!!! Great processing. I like the composition and lighting.

I really like this partner shot for your barn - perfect in mono, Jack.
PS: Fiona would love to set up her tent in an area like this. :D

nice bw corral ! i like the contrasts and ambiance "old western"
8 Nov 2009 2:13pm
Nice shot and framing . I prefer tones from yesterday's picture for these type of shots !
8 Nov 2009 2:19pm
@MARIANA: Merci. I, too, am partial to the antique effect for these kinds of shots.
The has-seen-better-days corral makes a fine subject. I like your processing which produced light grasses and nice highlights on the trees. The wide range of tones shows excellent shooting and processing!

@don: Thanks, Don. I love this kind of subject matter.
Timeless shot and your border adds a lot ! A strong and contrasted black and white post processing.

Thank you for your bit of info regarding LR-2. I went to a workshop last night on organizing and setting up the library. I will likely upgrade to LR-3.
Now as for today's post, again, beautiful collection. I really love how you have presented this image with the border.
8 Nov 2009 4:41pm
@Macrobaby: Buying LR2 when you did, you might be able to upgrade to LR 3 for free when it becomes operational. In any case, the beta version is free for everyone now. I like it so much that I will pay whatever it costs. Thanks for your comment on my photograph.
Very good B&W and presentation of this one !

8 Nov 2009 10:52pm
@Susan: Snap it up.
Beautiful subject and composition. This old corall looks like it wont stand much longer
8 Nov 2009 11:40pm
@PD: Thanks. Probably not.
There is more a sense of confusion here with those fences.
9 Nov 2009 12:31am
it's hard to tame wilderness
with wooden fencing.
9 Nov 2009 1:35am
@Seraphine: Very good, Seraphine. PS - would love to have you join Am3.
Another cool B&W.
9 Nov 2009 4:08am
@B. Thomas: Thanks, Barb.
Looks like everything is still standing. like the parallel with the pine trees. Nature looks on another kind of nature.
