Challenge: From the Ground Up III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: South Park, Colorado
Date: Aug 5, 2006
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/8

Date Uploaded: Aug 6, 2006

Near the towns of Como and Jefferson, Colorado is this long abandoned homestead. It's a bit of secret location of mine.

I hope people don't score low based on a very strict "ground up" perception. Believe me, I was as much on the ground looking up as was possible.

Predicted score - 5.75

Post Challenge - Wow, I can't believe this finished so high. Thank you so much to everyone that voted and commented. I had hoped that this would be well received, but I had my worries. I'm so pleased that so many of you liked it. Thanks again!

The sunset in the back does the trick, I think it gave the picture the perfect background

Awesome composition, colors, and overall feel. Maybe just slightly over ni'd on the front corner of the barn (?). Well done... straight into my favs. 8

great late-day colors and sky. That old barn is a real find, and you've brought out the best in it.

What an awesome photo! The softness in just the right places and the razor sharp focus in just the right places make this so beautiful! This is "my" kind of photo! I just love the feel!

A very nice scene that hasn't been overtly processed. Bumping to a 7.

I love this! Maybe it's just being a former Montanan!!

I really like this piece. Could be amazing at sunrise/sunset based on the proper angle. Work this location. Sun streaming thru the openings is the real shot. Nice job.
