friday’s fence {190/365}

The farmhouse edition ;)


I wish I would’ve framed this a little better – the fence post more to the right instead of so omg pretty much dead centered.  I didn’t even notice it when I was shooting away. I was totally enthralled with the farm house and the evening light and getting the depth of field right.

I do that often, actually.  Concentrate on one thing, and totally forget about all the rest. But it’s happening less and less these days.

It’s a learning curve. heh.

Anyways, short and sweet tonight. I’m totally beat.

Happy Fence Friday!

    I really need to join some of these groups so I have something to shoot when I am out of inspiration:)

    Other than the dead centeredness of the picture, I really like it. It is peaceful.

      They do help, and the feedback from other members is really great to have.

    I, personally, LOVE the fence post dead center. I think it really is the star of the show because the barn and field beyond are blurred… Here, it stands out and stands alone, a sole sentinal guarding the land, old and gray, but faithfully doing his duty.

      aww! Thanks Sue!
      I was concentrating on the tree to the left and getting the barn in between the tree and the fence just right … didn’t even realize where the fence post was ending up!
      Multi-tasking … *sigh*
      LOL! ;)

    Awww J, the farmhouse, rolling hill and lush green trees are the perfect backdrop… I’m still learning all the technical things, however these armature eyes think your photo is divine :) My thoughts, its okay to find center.

    I love the clarity of the post with the farmhouse blurred out. It’s perfect.

    I think the brightness of the tree helps take away from the mid center of the post. I love this one; totally calming photo that just takes you in and makes you stop and breathe…

      It was like that IRL :) AND there were these little tiny white butterflies dancing around everywhere over those fields but I couldn’t catch the little guys!
      I tell ya, the rural areas around my home are just gorgeous.

        We’ve got a lot of that around here as well, but I am SO petrified of snakes I don’t go out – I can just see me fainting from fear & being left out there bitten. I really need to get help – lol.

    See, I like it like that. But, you know, I often find that framing is one of my challenges. I always want more when sometimes less is better.

    I like the way the alignment of the fence post draws your eye towards the farm house
