Continuing Charm from Washington

 This is this week's entry for Barn Charm.  It is HDR (High Dynamic Range) and it really shows the colors that were there! It was a wonderful summer morning and the sun was about to rise.

I've been in touch with Tricia from Barn Charm and she's been giving me a few pointers on textures.  So, I managed this next one with the addition of a texture.  Looks pretty cool, huh?
 After playing with that a bit, I decided I could make my own textures.  I began by taking pictures of a few OLD book covers.  Then I fiddled with them a little and here is one that I thought worked.
As usual, click on over to Barn Charm to see the rest of the barns.

gorgeous barn, i love the first one best....the colors are just amazing, something you can't create. i adore the creative side of adding textures, i see everyone doing it. at this point, i am afraid to start that it will consume me, from an artist standpoint!

I love the color of the HDR (great find in the lane & the old barn there) and I also love the black & white, too... they're both gorgeous!
