Barn Charm Time Again!

 This first barn is in the Yakima Valley, not far from a winery and in the midst of several orchards.  I've shot this barn several times.  I did a little editing to get this.  I started with brightness and contrast, but really upped the saturation to get these colors.  I also took out a power line that sliced the scene.
This next one I took as I was headed to work.  The haze and the glare worked nicely to highlight the barn, one I'm sure you're familiar with by now.  I upped the contrast, warmed the scene and then did some local tone mapping.  They aren't works of art, but they work!  Be sure to stop by Barn Charms!

Love that first barn. It's a beauty. That second shot, looks like they grow hops (I recognize the poles from around my own area). :-)
