This building used to be Fremont Ross High School, Fremont, Ohio, until 1959. It then became the Junior High School, and then the Middle School. It is no longer there as it was torn down just after taking this shot. I came upon this Hi-Key look by accident when editing it in Topaz Simplify. I kind of liked it, so I kept it.

Looks good in high-key Jimbob. I have it in photoshop elements but never used it because it made photos too bright. Good composition and clarity here.

Perfect use of the 'High Key' technique or principle Jimbob. Hardly to believe that it was created by accident, lol. Anyhow well done mate!

It is sad when they tear these old structures down JimBob. Think of all the memories made there by all the students. Great shot in b&w.

That reminds me that I do have such option in my Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3. [discreet manner to boast about new camera, eh?]
High-key! Yes. But have not spotted any object suitable for trying it. Generally too busy last days.
BTW nice shot - one must remember to buy lots of HDDs to store all the pics on - they keep on vanishing or the objects you once wanted to shoot vanishes and then one is in trouble.
Stop me, because I could go on like that for hours and so much work awaits !

That technique is a favorite with some movie directors Jim - we've seen it in each of my Film Noir classes - it works beautifully here Jim.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I generally avoid the Hi-Key applications when editing; however, it works just great with this image, Jimbob. I particularly like the fencing. Bravo!

Really was a nice looking building and a very nice work you did in the capture of it.

Very nice. I looked up "Hi-key" and saw this: High-key lighting is usually quite homogeneous and free from dark shadows. The terminology comes from the key light (main light).[

Seems a bit drastic to tear the building down after you took the photo, but I'm sure you had your reasons. Remind me to never let you take my photo. A good capture of the scene, Jimbob.
