Hi, Kathy...

I know that you did some shots a few years ago at the State Fair or a county fair and thought I recognized this basic scene. Not necessarily the same shot, but it was in color. Anyway, I went back through your gallery and didn't find it; so I must have been thinking of something else.

This shot's a doozy. Very, very interesting post photo work. I personally shy away from any of the artistic subroutines. Most of my shots are so totally over-edited that they don't look like they were shot on this planet anyway. I shudder to think what might happen to my "reputation" if I tried to turn one of my fog shots into a pencil drawing.

You pulled it off rather well. I'm headed over to the contest voting. For $50 I'll vote for your posting. Don't forget. I grew up in Peoria and understand Chicago voting. Good luck in the contest. I'll hold my vote for 24 hours. The bidding starts at $25.

Seems it got sent through in time, Kathy. Sure is an old dairy. It was started the year my grandmother was born. Oops, gave away my age...kind of. lol Sepia is always good for this kind of image. Good luck.

How often do I get the chance to use the phrase "Your barn door is open!"? Not often enough I'll tell you; and it's not from the lack of barn doors in the local vicinity either.
Good post work on your image, Kathy. A nicely composed scene. Nice textures and lines in the photo. Best of luck in the contest.

A wonderful entry, Kathy. I like effect you used as the image has the feel of 'yesteryear'. Creative work & best wishes in the contest.
