Red Barn Black Sky

For those of you that are in the Northern VA area, you may regonize this red barn. Its right off of 66 near the Business 234 Exit into Manassas. I've been driving by it for years and thought I'd finally get around to photographing it. Of course it seems that the day I choose to do it the sky is bleak. I didn't realize what a chore this was going to be to get a picture. I knew the spot that I needed to be to take the photograph. In the parking lot over by the movie theater. The thing I didn't take into account was the traffic on 66 getting in the way of the shot that I wanted. Fortunately for me there was a sturdy barbed wire fence for me to climb on.  Yeah I know what you're thinking "ouch". One of the things I noticed about the image was the the contrast between the red and the white portions of the photograph. Something that I also noted that I needed to fix was the aweful bland looking sky as well as powerline running through the sky as well. I'll spare you the details of how I "fixed'er" up. As I am sure it will put you to sleep.  Take care - Tim
