I went on a shoot recently with Kasey Cline up around the Lakewood/Golden/Morrison areas of Colorado.
This was taken in Golden, CO, where they have a small walk of sorts with old buildings.
This is, obviously, a red barn. The backside of it, as the sun was not cooperative, but I feel that it has life to it. It was extremely gorgeous.
Believe it or not, this is an HDR image.
I took one photo, created 2 copies in Aperture; lightened one and darkened the other, and then opened in Photomatix Pro 4.
Merged and then did some very slight manipulations to bring the colors more to life.
Opened then into PS5 and sharpened and resized.
Taken with a Canon 5D MkII and Sigma 12-24 Wide Angle Lens @ 24mm
