Old Henry's Farmstead

Beautiful Farmstead in Victoria BC

When I first saw this submission I thought there's a touch of Ansel Adams here.

The things that gives it that Ansel feel is the darkened sky (which is an effect that can be created by using a red filter), the high level of contrast, and the choice of scenery - Ansel was very big on the open country; especially Yosemite if my memory serves me.

Of course, much of the processing (in order to achieve dark skies and high contrast) can now be done using software. But it still takes a keen eye to select the scene - so well done Dana!
