A feed silo in North Texas cattle country

This brick feed silo appeared to still be in use, it was next to an old broken down wooden barn with a rusted metal roof that almost touched the ground. This is a 70 mph photo, smile, for Flash of Red texture and perhaps Rule of Thirds?
Looks good for 70 mph! Nice silo.

Not bad at that speed. You do have the rule of thirds going on horizontally. If you hadn't been moving and had stopped for the shot, you could have accomplished it vertically too by moving your subject (the silo) slightly off-center to the right. Obviously you can't always control that when you're shooting something from a moving object! Good shot!

i used to do a lot of drive by shooting and mostly at that speed. this is excellent really. I just wish that tree on the left is rather whole but that can't be helped. play with this in whatever program you use. maybe if you exclude the half of the barn with the braches, then trim the bottom to exclude the railing (i believe that's the car window). that would move the silo to the third right column. if you feel it is cramped at the bottom when you take out the railing, try cloning it out. aces!

Again another lovely capture with little foreground movement Lou Ann, not easy when your whizzing along the highway:)

Interesting for us farmers to see this, great catch at speed!

Nice 70 mph road photo. Of course, Jerry could have stopped for a moment to let you compose the picture .... but Roland won't stop either. I like it. You should tag it 70mph too.

Thank you all for your wonderful supportive comments, I appreciate every one of them. The road along the bottom of the photo had to be cropped, nothing was straight, so more adjustments made. This was just the best I could get without the plethora of incredible edit software packages out there.

Good scene

I've tried some 70 mph photos and they were all rubbish. You do really well with these shots! The silo, old broken down barn, and dried up bare landscape are all perfect in B&W. :-)

This is really good for a drive by shot! I really like Vikki's suggestions @summerfield and find them so helpful.

Great drive by shot. Works well as b&w.
