Flash of Red Day 10

Architecture
Bit rough and tumble, but looks like it is still protecting that hay bale!

Ooops, looks a bit iffy, fabulous contrasts

Very cool capture and editing..love your title
February 11th, 2020  
So many different textures and the lighting really accentuates that.

Well that shed has taken a bit of a beating, hasn't it?! But the hay still looks to be in pretty good shape. Great catch!
February 11th, 2020  
Can use come repairs. Great find and shot.
February 11th, 2020  
A great scene!
February 11th, 2020  
Love this ramshackle scene! So much to see! I want to explore it!

What a wonderful scene - you have caught the character of this shed so perfectly. It's a little tilted, but still does a job!
So sorry I have not issued your challenge until tonight.
How would you like the give a try at selective focus with both the foreground and background out of focus but your subject in perfect focus.
This can work in a couple of ways. Your can have a blurry foreground such as leaves or branches making a natural frame for your subject with a very large aperture so that the background is also out of focus.
Or - you can have a field of tulips, wheat, or other large expanse of vegetation, and again focus on one individual with a wide open aperture.
I guess you can figure this out on your own!! This will work with B&W as well if you want to continue with the Flash of Red challenge.

@kph129 That bale seems to be pretty dry looking despite the rains we've had lately. Thanks for viewing and commenting.
@bkbinthecity Thanks Brian. Unfortunately there are a lot of these run down buildings and sheds and barns around here. You'll be seeing more.
@pusspup You're so right about that Wylie. Thank you.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thanks Jackie. I guess it's still doing the minimal.
@tosee Thanks Tom. I really get tired of coming up with titles, so just thought I'd name it by the theme and day.
@tunia Thank you Tunia. I appreciate your comments.
@olivetreeann Thank you Ann. I guess it's still in use, as the bale looks fairly new.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry. I think a lot of the old sheds are just left to "die" when the people who used them regularly no longer live there or don't have the same need for them.
@kwind Thank you Kim.
@mzzhope thank you Hope. It's on private property, so I was worried about taking photos of it. But it's wide open to the public and I was on the road, not on the property.
@farmreporter Thank you Wendy for your comments and for the challenge. I will get to work on it.

Great shot and textures.

@haskar Thank you Haskar.
February 12th, 2020  
Such a sorry sight - always want to restore buildings like this

@fbailey Thanks Felicity. I think this one's pretty much a lost cause, but I could be mistaken.
