Red barn with attitude.
Colors turned up.
I'm still experimenting with my new camera. This was a little barn (shed) off a back road just north of the Illinois Wisconsin border. I used a program called photomatix that allows you to combine different exposures of the same picture.
Or you can create..
HDR pictures: you load and combine differently exposed shots into a High Dynamic Range Image. You can then manipulate it with tone mapping. Much more intense colors, shading and detail. The blues in the sky tend to darken though.
The above shot was taken about 6:00 in the afternoon. The picture below is basically the same one without any editing. The HDR version catches one's eye, but for a desktop background I like the natural one. I especially like the blue sky.
