    I really liked this perspective and worked on it some more by taking out the cow hoof print in the foreground ,which did not lead anywhere and thought the old wood in the barn deserved more detail so brought it out .

    that picture is worth to print, must be beautiful to display,
    what camera did you use and what program to re-work?
    Did you have a black and white setting or changed with the prgram or it shows like this just because of the weather?

    Thank you and I used a Rebel XT to take the photo in raw image format and converted it to B&W and also reworked it in Lightroom..

    I usually use a white mat with a brown mahogany frame .But it being black and white I will get them to have a grayish mat .

    Mohagony sounded good, but black will bring out the picture more.

    I should drop in this section more often and learn. You have an excellent camera. Some day I might get an SLR.
    I didn't even know what Lightroom is, so I looked, no wonder you can do nice things with it. That is something I will get.

    I think you are right to think a black or charcoal frame would be the best for this black and white composition.
    You make me think, I should try something with black and white, it is stunning, we are so used to tons of colours and forget to even try something else.

    Nice job LF ...I like the shot. (y)

    Small suggestion if I may. Clone the spot out that's just above the barn door. It's very distracting to me.

    Thanks Guy .I thought the same and took it out :) It printed nice at 13 x19 . I see now I can use plain paper setting even using good professional glossy paper and let printer handle color mang and can get true black and white tones. This guy had the idea and it works perfect with the Epson 1400 :D
