More Fun with Photoshop

  I don't know Greg, maybe you can't teach a old dog new tricks, LOL.   I still am not getting my light right but will keep trying.  These were done using the shutter speed setting I told you about and they all turned out dark.  So I played with them and got some interesting results.  Might as well since as it they are just so so shots.

   This neat old barn was just screaming to have it pictures taken.  I can't help it, I take pictures LOL.

   Now the next few are tweaked with Photoshop.  I think any of these would now look cool framed.

               Now this tree was an actual red tree and looks so pretty.  Dark though.  Sigh.

           On the next shed shot I took out the wire which looked terrible and used different filters.  The first is the original again.

I just love old farm buildings. Here in England so many have been converted into homes, which is such a shame, all the character is lost as well as the natural habit for Barn Owls, which means they are now an endangered species.

I just love the barns you have captured.  I wish I could find some like that around here.  On this end (calibrated monitor), the exposure doesn't really look that bad on the first one.  In the one with the red tree, the internal light meter was fooled by the overcast sky.  It tried to even out the exposure so as not to completely blow out the sky.  The result was having the trees underexposed by a full stop.  Either try to eliminate the sky from your composition, or use a split ND filter.  You could also use a spot meter on a midtone color (green grass works well) and take your reading from that.
