We're Not in Kansas Anymore

September 9th, 2006

I shot this abandoned barn at dawn. It is a composite of two images - one exposed for the sky and the other exposed for the foreground. If you look closely, you can see the spider webs in the tree on the left.

good grief - do you not know how to use photoshop or any image editor to crop it out?

Wow...I am always amazed at how negative everyone is here. Let me break it down for you: it is free. If you don't like my work or my placing a credit line on it, then don't download it. Each time I post something here, I get the same useless comments (apparently unmoderated too). You can bet I done posting my work on this site.

I noticed the negativity right away, also.
But I just thought I'd say that I LOVE this!
I love how it looks so surreal.
Anyway, it's one of my favs.

Thanks for shooting it :)

Bluemeds -I guess I thought your original comment was directed at me too. Thanks...I apologize for my irritation.

Very nice! I have a real liking for old houses, barns, etc.
It's not always easy to find a way to make them more appealing
photographically. Great job.

no problem - i just don't understand people that are bothered by such a small photo credit line in a corner when the entire wallpaper is wonderful... the original artist/photographer always deserves the credit, especially since this is all free, like you said.

keep up the good work - the technique you used for this shot is pretty cool. softens everything up and leaves it looking very surreal and peaceful.

Very, very nice photo. Reminds me of my grandmothers place in Oklahoma. Thanks for putting this photo up for us to download. I appreciate it.

despite loathing (deeply) the "spencer gifts" 70s font in the upper right hand corner, i made this pic my wallpaper a few days ago, and i'm jamming on it. such a great mood. my microsoft desktop dancers fit perfectly atop the left barn door, converting it to an elevated stage.

i suspect the nasty tone of the first commenter was in frustration, because this is a super-tasty, unusual pic with a suprisingly bad, glaring font that has the opposite effect than what was probably intended; makes me want to avoid the URL advertized.

anyway, my compliments to the artist. that's my kind of place. thanks for sharing it.

Obviously I jumped the gun in generalizing everyone here as negative. I apologize for taking the initial comment (way) too seriously. Thanks for the kind words.

I just resubmitted the image without the credit. Hopefully the website admin will replace the current one with the new one. Thanks again!

As most of the pictures here this is another amazing contribution! Just made it my wallpaper.

I really appreciate the decision of uploading it again without the credit. Even though the credit belongs to the author of course I ususally find it irritating in great pictures like this one.

In general I think the picture speaks for the author itself :)

What's with the out of place square area in the top left of the picture? Looks like a clone stamp or healing brush blemish.
Posted By: coffeelover from gmail.com

Although a lot of post processing went into this shot, no cloning was used. I can't seem to find the square you are referring to.

I have a link below to an editied and cropped picture with the said area in question surrounded by a black triange:

<a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y293/FastA4Turbo/e2ca8248.jpg" border="0"></a>

I'm not questioning your work, I think its just a rough spot that got overlooked.

Beautiful picture at any rate. I have it featured as my wallpaper on my laptop!

For what it's worth, everywhere you go you will find people who are negative, it's just a sad fact of life. But if the positive is more overwhelming, then simply ignore the negative.

I really love the photograph, it's serene and the colors all fit in so well. Great idea, but I'd hate to see someone with an eye for beauty leave over childish and petty comments.

For those who are always negative, here's a line that hopefully will change your perspective in life: "Attitude is the mind's paintbrush, it can color any situation."

This image is inspiring. It captures a surreal essence that is fantastic and imaginative, and makes me want to start photographing on my own. Thanks for putting it up.

Hey coffeeperk,

I love this pic. Can you explain what you mean by how it's a composite of two images? (what software did you use to composite them?)
And did you just take the picture with two different F-stops?

Your picture is very inspiring, I'm a student and I'm contemplating an artistic career. THANKS!

-peterjmathews I shot this image and exposed for the highlights (in one shot) and the dark values (in another). I then brought them together in Photoshop and used layer masks to reveal areas of the image where there is detail. I have several free video tutorials on my website that cover this process. Go to http://www.paxtonprints.com/ and look for the "tutorials" link at the top of the page. From there download the video on how I processed "Vitsta." Here is a direct link to the download (you will need the latest version of quicktime to play it): http://siteground128.com/~paxtonpr/videos/image_processing_4.mp4 Hope that helps a little! Steve

Is this seriosuly a real photograph and just not a render? Looks...odd. Nice photo though.

Fantastic Work! I would venture to say this is the best on this site, to me at least. Disregard any negatives. The web is full of freaks. You could give those type people everything in the world and they would still complain. They are probably just jealous this wasn't their piece of work. Keep posting your shots.

BTW, I don't see a text URL in the 2560x1600 shot (nor the 1440x900). Maybe you've taken it out since the first comment.

When I first looked at this picture, I said two things to myself.

#1 No way that's real
#2 No way that's fake

Truly an amazing shot if you can make me question my own perception. Keep up the good work!

This is the most extraordinary photo I've seen in a long time. I was just considering doing the same thing, though not as complex. I checked your website and there are a LOT more like this!

Hi Steve,

Stellar photo. Really amazing. There was one guy earlier (natemata) who said he saw some artifacts of photoshopping in the upper left of the picture. Out of curiosity, I looked closely and I think he was right. (I'm looking at 1920x1200) If you look on the leaves in the upper left, you can see that they are very dark but there are areas which have been lightened. The lightened round brush strokes are visible and the entire surface of the leaves haven't been lightened up - maybe it was a dodging tool. I hope you'll take this as constructive criticism.. I could only hope to ever shoot something this good.

Hahaha! I just arrived fom KS a few months ago and I started missing it like crazy the past few days! Then, by a very accident, I end up seeing this picture. It's already added as my desktop wallpaper!

The only thing I don't like is the first comment. =P So: CONGRATULATIONS!!! hahaah =P

I just read every single comment. Coffeelover resubmitted this photo without the text URL.

The top-left area looks like it might be just the way the light is hitting the leaves.

This wonderful piece is probably my favorite wallpaper, and I have 117 being rotated by Wallpaper Master right now, all of which came from IFL. I like this one so much that, if I miss it in the rotation, I immediately go back to it when I return (for I always remember where it left off when I walk away from the computer).
Posted By: RedAE102

Definitely the crème de la crème of IFL. I love that it looks surreal or dream-like at first glance, but upon closer inspection, it has that certain x-factor that only real pictures have. I'm not a photo connoisseur, I only play one on YouTube, so I haven't the faintest idea what I'm on about, but I do know what I like, and I really like this wallpaper. Truly a work of art. Thank you for sharing, coffelover!
