This image was one of several farm photos I captured while I was on Fir Island looking for snow geese last December. The snow geese were there, but far away from public access, so I got no close-ups but only flock images. Even though the geese didn't cooperate, I really liked the clouds that day and started taking "big sky" telephoto shots of local farms. I processed them in B&W and posted a few here in the forums:
All of these are very nice, and the final rankings aren't much more than a toss-up amongst them.
Winner: @betamax . This B&W just popped for me a bit more than the others.
1st Runner-Up: @Rob Rider #1. Loved your work on the sky.
2nd Runner-up: @frankmulder #1. The tighter crop doesn't match my goals for the photo set, but works well on its own.
Thank you to all participants. Looking forward to see what Alan brings us.
