Still Standing

In a previous post we visited a tree farm where there were acres of evergreen trees neatly lined up in rows. Today, we take another point of view, one that always causes me to wonder about times past. Whenever I see an old building I think about how things must have been in it's glory days when it was all spiffed up and standing proudly. The builders must have had a high degree of admiration for their accomplishment. But that was yesteryear. Well weathered and worn, these two buildings have seen their better days. One is a barn, while the other may have had another purpose, not sure. You can see that many years have past since the stood proudly. Nevertheless, they are "Still Standing".

I ran the 3 exposure through Photomatix then pulled them into CS5 where a Topaz Adjust layer was employed. Topping things off was a light vignette via onOne Software's FocalPoint 2.
