Fantastic. This shot is good example of what is meant by the art of seeing. Well done.
Wow, thanks man! Since that's the nicest thing anyone has said about any of my shots, I'll lay out its background. When I went out this past Saturday morning, I had originally intended to take an angled frontal picture of the barn (whose roof you see here), with a backdrop of dramatic, pre-dawn clouds. However, the clouds that I wanted weren't there, and I figured out pretty quickly that I was either going to have to come up with something else within a few minutes or go home.
Choosing to stick around, I walked around to the back of the barn and saw a potential shot, but the light changed before I had time to set up the 'pod. Discouraged, I started to walk back to pack up, when I noticed these flame-like clouds over the barn roof. Fortunately, I had my 45mm tilt/shift lens on my 5D2, so I set up the 'pod, extending it as high as I could. I used live view to tilt to the angle of the roof, dialed in f11, and fired off 2 frames of 3 shot, 2 stop brackets.
When I got home, I did some exposure blending, mainly to cut down on the noise beneath the gutter. I stitched the two frames in PTGui, and spent most of my time deciding how to crop the shot, since the original frame had much more of the barn and background. I tried the "less is more" approach with this one, to try to eliminate visual "noise." It's a simple "rule of thirds" division, with an attempt to create interest with lines and geometry: the roof lines, to my eye, somewhat mirror those in the sky. I included the gutter, because, hey- look at that patina! Anyway, glad you like it. Oh, one more thing: yes, that star in the upper right has got to go.
