When walking behind my new/old house there is a forest regrowing itself where the barnyard once was. Some old outbuildings still teeter in place and others have fallen into piles of rotten planking. I find rock and brick footings and other evidence to show me where things once were, but the forest is reclaiming this part of the farm. This little building is a favorite of the grandsons because it is hard for adults to enter but just right for little boys. I've tried to find a way to photograph and present it. I may try to persuade Jack to ride the hobby horse down there this weekend. Any tips about processing, composition, framing, all appreciated. I toned down the greens a bit, as they were so strong, "enhanced" the rays, and added a slight dusty texture to soften it and make it look a little more painterly.


Wonderful Minnie !!! Great colorful greens, starburst along with the sunray and the almost overgrown leading path line makes this an enjoyable view.

Thanks Dave. I have a lot of forest to practice with.

The sunbeam is amazing pointing you to the little path and back again.

I might crop the left to completely frame it with the tree, but otherwise I can't see a thing I'd want to change! S-
