Annette, Barb and myself headed out to Carrol and Frederick County today. Our first stop was Linwood, Maryland a small rural town with classic farms and old abandoned train supply buildings for the Midland Railway. We traveled down the route 77 east of Thurmont and found an old abandoned barn by the tracks. We spent several hours creating images.
All these shots are HDR, some with artistic applications in Photoshop. I did take a couple straight shots which I have not processed yet, but it was an HDR day as we had bright blue skies and all our scenes were very high contrast.
We had a nice lunch in the Cozy Restaurant and went on to shoot some icey river shots in the Catoctin State Park. It was a full and fun day, and Annette's birthday!
