Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: All Things Farm Related

Good thing we live in an area with farms, eh? All reminding me that we owe it to ourselves to see if there’s any fresh corn or tomatoes at the locals farms. It’s getting late in the season, so mostly now, it’s all about apples.

All of these pictures were taken while we were visiting friends in Peacham, Vermont. All shot during the hour while they harvested a field of corn. I wasn’t sure I would like them in monochrome, but I think I like them better. The sepia and selenium toning gives the photographs an “outside-of-time” feeling.

    Sepia is a good Choice for country scenes, transports you back to the good old days. Particularly like the photo second to last with the spout shooting out the corn

      Thank you. I thought that was a very cool shot. I didn’t know until I saw it that this is how they harvest corn. The corn holder looks like a little house on wheels.

      Thank you. Sepia really is the right color to make the photos look “old” without making them “antique.” I learned something new, which makes ME pretty happy, too 😀 That’s part of why I love your challenging. I try things I wouldn’t otherwise attempt and sometimes, it really works out.

    That looks so good, especially with the farm equipment.

    Quite agree – they give a warmer, homlier feel to the pics than simple b/w!

    Great shots!

      It’s not just sepia It’s a combo of sepia and platinum which is why it has a silvery cast.

        Cool! Looks better to me than plain sepia or b/w 🙂
