Hay Bales on a Hill
This was taken just south of Pierce, Nebraska, on a gravel road.
I did a lot of modification to this one in PS, but I think it turned out well. I converted it to black and white, adjusted levels and curves (particularly to give it more contrast), added a lot of noise, and added the vignetting. So, in other words it was kind of an experimental shot.

Hay Bales on a Hill

I love these...

I sent the windmill one to my mom and she was blown away...these remind me of home...not just the place, but the time...

The effects that you're adding give me the illusion of an event plus time, or, rather, a memory. Again, I think these are amazing.

I was thinking some more about this. David Plowden took a lot of pictures of steam engines and small towns in America, things that were changing and disappearing when he was doing his work. He was concerned with documenting a disappearing world. With this kind of image, my concern seems to be trying to recapture what is lost and to emulate the photographs of old rather than to record the world today.
