ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/120

I didn't get a chance to shoot much last month. Last day I went out before work to try and get something - but failed to be inspired by anything I got.

Returned home and remembered taking this shot couple of weeks back.

I pass this barn every evening on my ride back home. It was a beautiful evening, storm brewing in the background with the break in clouds lighting the barn. I pulled over the side, reversed back to the spot that worked just right, rolled down my window and took few shots. I didn't have my Nikon with me, maybe it was a good thing :)

I have over 400 pictures on my phone, lot of them taken on my drive to work. Its quick, its always with me and it takes pictures - what more can a photographer ask for :)

Another proof that camera doesn't matter as much as the photographer. Way to go Vikas!

awesome finish for an iPhone! It's a great shot no matter what camera was used but extra point for the phone-cam

Lovely shot and great black and white. I love the whole scene - wonderful buildings and beautifully moody sky. Border is perfect too.

I really like the processing here, it has a haunting feel to it. Hope to see this on the front tomorrow. 10

Like the sharpness of the barns against the softness of the cloudy sky. Beautiful composition.
