Challenge: Black and White Landscape (Basic Editing*)
Collection: Challenge Entries
Camera: Olympus E-520
Lens: Olympus 14-42mm f.3.5-5.6 ED Zuiko Digital Zoom

This was shot in North Park, north of Pittsburgh and about a mile from my house. I was at my wits end finding something traditional to shoot. I'm terrible with landscapes. In desperation, I put the camera on the road in front of this scene to see what would happen. And got this.

I too was concerned about the placement of the focus. But moving it ruined the effect, and for lack of anything better to submit (and with the clock ticking) I just went ahead with it.

Thanks for the comments!

Some rocking good comments. This is really something to look at, and I rejoice there were so many dpc heads that got turned.

OMG, how on earth did this only get a 5.3? I give up, I really do. Ho hum. Scored well from me.

I thought possibly this was yours... really love the take on the challenge. Excellent landscape, I just love that leading line - IMO should have scored higher!

The DOF is almost a bit too shallow for me.

Love the unique take on this with such a shallow dof!

Pretty darn cool and bold for this type of challenge. I do love blur and barns, so I'm fond of it...

shallow dof spoils this for me. Overall pic is weak

Lensbaby? Not sure why you put the sweet spot on the road. It's an interesting texture, but the barn looks a lot more interesting.

I think the DOF could have been a little deeper, here, but overall I like it!

I like your point of view. (not voting)

I like the perspective, but the focal point is kind of strange. Maybe the entire photo could have been out of focus to give the viewer a sense of motion.
