I was riding in a car one day and saw this barn in the morning. I returned later to insure the sunrise would strike it the same way. This is the view and crop I ended up with, a frontal view. I used the quick fix on Adobe Photoshop Elements to put a tiny bit of red into this image.
There are many angles one could use here, including elevating or lowering the camera. I looked at the barn from different angles and took about 20 shots. After viewing them I returned to my original impression. I think it is great to go with your instinct…but do not overlook other possibilities.
Here is a shot I took that turned out very differently than the image I expected. The camera did not see what I saw. Vertical shots are often disappointing for me. Below you can see the re-crop and fix.
