The Milking Hour


This photograph was taken the same night as the previous post, sometime between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. when the late day sun was pouring into the barn.

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 1600, shutter speed 1/250s and aperture f/2.8. Curves adjustments, color balancing for tone.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!



... in my fathers footsteps....

There's so much going on in this image, that it takes a while to really view it all. I love that illuminates spider web.

Your high ISO pics of interiors are always so sharp and clean... makes me wonder about saving up for a 5D.

One of your best! I admit some partiality to Holsteins.

Wow ! A piece of evidence that 1600 ISO is usable on 5D.
Problem : It just gives me the idea to add a 24-70 2.8 in my bag just beetween the 17-40 and the 70-200...
But my Credit Card says "NO!"

Love the texture and the detail. One of my favourite from you in recent weeks Kathleen :)

Brings back a lot of memories of when I use to spend time on my uncle's farm helping him milk the cows. I thought I was helping, but I probably was more in the way than anything else.
