About the Padlocks and Chains

One of my favorite places to photograph is the old abandoned farmhouse on the working Klutts Family Farm. The farm is on lock down and protected by these heavy chains and padlocks. Someday, I hope to speak with the family and even get the chance to tour the house and document it.

But for now, I get to use my SEL55210 telephoto lens and shoot from the property lines.

About the Image

I shot this image with my Sony Nex-3N and Sony SEL55210 telephoto lens in bright and sunny conditions. I then processed the image in Adobe Lightroom to remove dust spots, straitening, and some other fine tuning before post processing. Next I processed the image with Topaz Clarity to bring out the colors and details. And for the final step, I used Topaz B&W to convert the image to black and white.
