[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A "spaceship" that's been in rural NE Texas for at least the past 20 years...just remembered it was there and had to snap a pic or two.

Used an IR filter in post processing and kinda liked the high contrast it created. :)

Hi Laurie,

Nice and funny!!!I like your creativity,nice option for the B&W.

I add your photo to my theme about aliens.:)

Good use of b&W for a spaceship photo. I don't believe in Spaceships but if they were real they could look like this! :)
I like the flowers in the front. I kind of wish you would have gotten the whole spaceship in the picture but I like the off centered feel of it. It must have been a REAL sunny day for the 1/1000 shutter speed to work this well. Nice contrast and Good work!

nice feel and mood to this photo, I agree the IR filter must have really enhanced the effect.

Ahhhh! I know where this is!! I used to see this on the way to my Grandparent's house out in Quinlan, TX. If this isn't the same one, it has a twin!! I love the high contrast in this image, and the effect on the sky is awesome. It is like anitque space age. Wow, thanks for taking me back.
