This old wagon sits in my sisters yard and by now I think I have shot it from every angle possible. One day I'm going to hook onto it and set it on my front lawn :)

Hi Karen,
A fine B&W picture, well composed with the wagon nicely of centre and the tree on the right. Brightness and contrast are fine, but regarding the composition must let you know (before Shelbeesmum would tel you :-) that the horizon is slightly tilted. Nonetheless a fine posting!

Slav Karen,
Very good B&W composition.Nice sharp and details.

this pov is nice, good choice, the b/w really works wonders here, good sharpness too, nice one~!

Hi Karen,
I like this one, the B&W was a good choice. The POV you've used almost looks like the handle disappears into the grass. Good off-centered composition, maybe clone out those overhead wires but they're not really noticeable. Well done.


Hi Karen
Simple but beautiful composition
The Black and white mode is really good choice here
If I were you, I remove those power cables.
Best wishes

Hi Karen

Fantastic tonal range, in this superb b&w image, with good sharpness & light contrasts. A well composed shot, of the old wooden wagon. Tfs!

très belle image NB, qui colle parfaitement avec le sujet, la vielle charette, le captage et cadrage est mangigique, avec le bra plus éclairé, superbe, très bel effet.

bravo et amitié


Hello Karen,

Oh, this is one of those shots which tears me in half!
I love the b&w, the fine textures and the uncluttered simplicity. But, I want to move the the bar at the front and make it point into the shot on a diagonal!

Have a good day, my friend,
Bev :-)

hi karen
great b/w image of that old wagon.the grain on of the wood looks great,love the overall shot looks excellent.

Nice shot Karen, classic style of composition. I like the B&W 'timeless' look to this!

Only thing I'd do is clone the 21st century wires out of the BG as they're quite visible.

Hello Karen.
Well composed shot.
Good idea to show this in Black and White.
Looks more effective as it is an antique.
