Hi Tom, Are you familiar with the work of Charles Scheeler? If not, you need to check him out. He was a painter and photographer, and he dealt in extremely sharp reality, both in his photographs and in his paintings. He was around in B&W days, so he'd probably have rendered the blue barn in B&W. Had he done the same thing you did, and he did a lot of it, it would have looked something like this. Only problem is, Scheeler used an 8 x 10 view camera, so the sharpness and detail in his pictures was much, much greater than in my grossly over-sharpened rendition of your shot that I've posted here. This isn't a bad shot, but if you're going to do this kind of thing you need exceptional quality in the image. Nothing less than medium-format is going to get the job done, and I even question the ability of medium-format to do it right. For this kind of thing -- at least at the moment -- you need to go back to 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 film, and contact printing. I know I'll catch flak for saying this, but I'll stick by what I said -- even after admitting I've done my share of this kind of thing with 35mm or its digital equivalent.
