    I find it boring. There is nothing to anchor the image, and there is nothing about the barns themselves to catch and hold my attention. This images only saving grace is the shadow of the telephone pole.

    What's wrong with IR film?

    Is obvious that is IR film, you don't have to think to much about it. The small sprouts of whatever is growing in the field are that white because the great reflection of IR light, and the sky is that dark for the same opposite reason, I mean, the lack of IR light. That may be the explanation for the missing utility lines.

    I don't know what his concept was, but I think the image failed. Too "busy," too "geometric." Almost like it was made to show how to follow all the rules of composition and still have a bland result.

    I found it boring too. With the IR film it's an easy shot. Minor White have a long way better images.

    There isn't anything 'wrong' with IR film. It's just that similar values to those in this picture could have been found with regular film and filters, but with far greater difficulty. For me, IR is often a bit of a cheat....scenes that are really not very interesting are made somewhat less so using it. Just my bias, but it's a very rare IR 'graph that impresses me.

    Is this not what they call ADD photography? The curse of the modern world (and the domain of digital)

    The first thing I thought was that the shadow of the telegraph pole and the sky gives quite an apocalyptic feel to the scene. The barns seem vulnerable.

    The possible religious connection is interesting -

    So, did he "clone out" his own shadow?

    This picture is featured in the Infrared Photography Handbook by Laurie White which is a great infrared resource.

    It seems obviously infrared to me, but that is the first place I ever saw it.

    Best,

    The shadow of the telegraph pole has a vague threatening aspect and this is what prevents this photo being boring. We are waiting for what is to happen next. The shadow also contributes a 3D look.

    A nice picture. One that bears a second or third look. For all it's simplicity, it seems a complex structure. It has some depth [for me - I can only speak for me].
    It may have been a 'snap' but that snap has been well captured which makes me wonder.....
