John Deere at the Ranch

These old tractors are always interesting to photograph. I don’t know why! I really have no penchant for tractors one way or another, but they have a nice feeling about them for some reason, especially with a pastoral scene in the background… like a cabin with smoke coming out of the chimney. And just in case that chimney runs out of firewood, there seems to be a bit extra right around here somewhere…. now where did I put that extra bolt of wood?

  • Birgit

    The colors are fantastic in that shot – I like the green of the John Deere. Interesting angle. Again – very well done!

  • Mike

    Hi Trey,

    Superb colours, superb composition, perfect angle, excellent photo.

    All the best


  • Stuck In Customs

    Thank you. It’s obviously a bit distorted, but maybe that’s what I like about it! :)

    beautiful pics

    I live on a farm that keeps John Deere tractors in good, shiny shape. How did you get this one to look so awful?

  • Fenraven

    Tractors are a staple of people who shoot in HDR. Besides, the country is full of them. I especially like the old ones, with the seats whose stuffing is coming out, and metal that is rusted and pitted from age.

    Nice perspective on this shot; showing the location by shooting through the barn was terrific.

  • Gail Moshier

    Wow, brings back memories of days of my youth on the farm!! Nice photo, Trey!! from your oner handed friend in Montata :-)

  • Hector Garza

    Those greens came out superbly.
    What I love the most are those small details… like the smoke coming out from the house’s chimney.

    Hey Trey, I love your work! This is one of the first sites I go to every morning.

    I don’t see where you have ever talked about how you frame and present your work. Do you like the traditional frame and mat approach or do you do something a little more unique to complement the uniqueness of your work? I am sure others are curious too.


  • Adnan H.

    Nice picture as usual Trey. Just a question, a lot of your HDRs look stretched and out of proportion in some parts of the shot (e.g., the lower left wheel of this tractor is going sideways), is this a side effect of piling 5 pics together or a wide angle lens?

  • lindsay

    :) i think it’s “extra cord of wood”… not bolt of wood…. bolt is for fabric, i’m pretty sure.

    anyway… i love your photos!

  • Nick Moore

    Excellent shot! @ Adnan H: It’s probably distorted from the 14mm-24mm lens at it’s widest setting.

    Is there anything particular marketing-wise you followed to become so popular and have your name known? I am starting up my first website and the lack of visitors is quite disappointing.

  • Sarah @

    I really enjoy how the green of the tractor jumps out at you!

  • Stephen Zacharias

    Hey Trey this one is great. I was actually just on Flickr looking for pictures of tractors. Then I decided to come over here to see what the latest posting was and I see a lovely old John Deere. Made me chuckle. Nice work as usual. Grew up in the country with many John Deeres around.

    Greeeen Acres is the place for me….faaarm livin’ is the life for me………

    I heard the name of the tractor Eddie Albert always had sooo many problems with, but I forgot it. This one looks almost as bad as his! Nice picture – I like the view out the barn of the house, trees, & the hills. Very serene scene.

  • Stuck In Customs

    John — I try all kinds of printing – I think this stuff looks best on Canvas

    Linsay – you are right of course – a cord! I knew that…hehe…

    Nick – Thanks — well – it is a massive combination of things. I spoke about it for a bit the other night at the little engagement. I think the answer is too long to put right here!

    And thanks to everyone else for the good comments. Sorry it takes me a while to respond – I am covered up lately!
