    I am really enjoying this shot. Let me know your thoughts. I could use a second opinion.

    Would look better either sunset or sunrise to emphasize ruin, or other contrasty lighting.

    Not sure what they were thinking. It is on a very exposed spot and the winds are notorious in this area. It is at the beginning of the road so I think connivence was their main concern. Clearly this barn has been worked. The owners probably stopped using it in the 70's.

    What monitor profile are you running? This was clearly shot during sunset.

    Hmmm... I love all the wood. I'd like to see what the barn would like like from a distance of say 50 or 100 yds.

    I really like this shot craig!

    But its very centered in the frame. To me, I think it would benefit from having some of the landscape in there as well. Also, something is needed to make the subject pop a little more.

    However, I love the detail that you've captured in the wood. Nice job.

    Thanks! I shot a bunch of this barn. Maybe I will post another one. I have a real problem with my work being center heavy. For some reason I find it impossible to fix.

    The shadows do show it was taken during sunset (well, could have been sunrise, for all the directions I know of that spot :greenpbl: ;)), but it is still quite bright - too bright to really suggest sunset or sunrise, which accounts for this bit of confusion, I assume.

    As to the composition, I am with NJman on the centredness and am now curious to see yet another photo of your little series on this barn that you took. It sure is a very interesting, and VERY wind-blown structure! :D
