    The sky looks great but I wish there was more detail in the barn...it looks like it would be really interesting.

    I like the effect of the barn being sort of sillhouetted, and showing colour in the foreground and sky, nice work! BTW love your avatar!!

    Amanda, this is a really cool shot! The sky, the tree ... I think it works well. I might try to lighten that barn a little, but for me this would make it to the wall.

    Thanks so much everyone :) Any ideas as to how to get the barn lighter...I messed with it for a long time but kept losing the sky...

    I think you could lighten the barn by using dodge brush in ps, but it might alter the colour cast, it's worth a try though.

    Thanks dalebe :) I'll give it a shot, it seems burn/dodge is the tool I have the most issues with. I tried duplicating the background layer and then applying it as screen, but that took away the sky...

    Very nice shot. You can try selecting the barn only as a separate layer and use the shadow command in CS, but not too heavy as it will look unnatural.
