    Taken from the highway, this barn is part of an old dairy farm that went out of business years ago. The land is now part of a childerns home. The Flag is replace when worn.

    The damage to the barn was done partly from old age and a F5 tornato that went though the are a few years ago.

    Need some ideas on how to make this "better".

    Maybe try cropping off some of the right hand side to help with the composition a bit? Looks like an intresting place to photograph.

    Yes but...... the only access to the place is to pull over on the burm of a 4 lane highway. Going to do some research and try to find out who to talk to about getting on the property without getting arrested. LOL

    I also tried getting a wider shot but the flag gets alittle lost.

    Yes, adjust the image 1% or so counter and I believe you'll have it. I like it a lot.

    the children aren't inside the place! Another thing, if it doesn't have any trespassing signs... you don't have to worry about being arrested, you will most likely be just asked to leave.

    I always ask permission to enter someone's property...just plain common courtesy. Besides, when I enter someone's property, I figure 'm representing those of us who take pictures and want to do whatever possible to protect our image (not meant as a pun).

    I really like this shot. Only thing I would say is maybe a ~slight~ bump in the contrast. I really need to learn to colorize b/w photos!!!
