    Both taken from the same, quite oblong barn of a farm in a village where a friend of mine lives (some 25 min by car from mine):

    Mentos, your two photos reminded me of the fact that I took these two last Wednesday when I went to see that friend, we went for a walk round her place, I saw this barn out of the side of my eye and said: "Stop, hang on!" ... and only then she realised why I had brought that rucksack of mine and what was in it :D.

    hmm, regarding composition, i think the first one is boring, and the second one really nice :) would push up the contrast a bit ...

    yeah I like the second one a lot! but maybe you'd like to play with shadows/highlights and curves in PS? that are a really powerfull options there !! and here on these two shots you have some great texture shown! with shadows/highlight you may pop it up!

    I'll go against the crowd on this one, I find the door on the left and the sign 1956 adds interest to the picture. I might would have cropped the hanging window on the left, but I love that exhaust fan...

    Cosmo, thanks for that :D ... I wanted to include that door (that was the first of the two before I zoomed in on only the windows and the vent) and the 1956 plus the plow made from klinker bricks into the wall above the door and those vertical vents ... and the reason why I did not crop that little bit of window on the right is: I wanted to keep the photo's normal print size (which here is 800x533px), and did - for that particular one - not want to lose neither gutter (top) nor path (bottom).
    Maybe my decision was not so good and I should drop either of those plus that window?

    I don't know what format you use when you print, I go by 8x10, 4X6 ect. But I really like the out of camera 6X9 format and also hate the cropping effect when pictures are sent to print. So I try and have my prints made 6X9, but go find a frame.LOL So I understand and have been there. Do you custom make a portfolio?

    Hmm.. I can see why you'd want to keep the top and bottom. I really like the gutter and the path. For me the only thing that takes away from the first is the bit of branch coming in from the left

    Clone-tool-happy people who have a lot of patience are very welcome to remove that bit of branch for me :mrgreen:

    (I am not overly happy about it, either, but ... :scratch: hmm, well, ... it was there!) :wink:

    Although the brickwork plow above the "1956" sign in the first shot is very cool, I really really like the second shot. Good eye, Corinna.
