    1- Love the idea and overall composition. The one thing I would change is moving slightly to the right and maybe changing your shooting angle a wee bit to get that shed entirely in the shot

    2- Really cool shot, I dig it. Not much else to say... nice sharpness (haha), great dof.

    3- A good shot, although with the composition, I would of liked to see a nicer sky. Might be an HDR candidate to bring out the sky detail without losing the detail in the barn. Awesome subject though.

    #1 I like the framing of the shot, but I would want to see more of the frame. Also, there is a bit of chromatic aberration along the edge where the top of the doorframe meets the sky.

    #2 I like the contrast of sharp to blur, but the object in the background draws the eye a bit too much. It either needs to be removed or blurrier.

    #3 I agree with BT. It's a great composition, and the barn looks good, but the sky needs more contrast.

    #3 needed a circular polarizing filter.

    That edit done by syphlix definatly helps the image IMO. And the darkness of the clouds really gives it a nice ominous (sp) storm approaching feel to it.

    Yeah, I would have liked to have stood a little farther to right, but I was in a barn and couldn't get my angles lined up right for where I wanted to be.

    So that's what that line is at the top of the door. I meant to try and fix it before I posted the image but forgot. It is fixable yes?

    Craig - the sad thing is I had a CPL in my camera bag and forgot all about it :(

    just used photoshop, selected the sky with the quick selection tool, then brought down the exposure of the sky a hair and messed w/ the curves a bit...

    since you have lightroom you can do similar w/ the adjustment brush... set it to automask, paint around the sky, and slide the exposure/contrast/saturation etc sliders til it looks like how u want...
