    I wanted a sort of "spying" look, or show that I'm shooting from the woods. How's the composition here? I sort of liked it, but I have mixed feelings. Does the black and white conversion work?

    40D with 70-200mm @200mm.
    1/500th
    ISO-100
    f/4.5

    Not enough farm. I understand your perspective, but to me there's too much foreground. I think you could crop it tighter and still keep the perspective from the trees.

    I agree. You could almost just crop off the bottom 2/3...

    The blurry tree just doesn't work.. it is only a distraction.

    The farm isn't the subject, it comes across as an afterthought. If you're going for pervish you're too far away :p

    The farm may not be intended as the subject, but being the only thing in the frame that's in focus, it ends up being the subject.

    That was sort of the idea, yeah :)
    I hoped the farm would become the natural resting place for the eyes.

    Compaq,
    I too feel the foreground is too long and the left side tree is a sore to eye; but i really like your idea ...actually i really like this part of the image
