    Barn In The Smokieshttp://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b75/newmarq/Barn-1-a_zps3cffc346

    Something a little different for me to present.

    This is probably my favorite thing that you've posted. Landscape and architecture are my thing and this combines both. I wish the sky had a little more detail and looked a little angrier. The barn seems a bit too centered in the frame for me, I would definitely turn to the left more, but I am guessing there might be an unwanted object there. It's not your fault but the silo blocking the barn bothers me for some reason, I think moving the frame to the left will improve that too, blocking that little bit of roof protruding past it. That being said I like the scene overall.

    I'm still trying to figure out where you've hidden the darn slinky in this shot! I like the subject, and it looks like you had a good moody day to work with. Probably would try to drop the exposure maybe 1/3 to a full stop, and then pull a grad filter through the sky to bring out more cloud details, but mask the barn and silo. Could play with cropping off part of the right side in order to take the barn out of center, but I almost hate to lose those beautiful trees. If you get back there again, I'd suggest seeking alternative perspectives as EOS3 suggested...it is a great subject with lots of potential.

    Love the contrasting colors and the greenery against the old barn. Very nicely done.

    Might take a bit of work but I would be tempted to clone out those power lines, and the grass seems to have a yellow hue is that normal for this time of year?

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...
