A lot going on here, but I like it; everyday life.

Yes, the red is there as a focal point, and this tells a poignant story.

a red wheel

glazed with rain

beside the white

What a great find! Now it is not beside white chickens, but it is near a white laundry basket and some hanging laundry that is white or near white. The faded saturation of the final composition gives this a sense of age; an old photograph where the rich colors have faded with time. In my opinion, this has such great potential (7 and above) if only the main elements were better composed. I get the sense that this was not your property so that you could not go and rearrange the main subjects. However, what could have been done is to move off to the right to take it at an angle where that small tree trunk doesn't cut across the wheelbarrow. Or, if possible, step up to where the small tree is and take the shot from there so it doesn't interrupt the view of the red wheelbarrow. Also a closer zoom could have the red wheelbarrow fill the bottom right corner of the frame while the laundry would stretch across the frame from left to right.

it does... and if you decide to move it, you've always the wheelbarrow.

Great find but to me it is way to busy and cluttered looking, I think I would have loved to see this image if shot from a little closer and an angle that just included the wheel barrow and the laundry.
