When this challenge popped up, I wondered how far I might have to drive for a decent rural shot. Then I remembered Wagner Farm -- about 4 miles from my house. It is the last remnant of a family farm started in the 1850s that ran until the 1990s. Then, most of it was parceled off to be housing developments. However, the local park district bought the last 20 acres, and operate it as a historic farm to give city kids a glimpse of rural life. It is a tight shot on the barn to eliminate all the houses on either side.

Lovely shot, and not a drone :)

Super glad they've kept the farm, otherwise most kids would think that milk comes from a plastic bottle!

Yep, yep. Definitely rural. Nicely seen. The reds are slightly over the top in the foreground / lower third of this image. Guess you pushed the saturation to pop the barn? Dup layer and erase thru, or masking, would have kept those areas more neutral brown. Just one persons opinion. Good luck.

Nicely composed. The cows add a nice bit of life to the scene.
