I like this shot. The stark contrast between the barn and the snow and trees is very nice.

Hello from the Critique Club!
Hi printer4u :)

What a cool idea for a photo. Everything wants me to look at the horse, but the way the lines are set up they send my eyes to the red building, which is what you were aiming for I believe. The pole in the foreground draws your eye back, and so does the line of the snow on the left.
Technical stuff. Well, let's start with the snow; it seems a tad bit over exposed. Which would mean you should use a faster shutter speed, so that the white doesn't have so much time to really pop out. Over exposure also usually means that there's soft focus to the photo; i've noticed that in my own sunset shots, where you try to take a good picture of the sun setting, and you end up having a really fuzzy foreground. I guess it doesn't help if you were out at mid day taking the picture. I would have chosen a fairly higher aperture too, like F8 ish..
What really makes this picture is how the red pops out in this snow. Great work, good luck on the next challenge!

Very nice picture. Good use of the rule of thirds concept. I love how the barn roof points to the horse, great colors also. Snow is a little blue but it is an awesome picture.

What a depressing shot. The horse disturbs me. Seems terribly skinny or just has signs of being over ridden. Therefore, the mood takes color away. I like the weathered look of the barn and overall run down. Once again, depressing.

Shot would be great with or without the horse in it. I'm glad you didn't desat the blues or something to make it stick out more. Good job.

good composition/rule of thirds. The snow seems overexposed, it would have been nice to see more of those footprints in the snow, but its always hard to get any detail from white coloured subjects.

Any color works well contrasted against crisp white snow, and you've taken advantage of it well. Good.

I too am a believer: white IS a color and you communicate it well here.
