Blown out!

I kid, I kid! It's obviously on purpose, and it works.

Really nice shot; the wide angle adds a ton of interest.

This could be a photo seen in a calendar. I love the rural setting.

That's a great shot Ray! Love the composition and the wide angle effect. I'm not bothered by the slightly overexposed areas called out in some of the comments--it actually adds to the effect, and they certainly give it a crisp contrast. But if you wanted to, adjust this, you could try duplicating the layer and setting the blend to multiply. This can work but only if it's slightly overexposed. In that case, if there's detail in the hotter areas of snow or sky, that can bring them out.

Wonderful shot!

I have never seen your barn shots (this one and the others in your portfolio) before because I am a fairly new member. They are very pleasing. You have a real eye for these. I grew up in the farm country of upstate New York and these feel like home to me. Now from a yucky suburb in Ohio, I say thanks for refreshing my memories.

I love this!!! Something about dilapidated, falling apart, decaying wood, that has always appealed to me. This exposure is good, considering the difficulties inherent in snow.
The composition overall is nice. Reminds me of my native New York. I love north country, but now live in Florida. I can just imagine the cold, crisp air.

Beuatiful photo. I really like the perspective. The sky is wonderful, and the details in the wood are amazing.

too bad the snow & sky are a bit blown out, but I love the surreal look of your photo.

Nice setting and well framed. Good exposure control given all that snow and white sky. Nice wide angle. You might get hurt on this one simply from the 640 limitation. Nice pic.

I like the angle and composition of this, and good exposure. The sky seems a little bright, but at least the snow is white. I like the contrast of the wood against the snow/sky also.
