This looks like a classic piece of art done to perfection.

I continue to be amazed at what triggers validation by system administrators.

This is a nice image. Just judge it to your own criteria. Perhaps some will think this is a 10 and others will think it is a 1.

As for me I think... ;)

Very nice study - great textures and symmetry. Love the signage. [7]

Composition: Interesting composition. There isn't one main focal point, which some viewers may not like. For me it adds to the interest of the photo as a whole.
Technical: Nice colour and contrast. The b&w wall looks surprisingly good against the wooden door/windows.
Meets challenge: Yes
Overall impression: Very nice photo. Well done.

I like it. I think you shouldn't have cut off the doors at the bottom. Perhaps you had a good reason. Nice image of aged wood....Lots of character.

Leaving the brown here was an interesting choice. I'm not sure how you did it - was the barn completely green or something?

Oh, wow. Beautiful. The warm wood colors contrast so nicely with the b/w, and the sign really makes this "pop". Has an "old-west" feeling to it. Also somewhat of a soft-focus effect or something that makes it feel a bit dreamy. I think a print of this would do well on the market in my area of western Montana. 9

Wonderful! Gives off an old western feeling of cowboy days long past.

Very interesting shot. I love the look of this weathered building and your shooting position adds to it. I also like the shadows on the door.

Very good work.

I have a question on this one....is it partially desaturated, or is that how the building is? Just curious....
