POST CHALLENGE ----
Thanks for all the comments and votes. This is my highest rated image to date. I have driven past this little farm a few times and finally stopped to take a picture early one morning. I know the barn roof looks over saturated, but with the way the sun was hitting it early in the morning, this is pretty close to the way it actually looked.

Once again, thanks for all the comments and votes.

Beautiful shot! I think the red barn is great!!IMO, of course it is the subject and it brings your foucus to the exact point.

I like the image. It has nice color, and the lighting is very good. I'd love to see more light on the road, but sometimes that just isnt possible.

I might even crop the top part of the photograph off, and make it more panoramic. I believe it would give a stronger feel to the image, even softening it up a bit, giving that dreamy feel to it.

Good job, and 119/679 isnt too shabby!

Lovely landscape, though if it were mine I'd crop a big hunk of the foreground out to the level of the fence on the left, to de-emphasize the asphalt and the grassy right side, pulling more attention to your center of interest, the barn with its picturesque lighting.

This has a slight soft focus on the composition as a whole which gives it a soft, dreamy and surreal feel & mood. Love how you included the curved country road in this composition. For as I view it, I get the feel of traveling down the country road and discovering this lovely view of this lovely red barn surrounded by the wonderful greens of the countryside.

I like the country feel to this. I think the reds are a bit oversaturated.

the red on the barn seems a bit overprocessed... but otherwise a good shot

Composition works well with the road, the fenceline, and especially the overhanging tree in teh upper right. Lovely rendition of the colors, too.

Nice looking serene photo with great light hitting the building. The right hand edge of the photo is less impressive.

This is beautiful... a classic scene for an oil painting - excellent shot and technical details are spot on!

That red feels too over-saturated for my taste.
