My daughter took riding lessons at this barn when she was seven. It was full of life then. Now, she is twenty-nine, the barn's owner has moved away, and there is no one to keep it company as it slowly dies surrounded by the city.

Something old. Use your photographic technique to emphasize the age of your subject.
Composition - good
Technical Aspects - good
Meets Challenge - maybe. Don't confuse old with unkept
Visual Impact / Originality - good

Good use of lines...the diagonal shadow, the lines of the siding, the tree also gives a diagonal line. (I'm being frank - not to offend) As I look at this, the brightness of the sign is distracting. I feel as if there should be something else - as if part of a story has been left out. The image is not 'speaking to me'.

The peeling paint needs to be alot sharper. Its probably been blurred by your picture editor, rather than by the camera.

Sorry to score so low, but I am really not sure of the picture overall. It seems to me to be lacking in content. But, I'm just one voter and I hope others have better eyes than I

interesting concept... I would like to see less of the greenery and more of the wall in this composition... good work :) - jmsetzler

Very nice use of contrasting colors, and I like how the tree gives it some balanced. It just seems a little soft on the focus, and I think a sharper focus would have really made the sign jump out. Good job, though. karmat

I love the texture of the building. I might like the composition a bit more if the sign were closer, and maybe not so near the center of the photo (move to the lower right?). The photo could also be improved with a small amount of sharpening in Photoshop. Overall, nice work!

I think this would have worked equally as well without the sign - the contrast between the plant and the tattered siding would have been enough to signify age to me. That said, I guess you couldn't get close enough to remove it for the photo.

Bad shadows

that keep out sign looks like it says "POO" between the leaves. Heheh it made me laugh.
Anyway, its a good photo, I like the contrast between the old red/brown, and the lush green leaves.
