Love this area in Ohio. Its Hale Farm and has so much history. There were about 10 different type of fences to choose from, but I liked this one the best. Mainly due to the different style of the fence opening, where they used smaller wood to close it off. Hope to get some constructive critisism on it.

Great job framing the shot. I find the whole color and tone of the capture very appealing. Any chance you also got a shot in a landscape orientation? I keep wanting to see more down the fence line. Still, one of my favorites. 9

Like the elements in the background as they are not distracting but complimentary. The colors are nice too

Beautifully framed & composed, excellent depth of field, good exposure balance and not to mention that "rustic/antique" feel to it... Very well done!

Love the moss on the post. Great composition.

I think i would have tried a horizontal composition, with the fence wood at a third to the left and the wooden car-thing, still out of focus but at another third to the right. Now you have a very nice wood in the center, which leaves too little place for the wooden car to breath.

Love the sky.

just maybe to centered, maybe more to the edge, a little more perspective look.

This is my kind of shot. I love images that can aesthetically break the rules of composition. The centered post works well with the lead-lines and the wagon positioned for balance. I know the DOF is intentional but because of the strong lead-lines to the wagon, it might help your score some to include the wagon within the focal range. This will make a great Black/white as well. High marks from me.
