Nice use of the road as a leading line. Maybe the composition could have been simplified more by cropping off at the sides of the road, making the cart a more prominent subject.

An excellent example of rural life and a timeless classic.
Great choice for a black & white edit and the longer focal length compression here works well.

What gets me are the street lights! Great shot. Could use a little greater contrast and some sharpening.

I love Amish country. I hate the triangles they have to put on the wagons!!!

good depth and comp. Could use some more contrast on the right.
