This is lovely. there is tension and beauty throughout.

Strangely, I was thinking about this photo the other day and trying to remember where I saw it and why it came to mind. Although I'm sorry for the context of the thread I saw it in again, I am glad (and a little taken aback) that I found it again and have marked it as a favorite so I won't lose track of it again. As you can see, I was one of your "10" votes ten years ago, and commented so at the time. My opinion has not changed over the past decade. This one truly struck a chord.

This photo is simply so so. I've. Seen so much better from others.

Hi Ray, I apparently gave this a 9 during voting way back when. Terrific shot and if it had been in a smaller challenge it probably would have ribboned and got a higher score.

Great vibrant colors and excellent composition for this beautiful scene.

Superb autumn colors here, composition is excellent. Diagonal lines and the sky fill the frame nicely.

I think this is one of your best photographs.

Yeah, that'd probably be my personal fav too if I took it. Great shot.

Hi Ray, I can't believe I hadn't made this a favorite yet, I thought I had, well that is fixed now!

Whoa! how beautiful, the stunning colors, which I don't get in the desert on my barn shots... this is great as a fan of barns, I'm certainly going to look through your portfolio.

Beautiful! I absolutely love those vibrant autumn colors which contrasts visibly with the drab color of the barn not to mention it is a symbolic compliment to the 'falling to pieces' barn. Love how the road acts as a leading line for the eye to travel on to look at the scenery in this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2007 01:28:33 PM
Wow! Some beautiful country in your area. This is a stunning photo. The color and the lines (leading road, horizontal hillside) work very well to create impact.

I'm hoping for some fall color myself as I'm planning an outing with a friend of mine (former DPCer 'nova') in the Shenandoah's a couple weeks from now.

Now, if I could only find some foggy hills, a weathered barn... :P

another great iamge from your portfolio!! This reminds me so much of so many backroads here in VT during "Foliage" (our 5th season :)

BEAUTIFUL composition, colors and details captured here

Wow. very very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2007 12:58:57 AM
What a beautiful scene. I like the way you placed yourself on the left side of the road so that the road divides the lush looking green grass and the barn from the colorful hillside.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2007 02:41:43 PM
Beautiful colors. Almost makes me wish it were autumn again! :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2007 11:13:43 PM
I really enjoy this shot ray! I like how the colors of the background and then the browns of the barn balance each other and then that green from the grass is just so appealing. you have a very nice sense of color! I also enjoy the use of the leading line of the road that just leads you to that barn. I think the only actual critique I can offer is the focus seems a tad off, but I think it may be the lens. I just got a new lens to replace that and was surprised how not sharp that lens is. it's a good lens, just not tack sharp like some others are.

overall great shot though, wish I would have voted in this challenge.

Simply fabulous photo. Visited "the colours" a few years ago and this brings back memories of a glorious time. I like your bold use of colour and saturation.

Wow, Nice one Ray! You will have to show me where you took this!

Such a scene, Ray. Stunning. You should make prints available. Congrats on top 100 in this challenge.

One of my fav's during the challenge. 64?? Should be in the top 20 easy. Great work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 12:34:03 PM
How could this have not made the top 20! I don't understand. But great score anyway, and better than winning, you have this work of art.

Amazing colors, textures, composition and light. I love this shot, for what my opinion is worth. This is a great example of a landscape shot, and I hope it gets the attention and appreciation it is due. Good luck.

very, very nicely observed. one of the handful of landscape images that actually capture my interest. i can only imagine how much fun you had getting out shooting...hope you were able to make a day of it.

Like the contrast with the dreary sky and old gray barn against the vivid colors of the fall trees.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2007 02:30:04 PM
What a gorgeous color palette it is too!
The cracked blacktop adds a lot to the age/rustic feel here.
Nice!

Isn't nature grand? I love this one.

Great composition and a beautiful scene. Too bad the sky wasn't more cooperative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

7 - Like the combinations of colors and grays. I know this is 720, but still 'wish it were bigger' - an image that likely cannot be appreciated in this medium. More detail/depth discernible, be even better, but difficult. Nice scene. Also like the cloud capture over the mountain/hill top. The top part of the image isn't as 'rich' as the rest of the image, but I do understand that you've likely left it there for compositional balance, as well as color. Lines are good. Up to 7 from 6.

A beuatiful scene and the impending storm adds that extra special something.

Fantastic colours! I like the way you have the road leading the view into the frame and along the wonderful colours in the trees to the great old barn! Nicely done :o)
