Once again I went down to shoot my favorite place in Akron, Hale Farm & Village. We had an awesome snow fall, so I went that morning to shoot. There is so much history in this area, it was all developed in the 1800's. This was just an old barn they used in the village. I entered this same barn in the Fences Challenge. Hope everyone likes it and any constructive criticism is always welcomed.

a little bit too centered, IMO. Otherwise a great shot. Could be in the Top 10! Good luck! - 8 -

Snow works very well for this challenge; perspective is a bit too centered for my taste.

Very nice nostalgic feel to this. Wonderful tone and grain. Good job of catching the snow as it falls (fast shutter speed). Only minor complaint from me is the wagon on the back is a bit centered, although it would be hard to change this (moving your position) without screwing everthing else up in the composition. Looks like some area homes in the near vicinity. Overall, well done! Good luck in the challenge.

Beautifully done! The grain truly adds to the effect of this awesome photo! You do get the feeling that you are looking at a photo from years gone by.

Lovely subject/location. Your title lets you down a bit - the lingo is too modern. It's crying out for some quoted bit of poetry.

Perfect grain for a nostalgic pic. I'd pan back a bit - as it is, I feel "crowded." Love the sepia and the overall set up.
