Greetings from the critique club:)

Firstly I think that this is a very eye-catching shot. It has all the visual elements to keep the viewer looking including amazing sky detail which pulls the viewer to the barns, nice use of leading lines.

I agree that the sky looks a little over-processed, but it has interesting colours and textures in it.

I would really like to see this in black and white and very contrasty- I think it would be stunning. Would it have been possible to get the sky detail over head and isolate one barn with the sky pulling the viewer in from above?

Overall congrats on an excellent score and placing.

Love the foreground and the three buildings and trees - sky seems a tad wonky.

the sky looks overcooked on PS and really un-natural IMHO. It's a shame as the shot has real potential

Very nice shot and angle. Sky is just beautiful and I really like your leading lines and the composition. Nice work.
