Greetings from the Critique Club -

First off congrats on a great score and placement in the Free Study.

You have a great image here. A great feeling of Americana. And your editing style enhances all the cool features of the image. The barn looks great, the windmill stands out strong, the white fence is balanced in well and the John Deere is just vibrant enough to be seen without the saturation being too much to ake it silly. And on top of all that the flag looks great. I don't hink you could have asked for anything better had you requested each piece to be placed. The only shame is that you can't see the weathervane. That would have been a nice touch.

Not much to say about how to improve. Had the sky been blue it could have been nice, but you deal with what you get. Some may not like the processing, but I think it works well. You just have a very nice picture here. It would probably go over great as a print.

Looking at your portfolio I see you need to enter more challenges. You do very good work and I (as I am sure others) would like to see more. Good luck!

I love these colors - even the brown sky is great. Such a clean attractive image. Back to bump you up to 9.

Very nice! I gave you a 10 a couple of days ago and am just now getting around to commenting on a few. I love the overall tone and bright spots of the barn. Everything fits beautifully.

Lovely shot, with great colors and composition. The stacking of the fence, windmill, and barn is excellent, as all share the straight wood patterns, but each runs in a different plane of direction. Easily a 10!
