I went out today driving around in the country. I ran across several old barns and farm houses that fit the challenge. I also took some photos of an old train depot, but decided on this for my entry. Hope it does well.

Well I don't understand the 1 & 2 votes, because I think this shot is much better than a 1 or 2, but anyway, I do appreciate all of your votes. A special thank you to those that took time to leave a comment, positive or negative, they help you grow. This is my PB.

Looks like it dropped out of the sky and smashed on the ground. The tree competes with the building for my attention as the subject. I love the detail, colors and perspective on it.

Nice image but looks a bit muted. Possibly needs a bit more contrast to make it pop a bit more?

Nice and dramatic looks like it has crumbled right when you took it.

I like this :) the building actually looks hilarious, in a way. And the blue sky really adds to it. Great one!
