Taken at a working historical farm. They were putting up hay in the barn when I saw the open window at the top. Flirting with the DNMC crowd with this image but I figured that the over exposed window would act as a good anchor point for the image. I loved it when I shot it. I hope I love it at rollover.

The window looks sort of overexposed, as it would be if you compensate for the rest of the picture...

dnmc ... while I recognize the window is over exposed, imho, it doesn't really use over exposure to make the shot.

Very cool capture. But the small area that is overexposed is such a small and incidental aspect of the image that it doesnt really have an impact on the picture. The man, the fork and hay, the hat, the tobacco - those are my primary interests in the image. I actually wish the window wasnt there and it was just more slots between the boards. But again - a very cool capture - just not for this challenge.
