Easily should have been top ten, in my opinion. This would make a gorgeous print.

Love this scene. I wouldn't have thought of shooting the tree with the barn behind it. I probably would have tried to get the tree against the sky. That's why you're the artist and I'm the photo hobbyist. BTW, Larry loves this shot too.

Terry, I love this shot. The red is awesome. And I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Melethia's assessment, it does look like the tree is the ultimate protector.
I hit you with a 10, and I think this beauty has been severely underrated.

Terry, the barn in the background is great. I'm surprised this didn't score higher than it did.

I admired this the 1st time and have come back to it..

It's one of the best!! Well seen and taken.. This is a typical scene where i live. It's taken on a snowy day the red barn sets the tree off..

I simply love it..

I liked this very much, but even though the tree was the focus of the challenge, I still didn't care for it centered. I would have liked it much better off a little to the left.

I really like your choice to put the tree in context. Almost as though this is the guardian of the farm. Not a big tree, but he's spread his branches out to encompass and protect the place. And dang, it looks cold!

Extremely well done. Love it.

Not sure you should have put the tree directly in front of the buildings.

very nice handling of this appealing image

I think I would have preferred this at a different angle. Maybe with the barn to the right or left of the tree, instead of directly behind it.

Peaceful scene! IMHO if you would have stood a little more to your left and use the "farm" background fully it would fee more balanced then having the open area on the left.

really lovely beautiful shot, but I dont think it fits well with the theme. I know the tree is in the foreground, but since the barn is so in focus, I cant even say which is the true subject of this photo.

I really, really like this. Love the muted colours of the barn and all the white snow around.

The tree is nice and sharp. I really like the glow from the snow. I wonder how this would have benefited from a slightly shallower depth of field. I like it.
