If Paul Simon really did own a Nikon camera this might be his photo/lyrics.

An attempt at something different, bt in my opinion, you have not managed to pull it off...........

Just comes off looking a bit odd to me. Not quite sure what the issue is or is not for me.

I love the concept and the title. But, for me, the execution just didn't quite get there. Not sure why, but there are a couple of things that work against you with this composition. In the central 3 panes, you've chopped off the top of the "arch", yet at the bottom of each, the entire arch is present, plus some additional unidentifiable "stuff" - generally it is better to balance - if you chop the top, chop the bottom too. Also, IMO, the left and right of the three panels distract - especially the left, which appears like it has lots to look at but, upon closer examination, does not. Plus, the right 4 sections of the picture are approximately the same width, but the area to the left is about 1/2 again as wide.
Again, I love the concept and the title. I also like that the porch could be in perfect condition, but the distortions in the center 3 panels makes it look to be in decay. 4

I think that this image is creative and interesting, but the rural, and decay aspects are unclear to this viewer......4

Interesting perspective, maybe even old, leaded glass, but this suggests rural relaxation more so than decay to me.

Very interesting image - a nice break from (the fine examples of) rusting farm machinery.
