Saw this barn while driving though rural SW Wisconsin. This is a 7 image HDR converted to BW and edited on Photoshop. Would love to get some CC and feedback

Hey Greg, this works for me, looks like you slowed down the shutter from the clouds in the sky.

It looks like barn and silage is leaning to the right, may try to get it more upright.

It would be cool it you could remove the tree in front of silage storage.

I like your PP on the barn, but the sky looks messy to me. Not sure if it wouldn't be better in color. The blocks at the base of the barn look like maybe a tad too much sharpening has been applied, but I'm not feeling that anywhere else in the image, so maybe they are just that jagged. Critique aside, a well done composition.

It looks good to me too; but I'd try tweaking it a bit to see if you could pull out more detail in the shadows of the interior of the barn.

First of all, its a great old barn with interesting textures and lines - I love old barns. Second, I like the composition and point of view. The line of the roof helps draw the viewer's eye into the image. The B&W conversion is very nice with contrast that seems just right. The soft sky helps to emphasize the detail and textures of the structure. I agree with the previous poster that it seems to be leaning just a bit.

All in all, a very nice shot seems to tell a compelling story of the passing years. Well done!

I love this image. It works for me. My only other comment is that it looks a tad bit over sharpened.

Thanks for the direct feedback, I often miss the obvious after looking at an image too long. All too often they look better in my mind than they do on my screen.

I like it. It has that effect that seems as if someone drew it with pencil on paper.
