I'd PS the pole/wires out from the back of the barn to clean that distraction out - I think the stack on top is the focal as my eye is drawn to it first - I like it.

thanks for the positive feedback. I hadnt even noticed the pole and wires until you mentioned them. I took them out and re-posted the photo

Yup perfect, I'd love to do some touring and photograph barns, old, new, they are interesting.

Did you by any chance shoot RAW?
There is lot of detail in the sky that is currently blown out. If it could be recovered then I think that would really make this photo more interesting.

the original is RAW. it was a bright but yet totally cloud covered day and even when i try to tone down the exposure in cs4 it still doesnt bring up any more detail. open to advise on bringing out the detail.

Open this with Adobe camera RAW Hit the recovery slider about 20% then increase the saturation a little on the blue channels. it will more than likely help the skies. Or you can open this image with CS4 and create a layer. Mask the sky so you are only working on it. Lower the brightness, up the contrast. I would then get a blue paint brush, select soft light mode and 8% opacity. Paint back over the sky to enhance the natural color. At this point make sure you have the layer selected and not the mask.

I am sure that someone a lot better in photoshop than me will be of more help. Next time try to shoot the seen in HDR. I know it gets a bum rap but there are a lot of natural looking HDR images out there not just the cartoon looking ones. That would have helped you get all of the Dynamic Range in this scene .

This is a really quick " down and dirty" edit just to show the sky detail
This is a 123kb jpeg. a raw file would keep much more of the detail without the side effects.

i see the direction your going in despite the low quality of the jpg. I have been playing in cs4 but havent, myself, come up with a copy that catches those latent colors in the sky. will keep trying. thanks!
