The Barbarian,

That is really some building and a great depicturing of the building 1913 you say. Well, the architect behind it must have ...

Yes, filling up the frame is a virtue, not only in folk art where the "Horror vacui" plays an important role

Like the flat light. It gives more reality and less tourism to it. (And no Coca-Cola vending machine :-)

The bottom one is an HDR. The top one, because the street in front of the church is so narrow, had to be stitched together from six partial shots of the facade.

So, maybe that wasn't a bad thing.

It shows! Looks nicely dimensional...ah, considering also the rustic architecture.
I think the image can benefit from selecting the background foliage to increase the green against magenta a bit more than 10% and clonning out the wire.

Nicely done. I find it amazing that the church is located in Iowa and dates from 1913. It looks as if it should be in England an date from 1650 instead.
