Good shots. I love how you did the first one with the cotton (?) in the foreground.

Yes, the white in the foreground looks great.

I thought the forum was "crying wolf" when it said the URL changed and I ignored it. The last time the forum went down, it displayed the same message but it was a falsehood!

These are both great shot. The first might be improved somewhat by cropping out some of the white flowers in the foreground (not all of them). The patch of white draws my eyes away from that minefield of a barn. I don't think I would go anywhere near that thing!

I love this picture, and want to stand (carefully) in the crop.

Following Cal's suggestion I tried cropping it to see what happened but everything I did made it worse. I also tried cheating by removing the pole, but that didn't make any significant difference.

Then I noticed a subtlety that helps please the eye. There's a line (or even two), perhaps a furrow originally,in the crop at the bottom right that leads the eye upwards and leftwards in the same general direction as the trees pointing to the sky, so my gaze is led up and across the building. Once I'd spotted that, I realised that unethical removal of the pole was an improvement, because it needs to lean over or be absent.

So equipment for Old Building Challenge photography should include a tripod, a chainsaw, and an accompliceto spot approaching farmers or policemen.

Have fun, Alan T
