I fine shot - but to be frank, nothing special. Looking at it I find, that it's a bit confusing, what I'm supposed to look at! What the meaning with the river in the foreground.
It can be said in short : you need something to catch the eye!
Technically it's a fine shot with a good DOF, natural colours and fine sharpness. Keep it up!

I thinks it's a rather nice photo, attractive or pleasant are the best words that come to mind. It'll never win any competitions but it's nice.

Klaus is rather more of a perfectionist than most.

Craig,

This is a great photo because it tells a wonderful story if you can
"read the words" about its builder.

First, it is built above 10-15 above the level of a normal creek.

On top of that, it has a stone foundation.

Why? Of course, I do not know but I believe the builder built
it in anticipation of a possible 500 year flood.

Second, if you closely at the "ramp" to the "second floor" you
will see that it was built of flat stones. Imagine now that it
was built by hand...one wagonload of heavy stones at a
time. The "ramp" is a great energy and time-saving device.

Third, look at the small ladder on the roof of the small addition
to the barn. It looks to be about an 8 foot ladder. If you do
the math, you realize you are really "up there" as you paint the
peak of this barn.

Fourth, the rake of the metal roof is designed to shed rain
and more importantly, snow loads. Also, the metal roof is easier
to maintain and erect than a shingle roof.

So, in closing I view this photo in admiration of the work ethic and "vision" of its builder.

Thanks much for sharing, Craig.
