Taken along a country road here in Kansas.
Thanks for looking.

Very soothing and beautiful tones, not to mention the lovely composition. I love it!

Such an appealing image indeed! Ah, the cloud above with the head of a galloping horse almost represents the spirit of the exquisite piece of lanscape you captured!

Btw, I'd like to add that having visited your gallery 'Kansas' which includes this photo, I was impressed by 'Old farmstead in rural Kansas' with soft focus and in sepia reminding me some artistic works of the calotype period...

Thank you bahadir.....I love capturing the old buildings in rural Kansas. The sepia tone just fit the building I thought.

The only thing I see that bothers me a little is the right hand hay bale. The top edge is too close to the horizon line. It would have looked better had it been either above or below, preferably above so there is more 3 dimensional quality to it. Other than that nit picking little thing, great shot.

Not nit picking at all......appreciate the critique. Thanks for your comments and stopping by.

this is very nice image. i agree that lifting the bale above the horizon helps give it a little more depth. it was already in a good position in the frame, but moving it just above the horizon made a nice difference for me. great shot!

I agree with this and thank Bynx for bringing it to my attention. I am working harder at trying to get subjects in the foreground in my landscapes and this information on the horizon part helps me understand more. Thanks for stopping by.
