"Nice" structures GW: lot's of character. The exposures are perfect. The only suggestion I would make would be to compose using the rule of thirds... it does seem to bring out the best in subjects such as houses and barns!

I agree with Rodney on two counts....excellent series...and number 4 being my favorite. That is a really huge barn with a huge hay loft. It looks a lot like the one my great grandfather had when I was a kid, although his wasn't nearly so large.

GW - looks like some more photos from my neighborhood!

Nice capture of the colors & textures of these fine old structures. I think I agree with Jelpee, especially on the more distant shots that show more of the landscape (like #2 and #4) - a bit "off balance" gives more dynamic feel...

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the comments.
Yes, I realize the composition is lacking in these. It was quite difficult to compose most of the shots I got as they were taken out the window as we drove slowly by, there was just no place to pull over and stop without being a road hazard!
While I could have done much better under more ideal circumstances, I find cropping after the fact a little more daunting so I choose to post as taken. That said, I'd be more than happy if anyone would care to to crop these as they feel inclined and post them. I could use some pointers.

Nice series. This one lends itself to cropping - here is one possibility:

ah, Yes. I like it Pen. I think my problem is, I like too many different aspects of a photo and don't want to lose any of it... I need to learn to compromise.
