Saw this slightly burnt out run down barn when I took a different route home from work.

There was a road right in front, so I had to do some cropping to remove the road. I should have spend more time composing the image, but I was in a bit of a hurry.

I suspect there will be quite a few sepia/black and white moody images in this challenge.
I have decided on a slightly oversaturated approach.
Let's see what others think....

Equalized image then used a combination of colour adjustment, and hue/saturation to develop colour tones.
Neat Image,
Slight rotation
Cropped ,USM then sized for DPC

The roof color and the sky colors make a good combination.

Nice composition, though sky looks a little washed out?

I don't really get the title. Do you mean that it's a nice house kit as in airplane model kit and such?
Anyway, I like the green color on the ground and the building is somewhat interesting. The sky looks a bit strange and is a tad too blue, I think.
I like the composition though I'd peronally probably have tried a shot with a longer lens and from a greater distance.

Nice colors, would have seemed washed out in B&W. Good clarity. Good angle.
