I think this came out ok, the weather was real bad. Wish I could had taken a couple of days to look around, I live in old small town outside the big city, there are alot of old barns and structures like this one. One of those shots taken couple hours before the challenge, had to crop it as is, to much distracting objects around. I tried to crop out as much of the white sky as poss............Thanks.......ace

Nice choice for B&W, though could have benefitted from being a little sharper.
Still a nice shot regardless.

I feel this framing is much too tight. One especially misses the rightmost part of the roof which is missing. In addition I'd love to see the rest of the tree on the right.
Actually I believe you should be much further away from the building and should have included the whole building in the shot together with its enviroment.
However, if you wanted to get a tight framing of the house I think it would have been better to shoot it straight on, either the front face or the side of the house.

I also notice you seem to have had a problem with sky as it is pure white on this photograph. Now, my picture in this entry had the same problem with the sky so I waited for a few days until the weather got better and went back for a reshoot. I don't know whether it was possible in your case but it is at least something to keep in mind for future shoots.

There is a tad too little contrast in the picture for my taste. Some use of levels, curves and unsharp mask (try 20%, 50.0 and 0 as a starting point) would have helped this pictured a lot.

The contrast in this photo has made it look a little OoF. I also find that there is something blurry in the bottom right corner that is very distracting. Perhaps this building shot from a different angle would have done better for my vote. Good luck in this challenge.

Pity about cutting of the right edge of the roof, would have thought it better further away as well...
