This is a famous barn in our area, and probably the most photographed barn in the state of Utah. They just repainted it, which is both good and bad, since it was fun when it looked all weathered. But every 5 years or so they repaint it. When I went to take the shot, the barn door was open, eliminating the "tion." So when I asked permission to take photos of the barn, I also asked if I could shut the door.

Hey, when you come to visit, we'll go photograph the barn again!

Cache Valley is so beautiful. I grew up in SLC and we used to take weekend drives out there. Funny though, I don't remember ever seeing this barn. Next time I come down to visit the family, I'll have to drive out there and find it.

Absolutely stunning view. Perfect postcard. If I HAD to make a suggestion, I'd suggest to try toning the clouds down slightly, as they might be just a bit bright, otherwise, excellent shot. The angle and framing/cropping is good, as is the focus and clarity. Great find. ~Heather~

I like how the building mimics the shape of the mountains behind it, lovely composition, though the building is a bit darker than I would have liked. Probably because of the bright whites in the sky and mountains.

I love it! The way that rooftop mirrors the mountain is really appealing, and the text, "WOMANS TONIC" is just hilarious. What a funny card! I'd buy it!

Good postcard, the clouds in the sky are beautiful! Two small comments: (1) I find the words at the bottom a bit hard to read (they get lost on my screen); (2) The mountains/clouds look almost too sharp to my eye (again, might be my screen). Good work! ~8

very nice shot. looks like you had to boost the contrast just a tad too much but its tough when you have part in the shade and part in the sun.

Excellent composition. The elements all came together for you. The roof line of the building mirrors the moutain range nicely. 10 -danny

Text to too light and delicate for the masculine mountains. The shot is just fantastic..beautiful light/clouds.

The mountains and sky are very eye catching sadly though the structure seems to be lost in darlness after all the light at the top of the photo. Also the font you chose seems to be too fine and just kind of blends in with the border. Your focus however is great everything seems to be in very sharp focus. This one is hard to score cause it has both its good and bad points.

Beautiful picture. The sky looks a slight bit over exposed compared ot the ground. but not too bad. I like the border on this, adn the text is very suiting. Well done.
