Thanks for all the great comments!

What I find truly amazing about how well this did for me is the fact that in a challenge which allowed me to choose from all the shots from 2006, I pick one from the very last day of the year....

Oooh, I love this. Great lighting effects, and the perspective makes one wonder if it is a scale model or a life-size barn. Well done!

Mysterious and gloomy in an artful sort of way. Rich in implicit subject but lacking in an overt point of focal interest. 8.

01/12/2007 08:06:27 PM
very dramatic. Could do very well here. Alittle overdone for my tastes, but well executed.

Wowsers!! Maybe overprocessed for some peoples taste, but I am really digging it. I just spent several minutes viewing this awesome image. A really great composition. A highly interesting subject. Great detail, and totally stunning colors and tones. A very engaging piece, it totally draws me in and holds me. Great work, thank-you!
