Oh, sweet! 4th place HM for my profile page.

Thank you, everyone. This is an old shack smack dab in the middle of the lawn of a high-tech dairy farm...I came across it on a cloudy afternoon, and as I was taking some images, the sun peeked out for just a moment. I think that piece of fortune lends to the detail and the contrast between the sky and the subject.

Post processing was fairly simple...no crop(!), unsharp mask, hue/sat adj layer for the dutone, levels, curves, border.

seriously post-challenge:

yay! validated, too!

Beautiful shot, nice composition, and mother nature really came through with the sky. To my eye the building seems a bit oversharpened agains the softness of the sky.
