What a stunner - that crazy X in the sky is the bomb. I'm glad the horse was mesmerized by you and didn't move. And your notes are hilarious.

Your Photographer's Comments are "OK by rules" ...very amusing. Good luck getting your four legged assistant to really assist.

That sky is still amazing.

I might've dodged the horse a bit. Lovely sky. WOW I'd love to see a panoramic view of this.

An absolutely stunning barn shot. The lighting, the tree and the presence of the horse all combine to make this a truly memorable image. Well done indeed.

Really great and a new fave for my growing list. I'm sure I won't be the only one to wow over this, though.

7 - Nice scene, sky is gorgeous. 'If only' a little more light in the fore to bring the horse into play more and, could just be a visual thing, but the land and building looks like it needs a whisker nudge up on the left.

Very nice use of contrails!

The contrails on the right look like search lights! Nicely balanced between light and dark.

That sky is intense. My only criticism is the halo around the barn.
