Thank you Tony, I agree about how some simple things end up being aesthetically impressive. We are lucky here to have a sort of vernacular architecture that seems to blend well with the farm landscapes. Unfortunately a lot of rail fences are disappearing and are replaced by metal post and wire ones.

I like the mild, even high key tonality, the solitude, the all around mood of depth and infinity...can't express myself, but I like it a lot!


Cheers, Arthur!

Very nice B&W shoot,  IMHO, the left 1/4 not  necessary for the composition and the square  format  would  increase  the  overall  impact of  the image.

Bela, thanks for taking the time to view my photo and your critique. Reframing the image gives it a very different composition and overall effect when considering the main subjects or intent of the image to be simply the shed and the rail fence. However, what I intend by the image was not just that but primarily an evocation of the expanse and lonely ambience of this probably marginal bit of farmland. Contrary to it being unnecessary, the left side is quite important for me. I wanted the shed to be in the middle of the frame to underscore its isolation or questionable function. I might have made the photo from a greater distance if other physical constraints (another building) had not prevented me from doing that. The rail fence is a secondary subject providing an age reference to the farmland but I think that if it was not there the effect I was aiming and the meaning of the image would still be retained.


Again, thanks for your comment, which is appreciated and that shows that differing meanings can be taken from any one photograph.
