    Pretty cool shot. At some point during the day, that shadow will fall between the large and small window instead of right over the small one and it might be even better when it does.

    Thank you Barefoot for the comment. I never thought about trying it at a different time. It's only a couple minutes walk from my house so I'll check it out at different times. Thanks for the suggestion.
    Have a great day!

    BF's suggestion is good for sure.

    i quite like this image for the graphic quality.
    Since you are okay with critique, the image doesn't appear to be 'straight'.
    To my eye the whole image slopes clockwise by about .5 to 1 degree. My eye wants to see those dotted lines in the structure be straighter.
    Some rotating and lens correction play could help here imo.
    Hope that may help

    Really like this one Lorey, and would also love to see another with the shadow position as BF suggested.

    Thanks Marko and HBG. Yes Marko, I agree it is very slightly tilted. I have a hard time getting my shots level, although I'm a little better at it than I used to be. I think a lot of it is lens distortion. I've played with one image in the past on lens correction and it took me almost forever. I'm not very good at it. Maybe I'll take some time and practice on this one latter. This was taken very late in the evening and the sun was almost on the horizon to project the shadow the way it did. I'll have to try and catch the sun at different times and see where the shadow might land. Thank you both again.
    Have a great day!

    No prob Lorey - You likely know that anytime the camera is not parallel to the subject, distortion is an issue.

    So the next time the camera is pointed slightly upwards to get the whole shot, try zooming out or backing up a bit.
    That way, you can correct this in post processing with lens corrections and the cropping that usually accompanies the correction.

    Thanks Marko. Sounds like a great tip. My next trip to the barn I'll keep that in mind.
    Have a great day!

    I try to keep an 8' step ladder in the bed of my truck. It gets me up there enough to help sometimes and I've only had one of them stolen from me.

    Umm, I think it is a wide angle thing, Marko.The dotted lines on the right appear to be straight, which leads me to believe it is a lens thing and the only way to correct that is by using the lens correction or distorting the image afterward.

    I like the image the way it is; yes, there is always another time and a better opportunity to shoot it with the shadow being in between the windows, but seriously, for me this does not have to be. Chances are the the shadow then will interfere with the window on the left (top portion). So it is six of one, half a dozen of another.
