Utility shed made from hand-hewn logs with dove-tail joint mating at corners. Circa 1840.. Georgia. Moved and now located at the Ante-bellum Plantation exhibition at Stone Mountain, Ga. It sits in the farm-yard next to the carraige house. Please download for best view and vote it honestly if you chose to vote using any grading system you chose as it's all subjective to what you see and feel when you look at any photo. To follow Graham's lead I personally put as much priority on POTD as I do having a spot of bird pooh on the wind-shield of my working pick-up truck. A spade is a spade..!! haha

I'm sure many would crop out the barrel on left but.. not this ole country boy. If you ever made an oak staved barrel from steamed oak staves you learn to appreciate the beauty and skill involved in steam bending wood. This one is used to catch rain-water

Perhaps a tad more contrast.Still a very nice shot nonetheless.

Hey John, I love the barrel. I would actually love to see more of it. For the purposes of the picture only I would love to see it maybe closer to the corner of the building. I always appreciate good craftsmanship since I have no such skill.

9+ John...........Clean and Sharp. Agree with Dennis on the Contrast.

Very nice John. I do agree with @defer that a boost in contrast would help. Looks hot there.

Adding more contrast as suggested would improve this image a lot John.

Nice shot

Here is a popular saying "Which much includes...little squeezes" I would see a frame centered on the wooden cabin and another day the barrel that is an excellent subject for itself. We also agree with some more contrast to highlight the wood grain.

Thanks everyone.. sounds as if I need more contrast. haha

I can only imagine the work gone into the shed....perhaps a higher black point setting on photomatix ?? or is it contrast needed ??

Nice shot John.

07 Aug 18:36

Agree about the contrast.

Nice and sharp. For me the composition is lacking a little (focal point seems to be between the buildings).

Nice work John, maybe + contrast but it doesn't look to bad on my monitor...
