    Thank you for your additional information! I should have seen that. Congrats on your top ten finish.

    thanks all. jomari, you got it just right. Could have mentioned in the extra info section that this great old barn is soon destined to be demolished and surrounding region is slated to become a development of some sort. I have spent a fair amount of time in and around the structures still standing there. My shot was indeed intended to capture the passage of time and the associated impermanence.

    A photo is usually a static capture of a tiny moment. This suggests the ephemeral nature of our comings and goings. Nicely done.

    this is great. was it moonlight or heavily filtered sun? i'm guessing sun as i see no stars. (i've done some long exposures under moonlight that with editing look like daylight but have some stars visible also)
cheers.

    A nicely executed long exposure shot. I assume you used an ND filter. But as a self-portrait I think your ghostly self seems oddly out of place in a high contrast image.

    A powerful image. For my part it encapsulates a feeling of rural America. It would make a good cover for a steinbeck novel.

    A really nice shot, the barn (?) and the sky is very interesting. I wish you were not so transparent. In my TT

    Nicely done. You look like the ghost who haunts the barn....
