    Absolutely stunning! I love the colors, and the softness. Did you use a diffuser or was the effect applied afterwards in PS? I would love to see this one hanging on my wall! Wonderful!

Man this made me weak in the knees, I would give anything for a shot like this. The Barn is very well placed in the image, and the colors are just beautiful. I also like the dreamy look you have here. One outstanding image.

Thank you everyone for the positive comments! The soft focus effect is from Dream Suites "Dreamy" filter. I have to confess that this photo was actually taken by me while sitting in the passenger side of my car, shot through the open drivers side window. We were stuck in traffic and if we wouldn't have been, I never would have noticed the barn way back in a field. I'm obsessed with barns and old building so anytime I see one, I have to photograph it. I wish I could say it was planned but life just works in a funny way I guess and it pays to have your camera close by at all times!

I can always tell by how long the list of congratulations is that it's a definite WINNER amongst the popular student body! Well done, Lori - computer filter or diffusion filter, it works and it's lovely. Amen to traffic jams (now and then, anyway!)
