The softness and feeling of stillness you achieved is wonderful, Jo Ann. I am loving seeing everyone's version of this barn. I've never before had the opportunity to see what others take away from a single subject like this. It's a great pleasure to do that.

I like the filtering you did here Jo Ann. the lighting works well in the foreground but you need to clean it up around the sides and top of the building as it looks odd there. the sky appears very noisy and could do with a bit of attention. Well worth doing some more work on the image as it is a delightful in every other way.

Wonderful composition JoAnn. I like your use of negative space to give the old granary maximum focus.

(FYI: This is not a barn. It is a granary for storing grain, corn etc. The machine on the side is an elevator which is used to carry the grain up into the bins. The doors on the end open so that a wagon can be pulled under the bins for unloading the stored grain.)
