Carol Teal September 07, 2006

Steve, I just came across your finalist! A belated congrats to you! Well-deserved! This is a beautiful image and your effects are perfect. It makes me think of The Wizard of Oz before Dorothy and Toto were whisked away by the storm. :) #3277179

Steve Rice September 08, 2006

Carol, Thank you, I hope you're doing well.. #3283218

September 22, 2006

First of all, Steve, I checked out your gallery and there are some really nice pix, especially rural scenes. That said, and I hope you take this constructively, I have to totally disagree with the rest of the comments on this page as to the merit of this image. While the old barn is nice, it obviously does not have the same lighting as the fake sky, nor does the sky blend in at all well with the trees, particularly on the left side. It's just one person's opinion, but I think your work is best served when you stick with reality... #3347499

Kathy Radford November 18, 2006

Excellent shot. I have a passion for old barns and old buildings. This one is perfect. You have such a wonderful gallery Steve, I love all your shots. Keep up the superior work. Kathy in NH #3600155
