barn pic--would you "use" this?

I had my 50mm out one day while we were driving on the highway and was doing quick shots of the great barns we have out here in the area.
I liked how this one came out looking like a painting. But I know the median barrier is muffing up the bottom of the pic. LOL

Would you crop this and consider it print-worthy, or would you scrap it, if it was yours?
Or is the crop (which was in-camera) too tight already?

The black edges are still there from when I rotated the pic slightly.

It was a challenge getting shots in while poles & wires were NOT in view! lol

I like it Amy. Of course, I would edit out the bottom railing, but I think it's gorgeous! Think you could go do a photo shoot there? That would be awesome!

I second that a photo shoot there would be so neat! Love all those windows!

bummer about the barrier! but I think it is lovely, and it looks like a painting to me too. Smile

That would be so cool if I could! I have no clue who owns it, it is along an interstate. But now that you mention doing a shoot like that I might be able to find one closer to home....we know many farmers around here because of the work we do at my job.

I'll try to crop out the barrier. I just wish I had had a little more room around the barn. But with the 50mm I was lucky to get the whole barn in lol

EDIT: Here's the cropped-out-barrier-version....straightened just a touch more too...I wish the pic wasn't so tight on the scene but it couldn't be helped at the time lol

great job cropping out the barrier! so you just pulled over on the interstate and took it? I've thought about doing that, but I always have kids in the car and think it's not so safe...

Heheh Gwen, this was while DH was driving, and I was in the passenger seat, and I was just shooting as we drove! LOL
