Took this photo on a recent holiday to the Hebrides. There was a Corncrake calling on the other side of the wall.

That's a great looking sky you've captured Tony along with some good detail on the wall and stonework of the barn. I feel that the image could do with just a little extra punch re saturation and contrast, done a mod for you. Maybe a different angle with less grass in the foreground might be more appealing but I like the use of the lead-in wall.

loving the sky. looking at my modification it looks quite cold, you may want to make it a bit warmer. all in all i think this is a wonderful picture, but dont forget your post processing =] i always need to, i wish i could aspire to how some photographers can take perfect shots with little need of editing other than a slight change in levels.

The exposure is reasonably good however the composition is pretty shocking. Placing the barn centrally is always going to create some issues unless youve done it for a very specific reason. The main issue of course is leaning over the wall and including that big strip of it into the shot.

It just turns what could have been an acceptable landscape image into a snapshot from your hols. The cloud formation is interesting tho and you have made the most of that ... however if you had taken a bit of time to walk around you would have ended up with a cleaner and therefore better composition.

this has nice elemnets for me and i think a more contrasty black and white image is being called for. the modified black and white needs more dodging and burning for my tastes. also agree with some of culturecanvas points about the composition if you can re-shoot again try using the wall from a higher view point so this can be used more as a lead in line.
good luck

I think you could have improved the composition here by going landscape mose, taking in less of the lead-in wall and ugly grass, and fitting more of that lovely cloud formation, which is chopped off at the edges
