Ooo, wow. Interesting topic. Love the black and white and the leading lines. I wonder what it would look like if cropped into a portrait removing the left side. The horizon is a tad bit distracting to me. Having trouble with which line was straighten. Love this photo as I wonder who the guy is. Did he own the farm? Local businessman? Politician? What's in the future for him or for us? Leaving viewer with questions and wanting more of the story. Nice. Very.   Posted: 08/10/2019 11:39:09

I could look at this image for a long time. The leading lines made by the railroad track are great. I get drawn into the image on the silo and wonder about that man. Nice job.   Posted: 08/10/2019 16:43:18

This is a really nice formal study of the scene. I think I see that you altered the vertical perspective to remove the convergence of vertical lines from tilting the camera upwards. I normally advise everyone not to do that for two reasons: 1) the convergence is what your eye (and the camera) actually see--there is no distortion; 2) I like the soaring effect on tall buildings. HOWEVER, I think you made the right choice here, to shoot like an architectural photographer. This is a great composition. Congratulations.   Posted: 08/11/2019 18:09:49
