    My pick is "Moulton Barn at Sunrise". I like the barn a lot and the time chosen to photograph is excellent. My only critique is I would have liken to see the foreground a little bit brighter.

    I'm shooting through my sliding door window in these shots. I try to keep it reasonably clean to avoid affecting the image. I'm typically ~ 15 ft away.
