I bet a nice toned B&W would really make it pop.  The yellow leaves draw away form the image IMO.

Sure, a B&W version would make a great image, but these colors are also very interesting although the barn is either too dark or too big and that makes a big black zone which is a little distracting IMO. Maybe this wouldn't hurt in the B&W version.

Agreed.  I made the barn dark on purpose initially, but I really feel the unbalance now.  Here is an alternative version, bracketed and combined, from a different angle:



I wish I had bracketed the first shot, because there's just too much noise in the shadows to make the barn look good.  I like the way the branches protrude through the smoke in the original.  I suppose some free transformation gymnastics could combine the best elements of each.

The color of the barn in the 2nd definitely adds to the shot and works much better with the leaves.

The crop of the 2nd isn't very good though - try cropping in from the left a lot more.

Let's try this:



Much better, I think.  I still miss the branches in the original, though.  I'll have to go back and get more shots, if the barn is still firing.
