Nice one, Russ. I'll even accept the "hand of man" in the form of the barn, which is essential to this shot.
But I might be tempted to "content-aware" remove the telephone poles.

Can I ask why Eric?

Looks like a close contender for the Windows XP screen ;)

Because I don't think they add anything to the image.

But they don't really detract from it either

Agreed. The barn does appear to be in some trouble, though: its roof slopes down to the right  ;)

Looks that way to me too Jeremy, which is strange, since the camera was level according to its internal indicator. So I snapped on the grid in Photoshop and found that the barn actually was a tiny bit on the slope. That's a pretty new barn, so I doubt the roof really is sloping. The only thing I can attribute it to is lens distortion, though that should have been taken care of by the profile correction I gave it in ACR. Ah well, here's a version slightly distorted back the other way to make the roof straight.

Damn, after I posted it I pulled it up from LuLa and it still looks a bit sloped. Well, we'll just accept the idea that the barn slopes.

In New England we have many barns, but I can't remember seeing one that didn't sag or slant to some extent.

Just like people, then?

In which case, you could do 'hand of man' even without man, bearing that relationship in mind. I like that; seems far more simple an option than carting some man around just in the vague hope of using him to lend some vague intrinsic quality to your pictures.

I know how you feel, Russ; it's the onset of the cold season and another damned trip down to Florida...
