Early one very chilly morning. I wanted to capture some of winters long shadows. This is at a historic area near Lexington KY

Nice shadows indeed! And I love how they parallel the creek on the right.

Very nice. Considerate of them to build the fence parallel to the creek.
I might crop 15% of the top to help emphasize the shadows.

Agreed.

Furthermore, do you have another composition that puts the Springhouse more off-centre? The shadows are amazing, but the viewer's eye is drawn to the lighter sunlit building making it a bit of a bullseye. To me, anyway, this reduces the potential movement in the photograph.

Terry, I do agree with your thoughts but...
I am working on a series of historic and old barns in Kentucky. I have a market for that type if images and I am personally interested in them.
So this shot is more about the structure with the shadows being secondary. I did look moving to the left or right but there was not a "perfect" spot. This is one of those compromises we all make. Thanks
