Great perspective and composition. I like the yellow sign reflecting the yellow road sign

There are very few of these types of barns in australia, it's a shame, i love them.

Nice. I like the way this straight road sort of angles into the distance and draws the eye along its way. The sign on the right side post is the real "counterpoint" of interest for me, but the barn just anchors the whole scene.

Beautiful barn; beautiful capture. I'm guessing there might be a school bus stop nearby? Love the shot.

@sherri: No school bus stops along here, Sherri - the road is too small to bother. It runs straight as a string with nary a rise nor fall for just over 4 miles. About 10 farms along the entire length of road. The road is so narrow that a school bus would pretty well block the whole shebang.

Very nice POV looking along the road, the barn really dominates the whole scene.

Nicely composed interesting barns, and the road continues on till out of view, the yellow sign does seem out of place and hence makes the shot more interesting
