I was out washing and waxing my dads Suburban as a fathers day suprise and I saw the sunset was creating some cool colors so I left the truck and took off to a barn I had seen a couple days ago. i decided to do HDR to try and get the full range of what I saw, I then converted to B&W. Heres the color and B&W version
The barn is situated on a bit of a hill so it looks a bit weird.
C&C always welcome

Based on the exposure you have shown, I'm not sure that HDR was necessary for this image.
A spot metering on the right part of the image could have produced a similar result in exposure.
I will saythis though, I do applaud you for not "overcooking" the HDR and tone mapping.

I used to overcook my HDR attempts before I realized the true purpose for them. They reason I did an HDR is becuase when i got home I realized I shot this at either -1 or +1 I didnt hit the exposure correctly so I figured I'd use the HDR to get it right.

The balance of the shot is pretty good - maybe a touch more contrast in the tree - and it conveys the time of day (and the subject very well. Is it common to have a cross on the top of a barn Greg? Is it a reflection of the religious persuasion of the owner, or simply I lightning conductor?

I beleive the Cross is a little of both, lightning and religious beleif. Not sure how old the barn but judging by where I found it it dates back to the early 1900's
