Hmmm... you could, but I don't know that it would have the same effect (R-L readers exempted).  All well done, anyway, but #2 is my favourite.

Maybe, Slobodan. Reads better L-->R?
OTOH I like how the original opens L-->R.

Thanks, Mike!

#2 is my favorite, too. #3 and #1 are also nice (I'd like to see #3 flipped, for comparison).

In #2, I'm a little surprised that nobody on LuLa has complained about the verticals not being vertical. But I think the way they lean toward each other (in the image) is very attractive, and I wouldn't change a thing.

Second is favorite and as to the bent walls, I just figured it was old and failing.

That is perfectly plausible, and personally I don't care whether the effect was natural or the product of clever post-processing. In any case, it suggests the old folks are having a conversation, and I really like it!

Yeah, I was expecting this to come up. Because these structures have probably had no maintenance for decades, I suspect there are no verticals anywhere. Here are the same buildings from the other side.

Thanks, Chris and Eric.

They're nice from that side, too. But I prefer the first post (#2).

The flipped version doesn't work as well as the original, which I like a lot.

Scott - like 2 and 3...don't think the tankers in 1 are that interesting or compelling as subjects. On #2...I would consider pulling up the shadows a bit (was barn in bg one you posted before??). #3 - reminded me of something a photographer I used to work for would tell me when I showed him a shot I had taken on fly handheld or similar..."You needed a ladder!"...to which I would say I just hopped out of the car and...to which I would get..."you needed a LADDER!!"...I would laugh and walk away. To wit.  I think this image "might've" have been better had camera been elevated about 3'-4' or so more to get more of the fields in view...that said...we don't always have ladders on hand...something to consider though /B

Thanks, Brandt. Yes, that's the same barn I posted in June. A print of it is going into a charity auction. It could be lightened a little, but too much and it seems to be glowing from an inner source.

Ladder... not the first time I've received this suggestion here on Lula. I can see the need.

Alternatively I could put the camera on a tripod on the car roof and run it via wifi. If I could get the wifi to work. But that's another thread.

Number two is excellent.  The others are merely nice.  Number two has excellent balance of light and dark.  The shadows are intriguing.  I like the juxtaposition of the textured gray wood against the smooth, dark blue sky.  the vertical lines are straight enough for me.  It might be interesting to see if a warp of that wall would further strengthen the image. 

I am surprised at the suggestion to flip the last one.  I am usually a strong proponent of using post processing make the image match your experience/vision, but personally I never consider flipping an image.  There is no reasonable concordance between your experience of a moment in time and a flipped image....unless, perhaps, if you take a mirror around with you, but that would be absurd. Huh

Thanks, Marc. I would have liked #2 to have more horizon and Belt of Venus so that the buildings were smaller in the Emptiness. But there was a hedge on the right.

I like it flipped a little better...may be cultural...don't know.  A further thought about that though...Rembrandt among many many others... using etching techniques (drypoint, acid, or other)...was essentially always working on an image on copper plate...that when printed would be in fact...flipped horizontally. Rembrandt.
