An unwanted opening on an old barn had been covered with a piece of aluminum, apparently to keep the adverse weather out. But for my picture, I found the pale color distracting from the colored wood textures and damaged area below it.
It looks like it could use a little more patching.

Done to a budget!

Avc la neige et le gel en fond quel rendu sur ce vieux bois ussé par le temps, superbe.

it cries out to have something written on it Don.:) Lovely lichen and distressed wood

yes i agree, the timbers are well weather worn and attractive, not so the metal patch...

A quirky image with the metal panel - the contrast with the wood shows that age and weathering creates its own special beauty.

I agree that the patch spoils the decaying wood imagery, yet it illustrates the lengths people will go to to avoid the real work of fixing something. I also like the faded grass and patchy snow at the foot of the barn.

Wow extraordinaire réparation !...
L'amour des textures différentes))

Great capture of the decayed wood and the patch. The patch is not looking so good in the image here. Wonderful texture and detail. Excellent shot. :)

Superb textures in this shot, although the patch does not really fit, it does seem to make it more real if you know what I mean !

At first I thought it was an ad. Nice shot.

Great textures of wood . Superb framing !
4 Feb 2012 4:36pm
This image is a very interesting, both for the unusual subject for the excellent quality of the photo, great job!

I love the rough texture and the fine patina of age on this old fence! Nicely captured Don! ;-)
4 Feb 2012 5:30pm
Superb textures, very nice job with capture and focus!
Excellent shot Don, well done
4 Feb 2012 6:11pm
It makes for an interesting shot, though, just for how odd it is. A makeshift bandage.
4 Feb 2012 6:13pm
love the presentation and the mood
4 Feb 2012 8:29pm
Good capture. Looks cold out there. Our weather is warming up, but we'll be getting rain Tuesday.
4 Feb 2012 9:10pm
Ooooo... The colors of the wood so beautiful in color and weathered!
Have a nice sunday
4 Feb 2012 10:29pm
Beautiful detail and colors!

Great frame of the fence with the snow covered grass, love the textures.

I like the way they tucked the metal under the board. The lichen is growing on the boards it seems.

I like the contrast between the old and new. Following up on what you said about the patch distracting you from the area below it, I scrolled to the area below the patch, leaving out the patch all together. I thought it would make a lovely shot as well, with it cropped to leave out the top half with the patch.

@B. Thomas: I have a version that eliminates the patch...probably should have posted it! :-) Thanks for commenting.
...well, don, call it 'art'...and a bit of snow too! Nice work, don. ;OD
5 Feb 2012 3:50am
the owner must've been in a hurry to patch this up.. :) nice catch..
5 Feb 2012 6:39pm
It sure does clash with its surroundings!
7 Feb 2012 7:17pm
The patch isn't very attractive in and of itself but I think it adds to the photo.
