Wow ! What incredible work ! There is something rather endearing about this barn, and the way the light is hitting it is really beautiful, but the clouds overhead and the haze in the background seem positively menacing, like something out of a horror movie. There's a very interesting dynamic happening here.

Compositionally, this photo works very well. I love that the movement of the clouds lead my eyes inwards, and that rather than placing the barn in the center, you've left it onto one side. You've also got the "rule of thirds" down very well - the fact that the division between ground and sky is not smack in the middle shows that you have an eye for good composition and you know how to emphasize your subject. I also like that the trees in the background seem to be slanted at a bit of an angle. There is really this sense of unease about this photo, and I quite like it.

One suggestion I would make is to change up the bit of blue sky peeking through the center of the clouds. This is the one thing that ruins the ominous mood you've created, and doesn't fit in quite well with the rest of the color scheme. Otherwise, this is a brilliant photo.
