In this photograph there are multiple constellations and deepsky astronomical objects. Above the barn is the constellation of Orion the Hunter, whose belt is formed by 3 stars in a nearly vertical line. Below his belt is the Great Orion Nebula, which is an active location of star formation. Above Orion is a V shaped grouping of stars that makes up the head of Taurus the Bull. Directly above Taurus lies the Pleiades, which looks like a small sickle.
