Bynx,
The lighting is one of the most striking things abouttyese photos. Your exposure to capture te lighting making them appear incredibly welcome.
Great job.

Hi Bynx

I really appreciate the 'open feeling' and 'homely nature' of this shot. Definitely makes me want to go to the door and knock and say hello! The 3 story home looks very stately, and a solid yet practical family home. Is this a 'common' house in your street?

For some reason one of the first things that caught my eye/attention is the gradient in brightness of the 'right side of the house'. The difference in lightness (on the stone brickwork) between the right and left of the tree puzzles me... not sure if it is an effect of post processing - or something else that causing that (eg another tree in a distance?) The photo also looks a bit soft (but that might be my work monitor... I'm writing this in my lunch break).

Having said that as my only 'criticisms', here are some things I really like about the photo:
- the lead in lines (both the path / mown grass and driveway) are fantastic!
- the final remaining orange leaves add such a lovely bright feel (and yes, I realise it's autumn / fall there)
- the porch area (near the tree with orange leaves) adds interest
- very well exposed

Thanks for sharing, Bynx

Yes, I will share a few photos of homes in my street. Actually I plan to do that this evening when I go home (there's a very soft light / overcast but not raining day). There are some interesting 'developments' in my street, that make it worth a photo of two! Thanks Bynx, for asking!

I also hope to share a few typical Aussie (perhaps 'unusual' to some) aspects of 'in my street' too during this challenge.

Best regards, my friend.

Paul

Good eye Paul. Im not sure what is going on with the right side of the house. There seems to be some kind of shadow behind the tree. But I dont think there is anything around to cause that shadow. I will check the files right after CSI Miami.

While I like the daytime picture of the house, it's a lovely house and your photograph is very good at depicting that, I still love the night one better. The house is obviously lovingly maintained, but I have to ask - is that a tarp instead of a garage door? Or is it some type of protection on the door? I wondered about it, I would have expected to see the perfect barn-door style of doors, to match the lovely garage. Sure wouldn't mind living there, it's quite charming.

I have no idea what that blue tarp is doing over the door of the garage. Its covering and protecting something. The guy who owns the home is upstairs very ill and his wife has not been very talkative when I asked her about shooting the house.
