Intersting and intriguing.

What about trying to apply a dodge tool brush to the leaves on the top ?

I love it just as it is. I understand what Sergio is talking about, but to my eye, keeping the leaves dark focuses attention on the cozy feeling of the little building.

'It's absolutely beautiful and so very real. I am thinking of buying a 5700 and this confirms my interest. Somehow it's richer than photos with the 5000 which I presently own.

What settings did you use for this photo? I tend to use idiot settings - ie autofocus. I remember reading about a great and successful fashion photgrapher who always used "idiot settings" so I don't feel too bad about my use. I am more interested in the composition - the painting quality. Your photo has this painterly quality!

:P tnxs!

Hmmm got to dig deep there...
don't remember exactly which settings i've used there...
I'm sure it was automode... but with extra contrast, and the setting for a cloudy day (it wasn't cloudy.. but i like colors in with that setting)

and did a little colorchanges in photoshop... I've made the picture a bit lighter...


but the 5700 is a great camera..
don't regret it for one bit!

Hi Melanie__

Thank you posting this photo of an old house in your neighborhood

The light is gentle, filtered with the trees. Your photo "speaks"
of a peaceful, quiet, restful place.

It makes me recall my late grandfather, who emigrated from
"Sicilia" to the USA. He worked many, many years as a
mason, a "bricklayer" as called by others.

There is still a small brick home in his old neighborhood
in NY state. He built by hand. Brick by brick.

As I see the lines in the walls of your old house, I imagine and "see" my late grandfather fully engaged in the art, craft and
profession of a mason.
