My Neighbor's House
Its purposefully overdone so it has more of a painterly look than photographic look. I agree its not for everyone, but I like it.

Actually, it has a nice look and feel to it. Nicely done.

Thanks Walter.

I like it too. It looks like a scene from a children's book. I love the composition.

Thanks smac. I appreciate that.

Definitely works for me, as smac says it has a story book quality.

Thanks Loren. That tree on the right is a black walnut. Every year the whole area is full of big green walnut pods. I collected them once and after they ripened they were really good.

Hi Bynx

The detail and variety of colours, yet balance work well for that 'painted / story book' effect. I like it. The blue of the sky, while quite intense, matches the feel of the house and trees.

The house looks snugly surrounded by all the trees.

Thank you for sharing the story about the walnuts... it brought back childhood memories of collecting and drying walnuts from many years ago!

Nice natural look, Bynx - thanks.

Thanks Paul. The intensity of the sky is a result of the long exposures needed since it was really quite dark out. Its the one big difference between cameras and our eyes. No matter how long we look at something in the dark the image never gets brighter. But a camera builds up the light the longer the shutter is open. So a shot in the dark can look like it was shot in the afternoon.

I also really like it. While this type of processing doesn't particularly work for anything I've taken, this picture shows that it can be very effective at the right time.
