I agree with the comment re. a spooky feel. Good for Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol!"

I guess you guys had pretty odd upbringing. I cant see anything spooky about this place at all. Can you explain why you think it looks spooky? Does snow help any? The house owner asked me to come back when the first snow fell.

Hello Bynx!

I had a perfectly normal upbringing and me too, I think your first picture has some "Old English"kind of "Charles Dickens" and slightly spooky atmosphere. The second one with newly fallen snow and a bluer tint is much more Christmassy!

Best regards,
Walter_S

The only thing I can see that I would remotely consider spooky is the lighting on the roof. But to me it reminds me of our old government buildings roofs which look similar with similar lighting. I cant see anything spooky at all. Oh well, I guess spookiness is in the eye of the beholder.

Ok I just asked my kids what they thought and they said it was the lighting on the roof that made it look spooky to them. I guess its just me.

My comment was due to the ashy pale look on the roof and the interior. Also the lawn looks neglected and perhaps dead. On the second image, the blue elements, the snow and mostly the interior lighting convey a very different meaning.

To me, the first image says "Keep Away" or "Enter at your own peril". The second image says, "come on in...have a cup of hot chocolate!"

Thanks for your explanation wingman. Thats why its nice to post stuff here and get feedback so one can see it through others eyes. The two shots were only shot days apart since there was a quick dump of snow overnight.
