I alway find scenes like this rather sad. The remnants of dreams of people long gone. Nice composition.

Too many unnecessary elements in the photo, plus a "blah" sky. Would have been better had you moved closer -- less sky and perhaps some branches from the tree on the left.

I consider suchplaces with ruinsturned into a part of the landscape as bonus while hiking!

As for composition, I'm with Walter. Some sky recovery, cropping and foreground levels adjustment would work, imo. Actually I had made the version below much earlier today when I first saw that picture, but did not have time to post!

Hi, Many thanks for the C&C.
Yes the sky is not very good maybe a Pol filter would have made a difference, the sun was nearly gone very low in the sky from the right.
If i had moved in closer then the small rock in the foreground would be gone and I tried to place something else apart from the house in the photo.
I will return and try again.
Again thanks for the C&C.
