Default Grey stone house-front with autumm-veil:

Early, early in the morning - the sun had just broken trough as I went for HDR-motive-hunting...

I just could not resist this house-front as it had such a lovely autum-vail of brightly coloured leaves as make-up. Annoyingly there was a rather large "For Rent"-sign in white and blue plastic all over the front further up towards 2nd floor, so I had to crop tightly on top.

I like this shot. I wish the top of the crest over the door could be seen in total, but I also notice some shadows starting up there so I imagine your crop had to end somewhere. But a nice pleasant scene. Id like to see it in early evening when the sun has just gone over the horizon. Inside lights on and outside light over the door burning.

Yes, Bynx - I would have loved to include the crest, but as I said, this "#%&@!!!" For Rent-sign was too big! As you can see, the sign just touched the top of the crest!

This is the house seen from the side. Its actually a lovely old stone building. It used to be the local "Customs and Excise"-office, but now they have moved to a modern office-building. Its nicely situated, close to the water.

Enjoy

I dont suppose you have the shot uncropped and a bit of the sign showing. The whole crest must also be showing.

hahaha I didnt notice your nice cloning job of the sign ropes. I see the top of the sculpture over the door doesnt seem to be complete and is covered by the sign. Too bad. I was thinking of just cloning out the sign.

you did a rather nice job of cloning out the ropes. so i think you made the most of what you had to work with.

you could always use a tree trimmer on a pole thing. that would eliminate the need for a step ladder
