Well thanks, Bynx - and in the moving-process you have made a little crack on the left wing, just above the 1st window - you really ought to be more careful handling old and brittle houses like these...

Looks better now, mind you the street sloped just a bit as well.

Rectifying faulty crops, and learning more about composition all the time, thats what we are here for. Thank you all for participating!!

I was thinking of something like this. I didnt like the trees angling off to the left. Ah, just nitpicking. Nice job Walter.

I aint retired but I have free time being a mother that wants to work but find it hard when I get others following me to place blame and etc on me when I do or tries to at least do that like the last black man that came in right after I had gotten a job in Branson, Mo... and whom was the only other one in the tiller at the time that stole money and blames it on me so he can step up? what the heck was that David.....them Mexicans and them Blacks seem to have something going alright.....but I know it is not all of them trying to bring the whites down.... excuse me cause I have some one looking in on my issues that maybe should not be looking in at my issues....

BTW, this is actually a continuation from the thread: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/cr...-backyard.html
And this picture shows that its getting later in the evening, the sun barely touching the roof of the house and painting the tree-crown with evening-gold, thus empasizing the autumm-colors even more.

Enjoy!

What a grand old house. Reminds me of pix I have seen of old houses in Quebec. I like the quality of the light falling on the house and the trees in the original shot. Very nice.

Thank you, lesmore49!

In this shot I was kind of torn between 2 major camps, so to speak - and I tried to satisfy both 'cravings'.

On the one hand this is an architectural shot of an old house, on the other hand it is a seasonal shot and possibly a third angle might be the mood created by the setting sun.

Mission Impossible is to get all three of them together in one shot. But posting the pictures here makes me see things differently and I really do learn a lot from all the different comments.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

Well, if you like "grand old houses", then I am tempeted to post another one, shot just across the steet from the "Autumm-house" - apparently i have entered a "posh" area because it all looked so well-kept, with nice big gardens around...



It had marvellouse shiny roof-tiles (Dutch-tiles, we call them...) in a wonderful red color and the satellite-dish was discreetely hidden inside the small alkove on the second floor, just behind the flowers.

Do you like this house as well?

You really have some great looking old homes where you live, a photographers dream. The edits on the first photo are great!

Yes, another nice piece of architecture. Im more interested in the roof on this one. Shiny red tiles, looks more like Chinese than Dutch. As Bob just said, a photographers dream.

A lovely house too. Being a North American I find that when I'm in Europe there are so many nice, beautiful old buildings with lot's of character that are not too common over here on our continent.

I recall visiting relatives in Scotland awhile ago...they live in lovely, old houses but which have very modern interiors. I felt they have the best of both worlds..
