I like it.

I think I would have removed the piece of trim moulding on the left before taking the shot.

A little tighter to show more detail of the weathered birdhouse might also have produced a good one...but I like the stacked deck and "overgrown" look around the frame.

Good Comp.

A tad overexposed.

Overall this is a nice composition and the b/w conversion works very well with it. The impact it could have is ruined by the verticle object in the foreground. It distracts the viewers from the center of interest and leads them out of the frame. You can burn it slightly to minimize the distraction.

Thanks for sharing.

to be honest I would shoot this again from a different angle, composition is not too good here. You need to draw the eye toward the main feature, the box. In this photo my eyes dart all over the photo then rest on the thing sticking up in the middle. I also think maybe sepia would look good for the subject.

I agree with Aladyforty. Here is a quick crude edit for you to go on. There are too many blown highlights in the original file to make many tonal adjustments, but you can get some ideas here. You want to provide the most contrast between your main subject and the background elements. In the original image, you have several elements competing for the viewers attention as Aladyforty mentions.

Good luck,
Rodney
