    The right chimney gets a bit lost in the tree, but it doesn't look like there was much you could do about it. Nicely framed and exposed shot.

    Lovely structure and surrounding. Love the dappled lights. I would suggest like a straight on angle to isolate its beautiful wall.

    Thank you ever so much all for the lovely comments.

Lo - I had to rush as fast as I could to get to the farmhouse as soon as the museum opened to catch the light. It would have to be by far the furthest building from the entrance!

    The detail in this photo is incredible. I love the dappled effect of the son on the stone walls. Excellent composition and colour.

    Nicely composed and perfectly exposed. A great example of stones and rocks as building materials.

    Thank you both very much for the great comments.

davemisunas - I agree that Cropping in closer would be the way to go. Unfortunately I had to enter it in a bit of a rush as I went on holidays and was unable to change it. I think I would have cropped the bottom and right slightly though.

    Nice stone building and nicely shot.. in focus with nice colors.. in my favorites.. I might have cropped in losing the greenery above and to the right and make the stone work the star rather than the building.

    What an enchanting house, beautifully photographed. I'm very curious what's inside! Love the light and shadows.

    This looks like it could stand for another 500 years. Great find. I love the play of the light with the pattern of of the rock wall. In my favs.
