For 2 years this photograph wasn't even possible. Then this summer, the house was condemned and the inhabitants inside were escorted out by the police. Now there is this relic that rests against my backyard...the backyard I can now walk out into and take pictures in the moonlight for as long as I desire.

The first thing that grabbed my attention was the framing. Intentionally limiting what we know about this places surroundings. The cool tones and few clumps of unkept shrubs are not very inviting. The single tree in the distance offers some hope. Your notes on the image help narrow the story.

It's a disappointing score but you knew it was an unconventional image when you decided to enter. I'm glad you did! If this image score 6 or higher I probably wouldn't have comment or spent more that a few seconds taking it in.

The stillness of the exorcism brings beauty.

haunting, odd, intriguing palette, like the start of something totally new, like the night wanderings of the colour blind.

weirdly compelling

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

Brilliant framing.

I would not have realized this was moonlight without the title - but a second pass reveals the wonderful starts. Seems cut off on the sides, though.
