A local shotgun-shack type building which probably served as a house at some point, as it has a chimney. Wet gloppy snow coming down helped add to the miserable ambience. Once I found the shot through the front door through a back door, instead of just a flat black entryway, I knew I had my entry.

pp: convert NEF to dng, crop, resize, masses of cloning and dodge and burn (to remove twigs on left and blend into sky without making it look like I was trying to create new features) adjust exposure, vibrance, desat, Silver NIK and NIK output sharpener.
