Hi Debbi. Hope you don't mind but I took some liberties with your entry and did a little post work on it. I like the building and I think it suits the challenge well, but it seems that your autofocus grabbed the foreground branches, and with the shallower depth of field (at F2.8) the background (subject building) just couldn't quite come thru. Did you select ISO 100 and F2.8 on purpose? I'd think you could go up to at least ISO 400 to go a bit deeper on aperture and still maintain a hand-held shutter speed. ???

Anyway - here's a rough workup I gave it to add a little mood. Quick and dirty, so to speak, using my laptop. I'll pull it if you'd rather not have it posted here.

Take care.
