I came across this house floating in the middle of the river while canoeing at Albion, CA. It didn't appear that anyone was home, but there were 3 little dogs that barked at us as we circled the house.

This was already one of my top ten vacation spots, but now that they have satellite TV - even sweeter! ;-)
I'm thinking you could've cropped tighter and enlarged to see some of the delapidated detail and the boat may not be necessary - at least not that much of it. Cool shot though!

Now that's a fun house! The house may be surreal; the photo, I think, isn't.

I can't see the dogs, but definitely you have most curious subject here. And it does well for the image not to have it taken from shoreline. I wonder if you could have had better lighting however, perhaps waited for couple of hours into afternoon.
