I think this is a lovely image, but the white at the top detracts (for my taste). It's cutting off the tops of the gables and since it's not the same shade of white, it adds some distraction. The text is beautiful as in the general composition, but I would love to see the entire building.

Nice building and foliage, colors. I think that the crop is too tight, and the top/bottom borders and titles are a miss - consider less crop and overlaid titles.

I like the colors, with the contrasting red. Might be cropped a little tight on top for me. but nicely done.

This looks like a postcard. :D Nice photo overall. Pretty good control on perspective distortion (building lines while shooting with camera tilted up). Font style selection is fine, although you could use more space for the text area up top as the "g" gets lost. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

I'm a little bothered by the front door being blocked by the arch over the gate. You want the shot to say WELCOME. If the it had been taken from a sidestep to the right, the door would have been framed by the arch, inviting guests to enter.

This picture feels a little unbalanced to me. I think it has to do with the thick white borders you have chosen. They seem to merge with the tops of the chimney and dormers and the top of the house is cropped off. Also, there is so much white going on except for just 1/3 of the vertical where the tree resides. Score: 5.

Text at top needs more space around. crop is too close IMO, would have liked to see the whole house

The top and bottom borders could be smaller. The text is taking a lot of attention from the beautiful shot you took. 5
