Performed selective color, cloned out the sb-600s and added a vignette. Then added a monochrome channels layer for B&W.

I like your photo. I think the use of b&w is effective. I get a sense of lonliness or abandon from your image.

Very dramatic! Reminds me of a setting for a horror movie. 9

Super location, love a good wreck. I think you might have been trying to portray more than you did. With two clear subjects in the image, the house and the tree, I think is distracting. The tree strands out more than the house, which I think should have been the bigger focus.

I'm wondering how you'd feel about the image if you cropped about 1/4 of the left and right - the tree would still be in the image, but not all of it and we could concentrate our eyes on the buidling and the light coming through the clouds.

There are lots of visual treats in this shot.

I really like the B&W conversion, ground, the shack, the tree, and most of the sky. The only problem for me is the sky directly above the shack.

The sunbeams appear to be drawn on, above a burnt out cloud ?

To be honest these are relatively minor points and it is still a very pleasing picture - the real issue is that the whiteness of the burnt out cloud lifts the eye up and away from where the focal point should be - the shack.

Tone down the cloud, lose the sunbeams and this would be even better

Who says you can't get good shots in the middle of the day. Nice shot

Well presented and a perfect subject scene for b&w.

NICE tones. Really a wonderful composition with the tree to the right. If it weren't there, the shack would just be floating. Great light. Awesome.

Crisp image, dramatic sky, maybe a little hot in some areas
