This small castle, built in the 1920's, is only 1 block from downtown Owosso, Michigan.

I edited out some shrubbery and converted it from color to B/W.

I might try and rotate a bit to the left to get the axis of the center windows vertical ... nevermind! I checked and I think that the rocks on the left and the lighting are creating an illusion of tilt, but the center is quite vertical -- nice job!

Looks like a Smurf house.

I've been here! Thought it looked familier! Nice shot but I would have liked the color version better I think, this is a wonderful building with lots of character that seems to be a bit lost int the black and white version. A 7 as is :)

This is an interesting building, perhaps a little bit too determinedly twee, with the irregular stonework and and the turret roof; but effective.

great shot-interesting subject and angle-wondered why you didn't clone out the tree in the right upper since this was open editing-although trees can sometimes anchor a subject's height

Very nice textures - nice composition. I'm not sure the tree in the upper right adds much, but it's not too distracting either.

More tree, or less tree, but that little bit is kinda funny. I like the angle of the shot though. Maybe if the weathervane had been turned it would have added some interest.

nice composition, although the tree detail unfortunately distracts
