The is actually a private residence along a fairly busy road. Happened by this place about a week ago. Was hoping for this very challenge. Apparently there's a horse-drawn hearse that they'll put in front on Halloween, but this was taken the day before.

Unfortunately the lighting wasn't ideal at the time of my shot and it was very windy at the time of my shot. Even with a shallow DOF, I needed a long exposure, thus the wind-blown plants in the foreground. :(

PP includes: Convert from raw, levels, curves?, topaz-detail, minor cloning & burning, slight usm

Thanks for looking.
