This should have done better, one of my favourites.

I really like this image---especially the farmland out in the background. I do always prefer not so harsh shadows (as in the very right part of the building).

Excellent composition. You get the full length of the building and a sense of the view from the home even though you're facing the the building. There could be a mall in the view of the building now, but you've shown us a roaming farm land so the viewer can only imagine more of the same.

The clouds could have been a little more ideal, but hey, what can ya do? They still had good interest.

This has to be in Europe somewhere. Gorgeous, perfect time of day.

this could be a South African rural scene. Wonderful composition but I would have clipped more of foreground. Beautiful nonetheless

Like: the building, the grass, the background, the sky, black and white.
Dislike: none, only wondering what it looks like in colour.
