Just over a day to go and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a top ten. Six lovely comments - almost all mention the processing. I worked up four very different perspectives from this shoot and spent a long time experimenting with different approaches; this is probably the simplest. It is not HDR. I did use three Topaz Adjust presets: exposure correction, photo pop on the grass and clarity on the rest of the image. I added a low opacity vignette and then added a low opacity digital Orton effect which I erased from the trees. I am very pleased so many enjoyed the result.

I like the way the tree appears to be protecting the property.

has the air of a lovely illustration (which is different than a photograph, but quite charming and very attractive) 7

The house looks good, but the (processing of the) tree does not work for me.

I like the composition of the house and the grass, the sky is adequately gloomy.

The textural processing is superb, I can feel the furriness of the trunk and leaves, the coldness of the stone, and the powdery sky behind.

I really like the HDR effect. If there were nothing else around, it'd be great panned back with the old crumbling house atop a hill. 7
