This is a beautiful old house that has just been left to deteriorate over time (and vandales haven't helped either). There are a few acres and a large privacy wall. Just past the wall is a Walmart. You can go to the Walmart and not even know this huge house is next door. It's a shame to see such lovely building left to rot with time.

Nicely framed. A little detail lost around the porch area but not a big problem IMO. Not sure on the border????

Good subject, night lighting and a nocturnal shot woulda boosted the creepy factor on this.

I like this image even though it doesn't look haunted to me. It looks kind of pleasant to me. Not that a pleasant abode cannot hold magic and mystery!

The house is great, but the colors are too bright / cheery to be haunting. WOnder what this would be light with more muted colors, even B/W.

Unfortunately, the relatively bright lighting and low contrast don't convey anything mysterious to me about this house. Now, if one of the windows were glowing, it might. Or if it were at night, or even darker.

It's a nice shot outside of this challenge, though. 4.

The house has potential but the weather doesn't give me that feeling. You might be alluding to what happens after the sun goes down, but if that's the case I think you're alluding too much. I'm not a huge fan of the gradient border.

Faded borders don't seem to fly much here. Just a tip. It does look like a nice "haunted" house, although on a very non-haunted day. Perhaps some more dramatic lighting may make for a better shot. 5

Now, that's one haunted house I would be happy to live in :) Beautiful grounds, processed very well to enhance the lush look.

This house certainly provokes some haunted imagery. Nice shot and nice framing by the leaves.

I love old houses. This photo has great color and is in focus where need be. It would be neat to see some hint of a ghost on roof or in the windows somehow. Don't know if that is possible but that would surely be neat and give it more of a haunted feel.
