this shot was actually taken from the front seat of our family car on the way home one sunday afternoon, caught the right moment when the sun appeared as the day had been very showery to that point.

cropped and enhanced colours, removed a power line to the house

well seems I took the challenge instructions too literally, leaving room top and bottom of the image for text. When just any photo entry would do it seems even if the pic is landscape. Live and learn....

I would prefer to see less pavement in this photo and more "country".

Neat looking place. I would have cropped out about half of that drive and I would have tilited the photo a bit to the right, which I think would straighten up the house some. Hmm...then maybe the tree would be "off". I can envision this on the cover.

The photo is not completely clear, and the color is a bit washed. I'd consider it at sunset or add more contrast :)

This photo does very little for me. The house has been placed unimaginatively right in the centre of the frame, but just off enough for this to look haphazard. The house blends in the background too much, and there is not enough sharpness in the shot. My main gripe is that this is a shot that looks like anyone could have taken it. Look for unusual angles and textures. How could you simplify the composition here? There is simply too much going on in this shot that looks like it hasn't been thought about. What makes this house special? What can lift this shot out of the ordinary?

A bit less foreground may look better, good picture though.

The wet pavement just adds to this well composed shot (w/ lots of room for title and text) All that's missing is a punchier sky. One of my favorites this challenge
