Yesterday I went back to visit the farm I grew up on. This old vacant house sat on the hill across the road from our farm.

Olá Karen,
Nice atmosphere of remembrance! À la Recherce du Temps Perdu? There are anything proustian in this post.
Beautiful, very beauiful.
Bom domingo,

Hello Karen! Excellent shot. Amazing landscape. Mysterious cottage. Good frame. Well done!

Nice balance between tree and house and very nice evening light. Always nice to go home.
warm regards

Hi Karen,
Good presentation of your remembrance,
Excellent point of view and details,
beautiful composition and great colors
well done.

Hi Karen,

This is a perfect point of view on this rural landscape!
I adore your beautiful composition including flowers in the first plan, superb play of shadows and light on the fields and the little house at the horizon. I agree with Raimundo about the proustian mood!

For enhancing this mood, I cannot help but to make a WS. Please, don't mind! It is just a personal interpretation.

My compliments! Annie

Hi Karen,
Such a desolate old house, nice mood created in this image, welcoming in the light but when it geds dark quite lonely. Great PoV and detail, subjects nicely placed in shot. TFS

Quelle doucuer dans les tons et couleur, une fin de joiurnée merveilleus sur cette campagne, avec la cabane, ce bel arbre, superbe.

Bravo et maitié


Hello Karen,

Your pov is perfect with the tree to left balancing the house, in the distance.
The dof works very well, gently fading the details as the eyes move deeper into the shot.
The soft play of light emphasises the green colour tones.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Karen,
What a delightful looking scene! I love the way you've cropped this, looks like a great place to grow up. Can almost smell the country air from here :). Very rich and alive colours, nice orange tinges in the sky too. Good idea to go back, you certainly got a good shot out of it.

Hi Karen,
This shot has a very soothing effect. Nice shades of green, and nicely composed to have the wild flowers in the FGS, and the contrasting smooth fields in the BG.
Must hold some wonderful memories.

Hi Karen!
Nice colours and wonderful shot.Nice landscape.Regards.A.
