Hey, Karen... :)))
Nicely done! I love the framing and the fence that divides everything so nicely. I ESPECIALLY like that curving drive with the nice contrasting colors. Great sharpness, well composed,(as always) and just an entirely nice scene. I like that. Many thanks and warmest wishes,

Hi Karen,
A nice capture of this rural scenery with a good use of the door as a frame.
Beautiful lighting and focusing.
I like the composition with the path emerging from the bottom right and leading us to action with the human element.
The fence is doing a great role in the persepective.
Nice farmhouses at the back, overheaded by a nice pastel blue sky.
Great capture.
Best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Karen.
Good idea to use door or window frame as a image frame.
Looks very good to me.

Hi Karen

Another fine photojournalistic shot of the historical museum, with good sharpness, colour & framing through the veranda. Have a nice weekend!

Hi Karen,
Yes , I like the Point of view with a naturel frame, lovely fence and details, Nice perpective and beautiful scene of old time...
Michel have a good WE..

good shot,lovely framing,great DOF.TFS

Nicely exposed Karen.
We can see some detail in the window or door frame and yet the scene as a whole is perfectly exposed. Having the cart, horse and people add life to this scene as well.

Hello Karen,

Great pov where the doorway frames the shot.
I found myself singing 'Ducks and pigs and geese better scurry ...!' It really reminds me of that sort of setting and scene. You know, photographs do create atmospheres, tell stories! The details of the dirt track, the picket fence, the distant gateway and, of course, the horse pulled vehicle are the important elements that you have included to rekindle the memory.
The dof is just right.

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Very well done Karen. A nice rustic scene nicely framed. God job
warm regards

Hi Karen..this is a nice farm scene...well composed, nice work.


Love it - inventive to take this shot through the open window and include some of the frame.

Would've preferred you to aim the camera a little higher and have a 2:1 ratio of sky to land, just to keep that composition strong!

Nice capture though


Hello Karen,
Great composition and interesting framing.
I li,ked position of fence and brillant colors

Hi Karen
Great POV and a very good photo. I love the shine of light on the wood in both the sides of the frame. Great sharpness and light, with excellent colour.
Best regards, mb

Hello Karen, yes,I do like the view.I like the way you have used the door as a frame so that we feel as if we are peeping out at the people on the wagon.
Good colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Karen,
I like your POV! What a good idea to take the frame of the window (or door?)to frame the scene!
Many elements in the composition talk about the History!
Very clever presention of this place!
My compliments! Annie
