    I like the edit you made - though it is a shame that the horse tie-up wasn't centered to the front of the house when it was installed.

    #3 seems a little out of focus, or maybe i'm noticing some movement in the photo.

    #4 doesn't do anything for me.

    #5 the lack of an apex to the building is distracting - doesn't complete.

    I didn't even notice that on the horse tie up not being centered of the house, #3 may be OOF do to me trying manual focus on some shots. #5 I can always re-shoot it is not like the privy is going any where :lol:

    One or two steps to the left would have fixed that. The house isn't exactly centered as far as perspective goes, either. You would also want to get (your camera) up higher so it (horse thing) is surrounded by the grass, and not poking in the front door.

    Here is a little different angle that I didn't post do to almost losing the left corner of the house. Your right a few steps to the left moved the horse thing not sure I could get the camera much higher due to the sloping front yard.

    I don't think they want me driving my car through the front yard of a National Historic Landmark :p. What you don't see is a row of trees that were behind me along the street.

    You are high enough in that last shot. You just needed to get that horse thing from poking into the house.
