    Tried to make a moody B&W landsacpe here. Hoping it looks a bit creepy. C&C always appreciated.

    Im new to this so bear with me but i think if would be a little better if it went so centered. Other wise I love it.

    I personally think that it would be better without the rock, and like said above, if the house weren't so centered.
    The lighting is very good. I do get the creapy vibe from your lighting. Great job though, I really like it.

    Personally, I like the rock. It adds some texture and some life in the foreground. I love the lighting. Good shot.

    I rather like the rock.

    You caught a very moody sky to go along with the photo.

    The lighting is good.

    Centered is not good for me, but what kills it for me is all the tangled confusion in the upper left of the photo. Particularly the power pole and power lines.

    I would suggest (if possible to revisit) to get a different PoV (point of view). Additionally, maybe try to kneel or even in the prone position. Try many variables.

    It's a neat house.

    Thank you all for the replies.

    I like the rock, it gives foreground interest. As for the compostion well as I said I liked the rock and this was the best I could come up with composing around said rock. I need a wider angle lens to fit more stuff in or perhaps a forklift then I can move my foreground insterest!

    Hope you don't mind; I played around with it for a bit, just because I like the house and idea.. and I agree about it needing a different crop. Hope you like it..

    Meh, looking at my edit.. I'm not really sure. The rock DOES add something.. but a wider lens would have been cool I guess.

    I like the edit, but... You are right, there is just something about that rock now that I look at the two.. Hmm..
    But your edit does make the house look alittle more creepy!

    I still prefer it with the rock I'm afraid. There is just something about that rock in the foreground. I just adds so much more to the pic in my view.

    I think you're right! Maybe if you had gone down on the ground to move the rock up and possibly cover those doors then you could have produced a different crop AND include the rock. :sexywink:
