    not bad! I just think all the "stuff" in the foreground...the grass, small trees, etc are a tad too distracting...is the attention suppose to be on the house, or on the grass?

    My attention is drawn to the pole with what appears to be a light on top?

    Really kinda nice. Not overwhelming. Not technically perfect, perhaps... A more interesting sky would be cool. But still, pleasing and decent composition.

    Well color isn't so much the interest I'm speaking of as texture (translation: clouds)

    i think the foreground is not distracting, but helps to set the scene and draw the view in. the only distraction i see is that pole, as mentioned.
    composition is great!
    i would kill that pole, and you've got a great image.
    well done!

    Is there a way to edit the pole out.

    By the way I waited for like a week to get this photo. I didn't want any clouds in it. here in Boston it's getting mighty cold and I figured no clouds would make the photo feel "colder" same with the black and white.
