    I've been away working in Colorado for a just over a month and on the way home I stopped in Capulin NM to visit the volcano national park yesterday and saw this house on the way out of the park. Had to grab a couple of quick shots since it was about to rain.

    Very nice, though the sky looks darker on the right hand side above the hut then the rest.

    Actually that is the way the sky looked.... it was one largeish cloud about to dump rain, it's that way in the raw image as well.

    this Photo makes me think of a wonderful song by a folk artist named David Francey.. the song is called "Torn Screen Door"



    [FONT=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial]TORN SCREEN DOOR

    Late summer day and my
    Love and I went walking
    Over hills and fields
    we walked, laughing and talking

    Came across an old farmhouse
    Standing broken and bare
    It used to be someone's home
    Now no one lives there.

    There's a red barn standing
    Held together with nails and dust
    And a tired old Massey Harris
    All wires and rust


    Weeds overgrown in a garden
    sown with care
    It used to be someone's home
    Now no one lives there


    And through the crack
    In the window pane
    I hear the sound
    Of the falling rain
    Another farm being left run down
    Another family moved into town

    Had a life that they tried to save
    But the banks took it all away
    Hung a sign on a torn screen door
    Nobody lives here no more

    They worked their fingers
    To the bone
    Nothing left
    They can call their own
    Packed it in under leaden skies
    With just the wheat
    Waving them goodbye


    Had a life that they tried to save
    But the banks took it all away
    Hung a sign on a torn screen door
    Nobody lives here no more

    Great image.

    My opinion...I would up the contrast and a little brightness. Doing so will also saturate the colors a bit, so go and bring the saturation back down.

    The image is just a little flat right now. Some contrast will make it pop a bit more, but you want to maintain the muted colors to keep the mood.

    Great capture, great scene.
