I love old houses.

The photo seems a little flat to me. Maybe add some more contrast?

Did you meter off the sky and recompose? Anyway here is some shadow highlight, levels and noise added just to recover the sky a bit and give it the old time look.

Selective levels? You can adjust for some stuff but keep the siding and snow and all that contrasty but bump the exposure back up on the sky.

I like this shot, but it makes me want to see more...

Can you go back? I would like to see a close-up shot through one of the windows (like the bottom right one), with the snowy outdoors visible through an opposing window and the light illuminating the mostly dark, empty interior. I think that if you catch the light just right, the image might bring to mind an intimate, emotional realization that this was once a warm, cozy home to (probably) several generations of people. Black & white will be perfect.
