Just 10 mins away stands this old house, it was last lived in sometime in the 60's. It has it's own orchard out the back with some amazing views on all sides....A real shame!
The daytime shots are from my third attempt at this, with the sunset being my fourth....one day I'll get it right.

The corragated roof was added by the farmer who once used it for storage....now the only visitor are the occasional sheep.
Tips on a better shot appreciated.

I think you've done a good job capturing this place already.... of the daytime ones i prefer the first.... and the sunset ones i prefer the second to last, i not sure what else you could try to be honest, the compostions are good and the light is effective..... i'd be satisfied with these :thumbup:

well captured. i really like the first shot for the sky, but I also like those boulders in the hillside too. The trees are awesome too. I would just keep experimenting with different angles and focal lengths. What you have is so good already, you might have a tough time improving on them. Some closer detail shots of that stonework might be nice too. I like the idea on #4, but you might watch the framing and prevent the branches from interfering with the line of the house... it's so close, but it just overlaps a touch on the upper corners. i like the dramatic sky in the first sunset shot, but it may be too dramatic and the house is really dark so it puts the focus on the sky, not the house. the second sunset shot is much better in that regard... i love the greens on that one and the first two in this terrific series... :thumbup:

Not where I thought I'd end up
Very nice series KenCo, very nice. I agree with Arch (1st and next to last). Great minds thinking alike??? I like the distance in the 5th shot and the idea of the trees framing the house but as JTH said, the branches overlap the structure. Can you go back and shoot more of this place?

Thanks guy's appreciate your comments.The building is about 150 years old and has been empty since about the 1940's not the 60's. Like I say the building is only a short walk away (but quicker if I take the car:wink:) So no problem going back, if you have any suggestions DestinDave. Thanks JTH i'll remeber about the framing on that shot if I go back again and certainly for future refence on any other I do like that...good tip!
Thanks again.
Ken.

very nice! For some reason I am reminded of Ireland when I see these photos, which is always a good thing!

You aren't the first person to say that as it happens.
Thanks again.

Love the look/mood of this abandoned stone structure, and I think you did an awesome job capturing it.
