I like the old building here and the way you have captured the shadows of the branches on the end of the house too. Some interesting old buildings you are sharing with us on TE.
Have a good weekend.

Nice to see a traditional thatched cottage, there dont seem to be many left, and getting fewer and fewer. even where I live in Meath, its a rarity to see these, and certainly to see one so well kept. I love your inclusion of the knobbly old tree in the frame too, it adds a lot of extra character to the whole scene.

Fabulous composition, combining this interesting building, with the beauty of the old tree, maybe centenary with a special beauty with its gnarled branches, which provide a beautiful graphics, the projection of their shadows on the facade of the house is a nice effect.
A beautiful sunny day, which gives a wonderful range of beautiful colors.
A perfect sharpness, well managed with this lighting.
I wish you a good day.

A well preserved old house, Arthur, nowadays a museum.
The naked tree is an excelent addition here, added nice contrast where its branchs shaded on the facade.
A bit of more sharpness would be useful.
Have a nice Friday,

A very cute thatched building. I like the way the old tree seems to be protecting the building.
