what a lovely old house.A nicely composed shot. The colours are so natural and you have resisted the temtptation to over saturate.

Karen, nice capture, I think your improvement continues. Do you find that you are seeing things differently because of your course? Keep up the great work.

Looks a very charming house; I particularly like the roof. I like how you have placed it in the frame and the inclusion of the surrounding countryside. Also, the gold and green tones of the grassland, which are nicely complemented by the pale blue sky. Very good sharpness.

belle photo de cette vieille maison bien entourée de végétation et avec un beau cile bleu avec de légers nuages.

Good natural colours with an excellent composition showing the old house on the right. The faint curving tracks are enough to lead our eye towards it. Well done

A wonderful and very atmospheric photo as well ... and a somehow touching one - considering that this formerly has been a home. A special and not everyday photo ...
Greetings from very hot Germany!

Beautiful Alberta landscape and nice lonely old house

Very good colours with this brownish, dry grass and that old house. When were all these houses abandoned? How old are they? Has everyone left the countryside here to live in the city? There seems to be a lot of these old houses here!

I like your perspective and composition on this old beauty, good light and well saturated colors, but I don't think your choice of framing color does anything for your image. Thanks for sharing. Gerald

a beauty in a great golden setting.

This is absolutely lovely - if it wasn't for the certain sadness of seeing yet another abandoned house. But the building seems to have been such a nice place long ago, and the surroundings are fine. It's a very well composed picture with great colors and sharpness.

Beautiful image, good quality, excellent POV and good exposure too. I like this lonely barn here.

Hello Karen -
This is very nice. I like the saturated colors against the old building and the power blue sky. I also like the composition and your decision to offset the building was the right choice. Well done!
Thank you for sharing.

Lovely summer image with the historic old home standing out against the georgeous blue sky and contrast lush green fields.
ChrisJ (91292) 2009-08-22 1:13
Good sharpness, colour, framing, & warm cold colour contrasts, between the dry yellow grass / red & brown old barn, & the blue sky. Enjoy Vancouver!

j'aime les photos qui me transportent dans ces belles plaines canadiennes, tellement typiques tant par la flore que par les fermes qui y furent construites.
Une photo avec de belles couleurs champêtres.

Hi Karen. This looks half barn and half house. Nice composition, you have included enough BG to put the house into perspective. Good handling of light also. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good Sunday, Paul.

The right position in the frame was a nice choice for the construction in the pfoto composition. Very interesting shot.

One thing I observe is that old woooden houses in North America is less painted in general comparing to buildings in Scandinavia
Like the saddleroof

axiotea (21647) 2009-10-07 12:31
Such a charming house...It is nicely presented in a good light and in a suitable framing! I really like the colors, the sky...
I'll add it in my theme 'more fav.pictures'
P.S hope you have recovered from your back injury ;)

Very charming and bucolic. Beautiful colours and an excellent compo in its simplicity. I like it very much.

I love these old houses in the prairie, but as you say, this one is rather unique! It seems to be really old and could still be lived in; unfortunately, seems to be abandoned!
Great composition, with the brown house surrounded by greenery in the middle of golden fields. The beautiful pastel sky adds a touch of joy to the scene despite the loneliness of the house!
Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday!
