Interesting view of this house. I like the small stones of the house together with the bigger stones in front. Good angle and nice lighting, well done!

Well I dont think this one will burn down... I really like how the photo starts from big rocks to smaller ones and then to the building. It fun to look at and of course, makes for good composition.

I guess that they didn´t spend much money on stones to build that house ;-)
Well captured with tight framing and perfect exposure control.The polarizer brings up clear and deap colors.

Considering that it was very cloudy on my visit there,it is a pleasure to discover what the place looks like through your photos.
Your viewpoint put the house against the sky for a well defined definition.

Hi Mr. Wes. It's funny how these old buildings always seem to burn down. You have good textures and the polarizer did good things for the colors. But I am wondering what happened to the sky. Is that jpeg compression problems? I did a WS for you, I hope you like it. But still a good catch Wes!

Interesting picture, here we know from where the stones came to build the house. Nice view and good angle, the lighting is very good.
Well done and TFS.

A nice informative photograph. Like the uniform spread of the gray colour in the picture.

This is a fine work of vision insight and moment of capture difficult rocky nature. Great Wide-Angle and a different post of you. This one is a great picture, not a nice landscape but a really and simple shot of a house and a place that you captured so well.
Very well seen and composed.
Best to you

The construction of this house with the nature stones give a robust feeling, the stairs a nice lines game, the green colours on the rock stones, on the foreground its specially.
Have a nice weekend,

I love the way you took this from below to emphasise the height. Good light/sahde contrasts. I'm intrigued by the green of the stones. Are they covered in moss and lichen?

Very rough stones at the tip top house. This is a very interesting subject you show well in the composition.
Textures are very well caught.
I like it

Est ce que la roche est verte naturellement ?
Je reconnais que c'est trčs curieux; une composition intéressante.
Is the rock green naturally? I recognize that it is very curious; an interesting composition.

A very nice composition with great strong contrast. The rocky environment looks like area from lunar. Very well done!

Not a particularly attractive building, or place, but the historical significance, & your note, are very interesting. I like the low pov looking up, & the polarized, blue sky. Good work!
