Florence from Paris, France

A long time ago after Charles Ingalls and his family have died ? This is a gorgeous mono Steve, with extra rendering on textures (herbs, wood, brick and decay). Love it as a nostalghic reminiscence of the epic/heroic past.

A fine, old shack to spot and shoot. A top-notch job of shooting a black and white image with a wide range of tones. I like the whitened grass. Fine work.

Superb textures and tones. It appears to be a lonely desolate place, but there's a little house way over yonder. Must be lonely?

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

This has got to be the first photo in a long time where I have seen a strong "presence" of grass. And the grass really has a lot of great texture in your processing. I love how the rolling storm clouds are contrasted beautifully by the snow-capped mountains.
