So first thing I noticed :
White balance is Controlled on the house and snow! So many get it wrong and too many have blue snow!
Lovely to see white balance Controlled and to see a touch of blue in the sky only!
Yipppeeeee!
Lori girl..this is superb!
Great focus of this beautiful mansion framed out by lace like branches from the trees and everything blanketed in snow.
You must stop by and present them with your photo...print in on metallic paper and it will be ahhhmazing!
Out of sixes.
Cyber one plus will have to do;)

This is a very well taken shot. Your exposure and focus are excellent. You have nice detail in both the highlights and shadows. Your shot is well cropped with nice composition. This would be a wonderful real estate shot. I think to make it something to hang on a wall, it needs a bit something more like a snowman or deer on the lawn? Still a nice shot.

So beautiful is this winter landscape scene of this stately manor in your home town. I like how those stark trees add so much contrast to your scene against the snow. A stunning capture and taken under a beautiful sky with cloud formations. A good composition of this gorgeous scene and nice movement in your scene. Outstanding photography and thanks for sharing.

I see that you took this in winter. I moved from Indianapolis to the San Francisco Bay Area which hardly ever has snow. This is a nice composition. Good framing and somehow the sky goes with the house. Thank you for sharing and best of luck with this image

Comment from nikman


And a very nice and grand one it is to! Your fine full and central composition of it provides a lovely look at the propriety. The snow also enhances your photo. Exposure and sharpness are good. Nicely taken!

Comment from Life is but a dream.


Good solid post with white snow (yay).

You have a good light source showing coming into the frame giving depth.

Including that tree at the side frames and gives a sense of scale as well.

That is some home!

Comment from karen zima


This is so beautiful. This is the kind of home that I have always dreamed of. There is something about pillars in the front of the home that make it stately. The snowy scene in the foreground and the white clouds above the home harmonize well. The home is lit nicely with the sun on the left.

A well composed shot with a nice exposure for all those whites. The architectural details are well shown and the colors are quite attractive.
