I came across this old house. Had to make a quick shot because it was starting to rain heavy. I messed up with my camera settings so it was on ISO800 and It was on the wrong setting. It was on full Manual but I expcted it to be on Aperture and because and i was in a hurry and didnt really check it very good so it was under exposed quite a bit. I managed to rescue 2 stops of exposure in captureNX2.

I hope you like it. I dont make much architecture photos so i am not really good at it. This was just kind of a lucky shot.

Made it with a Nikon D7000 and nikkor 35mm F1.8G prime lens.
Attempts to rescue this photo were done in CaptureNX2.

Well the top of the gable has been cropped and the foreground between you and the river/canal is of little interest. Compositionally I would have aimed higher to include all of the building, giving is a bit of sky above and not including the pathway in the foreground.

The scene looks a little flat - maybe upping the saturation on the green slightly would help too.

I removed the bit at the bottom with the sidewalk. And i tried to improve the looks of the plants and trees a bit.

The top of the building should have been there, I agree but it isn't.
Nobody is perfect.

Indeed - but check the edges of the frame when shooting.

I will try to convert it into black & White. Nice project because I just bought a book on digital Black & White photography a few days ago. (I think sepia will look good too).
