Very nice study in architectural textures, plus a nice leading line (with perspective) to draw us through them. Those rocking chairs on this side of the L shaped porch serve as an anchor for the eye

Thanks Minnie. Always appreciate the specifics in your comments. They prompt me to look again and learn. Matt

I like this very much! It puts me in mind of Gursky (again with the Gursky). Ir's the division into thirds. The lower third has the run of vertical pickets bound with a board. The narrow middle third is the porch rail with bars running in two directions, like ladders. That gives way to the upper third, with its majestic Victorian turnings running vertically across the horizontal siding of the house. The low sun is making white dots coming through the filigree work. It's very chiaroscuro, light and shade, almost all white, 3/4 backlit (oh boy backlit) with the rockers, jugs and flag for random additional interest. This is a shot made for black and white. I'm not sure it would even work as well in color. Really really good! :thumbup:

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks Chuck. As I looked at the photo when I had loaded it, I wish I had gone up the side of the house to take some "creative" abstract shots of the side with the poles, posts,filigree, etc. Next summer! Yes, these Cape Cod houses scream b&w! So, I cooperate. Thanks again. Matt
