    Brook Cottage

    I dont really know what I intended here,which is a bad starting point for any picture.
    It was supposed to be Misty ,foggy,damp and uninviting,the kind of place you wouldnt like to go...
    I dont think there is anything major wrong with it, but I just need some ideas for the foreground.........Jack.

    Foreground?

    I like it the way it is. It has a compelling almost supernatural look and feel to it. I don't know what you could add that would make any improvement.

    Dear Jack, a beautiful scene but you should not open the door like that, well, i would take the scary ravens out, put a little crook in the strangers staff, and bring down a little more green grasses and add a few close-up clover with dusty pink blossoms, too sentimental? well, St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, but it is very nice the way it is too,,,,

    Lee.... Hello Lee... you are a Mr Nice Guy...I have made the picture more colourful,swapped the ravens for crows and made it a bit smaller,(I think pink blossoms would blow it straight out of the water..) so I didnt go that far...nice ideas though,thanks for coming back with your reply.... Jack.

    Dear Jack,!, yes, pink flowers a little too cutsey, your re-do really gave the sky much more of a glow and made the greens greener, beautiful!

    Jack, this is so very good! I was going to suggest continuing a bit with the grasses, but your solution is just fine as it is! Job well done!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
