It looks as though you have taken an image of the grass and the house is just in the background. Not a great deal to say really about the image, as there is no point of interest as such.

I think that this would have worked better if the house was old and abandoned, derelict even. Also, I would have cut away or pushed aside the two large stalks in the foreground. As it is now, I don't have any clues why you composed the picture this way - or indeed why you actually took the photo.

Having assessed my comments I find that they duplicate those of Stephen.

I fully understand the above comments, Muhamad.
You may have been looking at other pictures where the photographer has used foreground plants, has filled most of the frame with the plants, and had their main subject at the top of the frame, using vertical format, as you have done. This means placing the house within the top third, which you have successfully achieved here.
So, the foreground dominates, but should not in any way act as a barrier to the main subject. You have some very tall grasses which act as a barrier to the view of the house, and which even extend beyond and above it.
Your low point of view is a good idea, and I appreciate that you are making an effort to shoot from an unusual perspective.
You needed a smaller aperture in order to get both the house and the foreground grass and flowers in focus.
It's unfortunate that your sky has no detail, and is very bright.
What I also appreciate is that there are probably very few buildings where you live that we might call photogenic, and you can therefore be forgiven if the building you chose is uninteresting. I can see that you are making an effort to see what you DO have with a different eye, in an effort to be more creative with your photography, which you obviously enjoy.
This idea has a lot of potential, Muhamad, and just needs a bit more work to get it right. Don't be afraid to continue to be creative rather than just snapping what you see.
Pamela.

Muhamad Hi ,

I totally agree with everything stated above. My advice is ... before pressing the button to take the picture look very carefully a r o u n d the frame ! our mind plays tricks and usually see things different than what the camera sees !
There are cables on top , a dark tree on the left and chaotic grass infocus upfront and a building at the back.
Imagine that the picture you take will be enlarged and placed on a wall at your house ...!!

Keep shooting
Take care

Charles

The idea and viewpoint is good, but the content needs consideration. You needed one main flower in the foreground to act as focal point, probably on the bottom left third - currently things are bitty. You then need to darken the house a bit with the burn tool to focus attention on the foreground, because this composition favourrs the foreground, not the background.
