A beautiful composition captured from what appear to be the perfect point of view. The image has immediate interest with both clarity and quality throughout.

The detailing in the stone work is particularly impressive Ann...

Good lighting to bring out the detail in the bricks

The stone work is beautifully cut and considering it was done by hand they made a fine job of the corners and edges. You have a fine croft house here and one day somebody will come up with the cash to bring this one back to life again.
The soft light suits this old home down to the ground Ann.

I agree and hope someone invests and make this house a home once again Ann, with that view it is very surprising it is a ruin.

MTS I could clearly see Stac Pollaidh from the north of Skye when I was up the east coast, covered in snow it looked magnificent in the sunlight. I'm still wishing to do the walk at least as far as the top of the path.
No doubt my face will look like this if I manage. Blush

Looks a bit like many picturesque ruins round here. I never feel inspired, we got one 20 steps from the front door. Wish I had your ideas.
Just have a play the channels, I can see a re filter b/w conversion here.

Well, try the mono but there are things here that really benefit from the color:
-- the similarity of the tones between wall and the dry twigs
-- the blue of the sky clearly setting off the silhouette of trees and building.

This is a wonderful image.
