The Cottage

By Valerie1
I was looking through my back files and have never uploaded this because I wasn't sure about it. What do you think?

It is a little unoccupied thatched cottage tucked away on a side road that I came across one day. I liked how the cottage and bike have lots of character from the flaking paint on the windows of the cottage to the old bike with two flat tyres. I have processed the image to try to make it look like one of the very old ones from long ago.

Thank you for the C & C on my last upload. They are very much appreciated.

Any critique welcome.

I really like it...I would not call the picture "the cottage" though, i think the bike is the main "character"...

A lovely picture you have captured valerie . Pity the bike isn't a bit more decrepid . Not your fault . love the way you have processed torn edges to make it look so old . xx
