Wonderful. The houses seem almost animate beings having a conversation in building fashion . The picture has real impact, at least to me. Everyday objects transcend their ordinary personas, form different relationships and create a new synthesis. It's a picture almost wholly dependent on the imagination and compositional skills of the photographer; meaning is suggested where none existed before and that's a real feat of photographic alchemy.
Another tasty work right in my alley. I prefer your original. It had been a pleasure being in your shoes out there and get thrilled, but here I cherish this photo. Well seen and done.
many thanks for your comment & suggestion. You're touching a point that I was considering while editing the photo. I found the empty space above the house a bit problematic and my idea was to leave the tree in to balance the dark facade.
Here's a very quick and dirty edit - pushing your idea a bit further and arriving at a more abstract version - yet, moving away from the "true" photo...

one less tree . . .
I love your composition and eye - however I would have chopped down that tree . . . or at least cropped it out. I see the image as stronger with all human creations and so Mother Nature would have to go.
Jack, many thanks for your kind words - they are balm for my photographic soul!
Amy, many thanks for your consistent support - highly appreciated!
More wonderful shadow-play! Very nice one.
