There was a competition in the Guyana Photographers’ Facebook Group on Colonial Architecture, it was getting very close to the deadline and there were very few entries, I “hurriedly” entered one that I took in passing, not a good shot by any standards, and regretted it immediately after.
Even if I am putting up a photo to “fill up space”, I should pay more attention, I have been less focused recently (no pun intended) , I can’t seem to get myself, the camera and the subjects to comply, to align properly.
I was out with Nikhil on a walk to get a photo for his 365 (366) Project and as we were wrapping up I saw this house and thought I should get a few snaps of it, and I knew right then that I had a better photograph than what I had recently dropped into the competition.
It was heavily overcast, and I deliberately composed it with lots of headroom.
As always, click on the image to see it larger in the Gallery 🙂

Nothing like a competition to (not) motivate you 🙂 Still it is good that you worked up the motivation to do a proper job of it. Even if it was a bit late.
I know what you mean about competitions 🙂 can’t seem to get the “right” shot for them…. But the right ones come along when they’re ready 🙂
In my opinion. A beautiful photo. Your comment about. “It was heavily overcast, and I deliberately composed it with lots of headroom.” Glad for the explanation, as I was thinking that perhaps you should have cropped about an inch or so from the top
Thanks Cecil, I think the amount of headroom is a bit subjective, some may like it, others may not 🙂
