This place gave me the creeps. The light was bizarre, the scale was bizarre and my overall impression of the experience here can be summed up with one word: Beetlejuice. Except, this place wasn't very funny.
I didn't have the same reaction as you. Of course I wasn't there and I know what you mean about a feeling. I had the same feeling when I was down the road capturing my current image. As I look at your capture, I'm in awe. It's as if this old place with it's tree that no doubt shades it in Summer is sitting on top of the earth. I love it. sherri @ November 12, 2008
The house reminds me of the one from the movie Gone With The Wind. A fascinating photo. At first glance it's minimalist, but after some inspection there's quite a bit more. Stunning. Rachael @ November 13, 2008
Clever title. I do get an eerie vibe which is exaggerated by the leafless tree. I like how the pastels frame the landscape here. Sean @ November 14, 2008
In both color and composition, a gorgeous image.
Your 'eccentric' lining up of the edge of the tree to that of the back of the house, has created a visual paradox. Are we looking at a really gigantic tree, or, a really tiny house ?
The dribbling of dark underbrush that moves from bottom left, and falls out of the picture as it moves to the right, also adds to the oddly 'poltergeist-ish' quality of the image.
I really like it! fobbo @ November 22, 2008
I agree about the composition. It's quite unusual and it works very well. You hardly ever see the subject and the very edge of the frame like that. 613photo @ December 04, 2008
The house looks soo small against the big tree - at this place I would feel also not completely well. Cerstin @ January 16, 2012
