I really like all of what I see here - the subject, your framing and the finish of the photo

I remember Grafton and this particular house. Your desaturated approach to color, and your use of a small child in the foreground, seated in an odd crouch, and looking off into the distance, gives the image a surreal feeling, suggestive of the Andrew Wyeth painting, "Christina's World."

I love this! V

Wow! What a catch and the desaturated colors give it just the right feel and sense of mystery.

The house looks pretty good from the outside. I miss the "abandoned village" concept, although we do have one on former Army land.

Marvellous capture.

I agree with the previous comment....very eerie image. Great editing to create this mood.

Looks almost post-apocalyptic; after the nuclear winter, only one lone starving child remains.
