Not bad pic, but the composition here could go both ways IMO.

Makes the place look forbiding and bleak - great shot for the ghost hunters.

does give it a forboding look, but overall way to distracting. call out the ghostly landscaper and remove those trees

I intentionally took the picture from behind the trees. Thought it would give it an interesting look rather than just taking a traditional pic of the house.

Pretty cool. The trees are obviously an issue. I think it might work well if it were cropped a bit more closely. The way it is now, the emphasis is on the trees. If it were closer, it would put more emphasis on the house THROUGH the trees
