Abandoned log house

Star on the left was red, but was whitened by the sun. This is the sign of that in this house living veteran of WWII or a family of a soldier dead on the war. I suppose that the house was built in 20's of 20 century.

Of course. Here I have spent about 10 minutes - with more time it would be better.

There is nothing to be done with the sky as any detail is lost to overexposure - I don't like a block of white, so I have used some grunge to add some interest, but the better solution is to underexpose enough to keep detail in the sky, then to bring up shadows in post. Other than that just some minor adjustment to shadows and highlights, add some contrast, a light coffee tint, and reduced brightness and structure in the foliage to draw attention to the subject.
Thank you, I like the result. Wooden textures are playing the main game now. Really hard to compensate overexposure of the sky.

I feel 'blessed' to live full-time in our Log Home. I hope I never have to abandon it.
During the years we lived in the city, I felt "out of place".
I love the "living in the woods" life style. Now I feel I am Home

I have posted a few pictures of our Log Home in this PF Album:
