[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's the front of that old abandoned beauty that my son and I visited recently in Fauquier County, Virginia. Michael has a great picture of the porch to the left with the vines literally covering over the roof. It must have been spacious and beautiful in its day.It's interesting that the window frames (see my other photos) have different color frames and you can see where it must have had shutters. I wonder if it could be restored.

Amazing old house - what a subject to photograph! I do love it.

Biggest problem with this shot is the sky. If not for the washed-out, overexposed sky - if the sky was blue, or dark with clouds, the shot would be awesome.

So how important is the background when you have a great subject? Well the question is really - how serious are you about getting a great photograph? Most of us, myself included, would answer "not that serious." But true professionals, committed artists, would find a subject and then come back, to find the right day, the right angle of the sun, the right weather, to turn a good subject into an amazing shot.
