Welcome to TL Philippe! I like this old type BW photography! The sky is a bit over powering. I did a WS for you, showing you how to use pp work to enhance your subject matter! Hope you like it! Love the road here as a lead in line!

Any landscape is a complicated mixture of
colors, tones, textures, forms, and
perspectives. If you simply point the camera
in a general way at such a potential jumble of
subject matter it is likely to result in an
uninspiring picture, so it is important to have
a clear idea of how you want the elements to
relate to each other. here are some tips
Try to be selective about
what you include in the picture. By careful
choice of viewpoint and lens focal length you
can decide which elements are important and
how you can best arrange them within the
confines of the viewfinder. This task is often
simplified if you can identify one element as
being the main subject. like the house and make it the dominant feature.
you have done well here in the pov you could try a vertical shot low down showing the path leading to the house more.
In black and white photographs, however, it
is the contrast of light and shade and the
tonal gradations of white through black that
dominate the picture. What might appear
distinct and obvious in color often becomes
more ambiguous once the color content is
removed, resulting in a more subtle picture
open to a different interpretation.
have fun.
