    Nice shot. One could just cover it with a nice big blue tarp also!

    Have a great day!

    The paint would help it stand upright! Nice shot, WIllard.

    Nice shot, Will. Great find. I would explore zapping the white building in the BG.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Nice! I like it as is, no paint needed.

    I considered this originally, Tom, but felt that it made it too postcard like, something i would like to avoid.

    Save the paint. The vines will keep it together for a while longer.

    Nice one! I agree with leaving the background building there but you might want to tone down the bright areas in it. Right now the point of maximum contrast is where that building meets the shadowed foliage and it tends to draw the viewer's eye.

    Whites toned down

    I think that's better.

    Toning down works wonderfully.

    Great structure and yes, the vines will probably keep it standing for a few more years.

    Solid image and fine presentation.
