I like this a lot, and what I like is the striking contrast between the areas loosely handled AND the very tightly rendered old mill. Don't feel badly if I don't FAVE it...I'm going to put you on a WATCH. Keep up the great work! Ricahrd
The restrained colour pallet is beautiful, it keeps the whole picture tied together. The amount of detail being staggered is also nice, although I think the house's shadows and details could have faded a bit more as it recedes in space towards the middle of the picture.
