A wonderful composition with the tree framing it so nicely! I also love the pattern of the brick, siding and windows! The monochrome does an excellent job of bringing out all these marvelous details! Great job Stan!

Beautifully done, Stan! I'd have been terrified to try 500% in USM. You did it, and it's worked perfectly. Many congratulations on your finalist placing and best of luck in the finals!
