    Magical image, Carolyn! Knowing you (like I know myself, in this respect, I'll just bet you dramatized this image with the storm clouds! They're wonderful, and make this entry a sure winner!

When the senses of the viewer are touched by a picture it is right to congratulate the photographer. Many congratulations for this. Makes me feel being there.

Good framing here Carolyn. Typically these New England shoreline homes are huge and rambling and I would have a hard time not including all of it in the photo but as I sit and admire what you've done here I must agree the framing is just perfect. This Floridian, once a Rhode Islander has only to look onto this scene and become home sick. I just love it!
