A beautiful find Tammy. These old ruins just make us want to know the history behind them. You did a beautiful job of centering the picture, got the details of the brick work down and I love the two doors and the large window that survived the destruction. What is nice to is the colors of the ruins and the trees are backed up by that gorgeous sky. Outstanding work. #11673960
