Any chance you can show us a larger version of the file?

If not, I'd focus on either getting the sky into the dynamic range, or at least recomposing to make the sky a minimal part of the image.

Is this selective color? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me? And if it is, why did you make the decision to make whatever crop is growing the part of the photo in color?

I think the house would be cool, definitely something I would photograph as well, just in a different composition.

Looks like selective color, which I despise. Its application seems pretty pointless here especially when you seem to be telling us that the subject is the house.

Maybe it isn't selective color, just a muddy foreground, hazy background, and blown out sky? Still the house needs to be more prominent.

Not crazy about the selective color. Looks far too un-natural and distracting.

The house is obviously the subject, but by following the rule of thirds, he marginalized the house, and with the other problems that Qbx so succintly mentioned the photo isn't as good as it might have been. -rick
