It looks too new to be a believable Ohio's first General Store. Is that PVC siding?

If this were my shot, and not having a tilt-shift lens, I would have left a lot of room around the edges so that I could straighten the verticals in post processing.

It looks a little underexposed.

A nicely composed image.

The bit of blue sky at the top right is wonderful - just what my eyes wanted to see in an image that is otherwise somewhat drab, as far as lighting is concerned.

Some sunlight on the building would really help to showcase the store more effectively. I am wondering if there is ever a time of day when there is sunlight on these two sides of the building.

A slight counter-clockwise rotation would straighten out the most dominant vertical line, which is the downspout on the corner of the building. I realize that doing so would take the vertical on the far right even more out of plumb, but it might be best to sacrifice that for the improvement of the image as a whole. Or better yet, as Joe recommended, you could use software to straighten out all of the verticals.

It's not the "original" They re-built it about 10 years ago...

There was also another building next to it that would be in the shot then, I actually cloned the bit I did get into the shot out.

I did use the camera correction in PS, but it didn't fix them all the way sadly :(

The angle was somewhat of an "artistic" choice, this is how you see the building as you approach it coming up the hill....

The main thing for me is what Tom mentioned already. Fix the dominant vertical line so that the downspout is straight. It looks like the building is leaning backwards. More light on the building would be nice too as it seems underexposed.

Why does the downspout have to be straight? (serious question)

I'd still like to know about what sunlight falls on this building at different times throughout the day. That warm, creamy off-white color that comprises the majority of the building can look really awesome when it has direct, soft sunlight on it. It's just one of those colors / tones that doesn't look its best when illuminated with drab, diffused light.

This was somewhere around 5:30 PM, so I imagine much earlier in the day would produce a better lighting...

It's about an hour from my house, so it's a possibility of going back up there sometime. in the winter I imagine it could be a very interesting subject.

Because it would make the rest of the building appear to be standing straight. It's leaning in both directions right now, so to at least have the largest vertical towards the center straight will make it seem straight.
