I would color correct the window views a bit, add some yellow, since the interior is much warmer..

If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

I actually turned down the yellow originally because it felt too warm to me. What do you mean by color correct the window views?

Here it is with some warming added back. Let me know what you think. Thanks for the feedback.

When I say color correction of the windows, it means removing (or neutralizing as much as possible) the blue cast. When you have a warm interior, the blue cast of the windows really draws your eyes..Not a bad thing if you have a great view, but not in this instance...I did a down and dirty color correction, using the tree as bark as my grey point. See the difference...it looks more natural to the eye coming from the warm room.

Check out Pole Pixie for lots of different things. A painter's pole is the cheapest, Get this adapter http://www.polepixie.c​om/proadapter.cfm (external link). Be careful which pole you get because some don't work well. I found mine at Home Depot. It's hexagonal instead of round so it won't twist and has lever locks (esier to use when extended) instead of twist locks. It extends to 23 feet. I looked for it on their site for you but couldn't find it. Sorry. You will need some type of remote release. If you want to tether you camera to a phone or tablet you will need DSLR Controller and appropriate cables or a WIFI capable camera. Here's a simple, inexpensive device that will allow you to clip you phone or tablet to the pole. It's made in two sizes - one for phones and one for tablets. http://www.ikmultimedi​a.com/products/iklipxp​and/ (external link)

All that said, I usually just use a ladder. A short step ladder will fit in my car and usually get me as high as I need to be. Hope that helps.

The light is very inviting here. Try some light painting with a gelled flash or tungsten source to add some drama to the lighting. Possibly retouch that wet spot out of the driveway too.

For composition improvement, either go further out to get the whole house, or get closer for a tighter detail shot. The focus of this image is a little ambiguous. Next time remove the ADT sign, styling is still important for exterior shots.

The doors are interesting, but having so much driveway isn't adding much for me
