Good take, but I would like to see the building much closer...

I would take this is an overview of the estate structure to show more of a silhouetted form set against the sunset sky. Best with a darker background.

Beautiful colors and estate. Agree with Pierre though.;-)

I don't want to sound defensive but really it's not about the building
per se. It's about the perception of this magnificent building in this
expansive setting. (Moreover I've found as a group photographers
disdain space whereas I've always embraced it.)

I rather like it as is for the reason you've mentioned: the tiny-ness of the building provides the scale of the setting. Looks like a fantastic place. Great sky, btw...

A Gothic tale unfolds.

Oh yeah... It must be story time! :)

If you were to copy the image URL from FB, it would look like this:
"https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/v/t1.0-
9/1375815_736801326412069_1249072758200922480_n.jpg?
oh=57c0b816bf28db5ecc9d687c7d1386e9&oe=54DAE300&__gda__=1423416400_1529a
df0733168d41ba9d6a9236fdafa"
At which point you would paste it in to where it says "URL of the
image;" and strip out the "s" from "https" (hopefully it will display
the html code here as text)

Oh good! It worked! Now just ignore my quotes ("") and that's the
text/html code you're trying to copy...

Let me know how that works out for you...

OK That worked. But it's exactly what Iv'e been trying to do. I'll try
it on an original post tomorrow rather than a comment.

Seems like a kind of toss up though. There's a colour difference. And
more artifacts in the FB post.

agreed... the compression seems to be worse on the reposted FB image

:(

smooth gradients seem to suffer the most - try adding a bit of noise in
post production and see if that doesn't give an improved final result -
you might be surprised

Great capture Ernest. I love the colors.
