    Doesn't take long, a few winters are enough. Very colorful image.

    Hi Nandakuma. The image appears to have extra contrast and saturated reds from what I am guessing the building looked like when you took its photo. Having said that, if you prefer the image this way, that is OK and I wouldn't touch it.

    How long does it take for nature to reclaim a house in your part of the world? I am curious because in the dry, cold north even a house in the forest would take ten or more years of utter neglect to get even close to this.

    I do tend to think the saturation is a bit much, unless those are the real colours. The leaves in the foreground are a bit overexposed, maybe just darken them a bit. Otherwise an interesting image.

    I love this photo. Personally I would probably like less contrast, more shadow detail. And the bottom right foreground has a distracting plant stem. Finally, I might try a very subtle vignette, but not sure if it would work. Thanks again for sharing your great images

    True.... I remember a great saying:"Nature has every thing for every body's need but not that much as to satiate their greed"

    Thank you very much sir; i regret now that i did not verify what kind of a building was that; i think it was some official building abandoned...

    Thank you very much sir; how long a building will last here...that depends upon the size and cost of the contractor's house; if it is an enormous stuff, take that his construction for others last healthy for a few years only...
