    Looks as though you have done something wrong with the upload, Catalina, as there is only image visible.

    But regarding that photo. It needs a bit of rotation, unless the walls really are leaning backwards.

    Also a different camera angle would help to 'move' that electricity pylon. Otherwise not too bad.

    The light angle is a problem and you are getting quite a strong shadow/sunlight line in places. But that can be difficult to avoid.

    But apart from all that, and going by the title, where in Italy is this "casa".

    But the windows do not look right for a house in Italy.
    Or maybe it is in Spain?.

    Hola, Catalina!

    Regarding the posted picture of your country house:

    1. go into the settings on your camera and turn off the date function.
    2. frame your subject closer (more house, less landscape)
    3. avoid distracting elements in the background such as the tower
    4. try to get better light (earlier or later in the day)
    5. try to hold the camera level (or you can rotate the picture on your computer)

    "Mi casa de campo" Is in La Ceja, Colombia, South America.

    Thanks for all the advise. I wonder how to avoid the electric pole. I would have to take the pic from the back of the house and this is not a beautiful angle.

    It is not a very beautiful house. But becomes it is a material that becomes handy to learn to take better pics.

    By the way, I feel comfortable with your critique because I learn.

    thank you very much

    You will have to move around to find the best position for the shot where the tower is not in the frame.

    If that is unavoidable, then you can "remove" the tower and power lines while editing the photo in your computer.

    If you can get a position where the electric pylon is 'beside the house' and in the distance, it will look better than 'coming from the roof'.

    Alternatively, it would be possible to 'remove' it with a little bit of careful cloning.
