I like the lot but the angles that you took the pictures from make my head hurt. Everything is distorted. Try getting lower when you take your pictures.

I do hope, Phaenoh, that your head stops hurting soon. I can assure you I didn't mean to take bad pictures.

Actually, this lot had previously been hosted on Parsimonious.org, and was built and photographed around this time more than a year ago. I always do my best work for whatever I'm attempting at the time. Hopefully I've learned a lot more about picture taking in a year, and take better photographs these days... But thank you anyway for your critique.

It's a matter of style, I think. I take pictures in the same way, and even if they can look distorded it's simply the way I, Brighten and many others just see those particular rooms. Sometimes the perspective looks falsed but it's a creative trick for getting a wide view, or I love to think that it's creative hehe .... :D
However, Brighten, this lot has a warm country elegant look and it's rich of many lovely details! Can't wait to discover all the nice corners (and walls and floors) Good luck for the contest :D

Linda, this is one of my favorite lots by you, the farm is very beautiful and I think your pictures are fine.

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Thank you lamammaforever and Christine! Good point, lamamma. We do need to take photos that show off as much of the rooms as possible. Anyway, we are not in a photography contest are we? Folks just need to get an idea of what they may expect to see around the place when they download.

Beautiful farm lot! I like the way you spaced everything out. While the lot is larger, it is very functional in design! I think the snow makes the design nostalgic! I love it. Thanks for sharing!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Wow! This lot is amazing! I love the the entire lot! Keep up the outstanding work! I read the other comment about the picture angles and I thought that they were great! I loved the night shot of the home all this time I was looking for the perfect farm, cuz whenever I attempt to build one, they don't really turn out right I can't wait to see more of your masterpieces!

Actually, this is the exact replica from Parsimonious with the exact same walls floors and furniture. This house used to be hosted there, but is no longer available from that site. It can now be downloaded here at MTS2, at http://www.cc4sims.com/, or the Sims 2 exchange. And yes, I am the artist who created it.
