There are plenty of disused farmhouses lying abandoned around the Chianti region of Tuscany. They just sit there crumbling away in the summer sun, waiting to be renovated as holiday homes, or to eventually collapse. This old Tuscan style water well was chained up and overgrown outside one such farmhouse. Despite its delapidated state it still holds the charm it has probably always had in the hundreds of years it has stood there.

Nice tone. Placement of the well in the composition also works. Would a slight burning of the right side of the well bring out the texture more or would it take away from the nice curve effect?

Hi Barry, It's not my best shot in the gallery and I think I need to go do some more work on it to make it acceptable - Thanks for your guidance and encouragement though.
