Quite spooky - I like it! You did very well framing the house with the trees on either side and the black and white works wonderfully here. My only suggestion would be to have put less emphasis on the ground and moving the entire photo "up" a bit, so that there's roughly a third grass, a third for the house, and a third at the top for the branches/sky. Awesome work!
No problem! I think for photography, it's fairly easy to be self-taught since there is so much information on the internet. And you certainly don't have to have an expensive camera to learn about composition! It's probably best to start on a cheap camera anyway.
Nice shot! Love the view! I really like the choice of focusing on the trees in the foreground, leaving the house as if it was forgotten background. "A picture is worth a thousand words" is so cliche, but this is the kind of picture that will tell a story if you let it.
