I did this painting from a photo on PMP... A departure from what I would normally paint.  I think I should have left out the front trees..Let me know what you think and what can improve this.  Thank you.

Lovely painting of such a sweet scene.  Maybe a bit more dark on the shadows to give it a bit of a POP.

This is quite good - and a lot of detail! I agree with Mea - wherever there is supposed to be shadows go a lot darker. And maybe lighten up those trees in front of the door. They too look a bit too prominent.
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you Mea, Sharon and Dennis.  I will darken the shadows and post the results.  Appreciate it.

Here is the result of darker shadows and I lightened the area at the front door.  It is not a tree but rather and arbor or trellis...I hope it looks better.
