And I thought Mississippi had a lot of double letters! I like the layering and the very colorful homes in this very lonely, isolated place. I do think, though, that it could have benefited from the use of a GND filter along the lighter horizon above the homes.

Striking composition and colors. In Italy, in certain historic areas, home owners must paint each exterior home with approved (by local authorities) colors. This image seems like the probable "authorities" had balanced color composition (from this perspective) in mind.

Interesting how the buildings look so alike-likely all built at the same time? Makes me wonder what the people do who live there in such an isolated spot. Very colorful!

You have really captured the harsh existence of this remotest of settlements, the inhabitants of which mostly survive by their hunting and fishing as they are iced in for most of the year. Your brief glimpse of their 'summer' still looks way too desolate for me!
