No Room at the Inn...

... but still plenty of space in the stable.

Nativity scene stable outside my church waiting to be taken down and put away for the season.

Fiddled with in ribbet.com
Rather a bittersweet shot now that Christmas is over! Nice editing.

Intriguing subject. I might have cropped or cloned the pole out of it but it is a very poignant image.

@farmreporter Thanks, Wendy.
@grammyn Katy, thanks for giving me the feedback on the pole. It's helpful to know what others think. I deliberately included the pole -- chose to use the POV that showed it. I cropped some off to the right of it, but left the pole. For some odd reason I like intrusive verticals like pole or tree in the foreground of some shots, dividing the space. But that could be just my taste. I know it's not classically good composition and, as I said, it's really helpful to know if it works for others or is just a distraction or whatever.

@mcsiegle I hesitated to mention it but wondered if you saw it or not. sometimes our eyes automatically eliminate what the camera always sees . In the end it is all about your preference as it is your photo. Thanks for your explanation

Nice textures in the brick, the straw and the roof.
