I think sepia is a good choice for this image. You're right about the over exposure as well. But your ocmposition is very good- the angle of the door with the light falling on it is excellent. Does your camera take RAW images? If it does you might be able to bring the details back in on this one if you open 2 versions of the file, one exposed for the light areas and one exposed for the rest, and then use a layer combination to merge them in. Or even the Merge to HDR feature. It looks like from some of your other photos that your camera tends to overexpose the bright areas- or perhaps you just like to shoot with dramatic light. :) In any case if the light is very dramatic and you feel like there's a possibility of it being blown out, take 2 images, exposing one for the hot bits and one for the rest and then combine them in Photoshop- I do this occasionally because I light dramatic lighting and you just can't capture all the necessary detail otherwise.

Thanks for sharing!
