About the Image(s)

On the way coming to Venice, I saw this window in an alley. I feel interesting in this old window. It is so old because the paint is falling off. However I saw the multi colors are very nice. I took shot.
I used my Nikon D600 with zoom lens.Handheld.My setting is Manual.

A very interesting window indeed. It shows the attempts that have been made to recolor the shutters and the disrepair that they are now in. I would consider cropping out the adjacent white frame from the left side - it is a distraction.   Posted: 05/09/2020 19:45:45

Very interesting window, in deed! I love all the colors that have been applied to the shutters over time. I would suggest a bit of cropping on the left to remove the other window frame.   Posted: 05/10/2020 11:13:57

Great use of double frame within a frame setting with nice blend of color in the pealing paint off the wood. I agree about the left side issues - also I don't think the light blue is helping very much.   Posted: 05/11/2020 13:50:31

If paint could talk! I love the story it shows. The peeling paint, I feel, gives great texture along with the various colors. I like the added curves at the top that the shadows make. I agree that the window should be cropped just to the left to keep only the soft tones.   Posted: 05/11/2020 21:46:41

This is a very interesting image. Love the colors on the doors but am not happy with the blue wall on the left. You might try toning it down, or putting a texture over it to take away from the extreme brightness attracting the eye away from the doors.   Posted: 05/20/2020 12:46:13
