2. Straightened.
3. Removed distracting electrical wires over balcony and building.
4. Resized for PSA and sharpened.

The powerful colours found Buenos Aires needing touch up allows one sense the texture and spirit of this city over being total clean allows one to just think why would be these colours etc.   Posted: 05/05/2020 19:56:29

It is amazing that although there are so many colors in this capture, my eyes found the subject of the door right away. The "Romeo" balcony wrapped around the door is a great addition. Also the louvered door mimics the lined panels on the walls. Also, the painted shape in the lower left bottom, somewhat looks like a person looking at the upper door and balcony.

Good seeing and capture.   Posted: 05/13/2020 20:39:03

I love this. My type of image. The aged, run-down colours in a random pattern works well in your favour. As Kathleen said, the dark shape bottom left, looks like a figure looking into the scene and towards the window and door. Well spotted.   Posted: 05/17/2020 05:06:04

The juxtaposition of the old colonial doors with the modern mural is great. Those doors could be cut out using Photoshop and dropped into a building in the French Quarter in New Orleans and they would fit perfectly.   Posted: 05/17/2020 14:05:33

Hi Barbara, Wonderful image, well spotted, I liked the colours, patterns and textures, they all compliment each other and leave a slightly grungy feel to the image, makes you want to ask what goes on behind the doors.   Posted: 05/19/2020 07:15:55
