About the Image(s)

I believe this colorful house is from our 2017 trip to Lunenberg, Nova Scotia. Now that I'm in a monochrome group, I wondered how it would look in B&W. Not so much. But I continued playing with it, restoring color to the roses and doing some selective dodging, burning, etc in PS. My husband walked by and said he liked it. I think the original, sans the car, is much more interesting. Please opine. Sony 6300 34mm, f/ll, 1/250.

Good composition as you did well by cropping from sides and converting the building B & W.The flowers stand out well.   Posted: 09/18/2020 03:18:17

Cropping the extraneous car out is an excellent move. Things either add or detract from an image, don't they? And to the great benefit of the image you've also cropped out the extraneous colors as well. Very cool. That really heightens the interest in the window frame which to me has a storyline, age (represented by the somewhat sagging and decrepit frame) counterpoised against the aliveness and beauty of the roses.
Definitely a rich and likable image.   Posted: 09/19/2020 11:30:59
