Hi Murphy
The colors are complementary and emphasize the door knocker. The texture and shapes on the door add interest. I like the painterly look. Very nice.   Posted: 02/13/2021 09:20:43

Hi Murphy,
Interesting subject...almost unreal, like it was painted. Colors are complementary. Image is sharp. It would make an interesting large print in an office setting.   Posted: 02/18/2021 16:25:39

Hi Murphy, I like the combination of colors in your image. Predominately blue with splashes of orange and yellow which are complementary. I think of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night's when looking at the colors. Sometimes it's just plain fun trying a combination of different approaches.   Posted: 02/27/2021 16:02:04
