Pretty aspect that gets my vote but there's more potential in there in terms of contrast, brightening etc. You might also have considered rotating the image slightly anti-clockwise to get the first window dead straight.

After covering the whole village,I doubt if there is a ''straight'' window in the place,I take it you realize its up hill [and steep] I dont know when they were built,but a long long time ago.Thanks for your advice and interest Gerry

Quote: I doubt if there is a ''straight'' window in the place....

As you say, none of the building's openings look to be true, therefore it might be an interesting exercise to use the largest window - which to me is the lead in due to perspective - as an 'anchor' in the shot by straightening it. If you wanted to emphasize the haphazard nature of the doors and windows, a head on shot would have also been worth a try, particularly with the gradient of the incline in front.

Wonderful! We have cottages like this in Dunster (Somerset) and I love to see them, difficult to capture though.
I love cobbled streets and sash windows

I dont know if I'd want to straighten any part that is'nt straight to begin with..why ?.... A head on shot was impossible due to a wall behind me, Thanks for you're advice though,always willing to listen
