I like this a lot - telling details isolated from the 'bigger picture' can give a very effective sense of place. And mono really concentrates attention on shapes, textures.

Some of the lines and edges look a bit over-sharpened to me but that's a matter of taste, I know. I don't really dislike the effect here, it gives an ink-and-wash stylisation..

The horizontals are very neat and satisfying, (and quite possibly more 'correct' than in the actual building!) The only change that I might consider would be a bit of skewing at the top corners, to get the verticals nearer to true.

Mod to follow if I can get what I want...

A fascinating image capturing the effect of that lovely hot sun in Malta, with the peeling paint and cracking wood. With that in mind, the modern door in the top row rather spoils the effect which you couldn't do much about at the time, but a bold crop to concentrate on the bottom row ("less is more") is a possibility. Wonderful place Valetta - lots of history and chances of photos like this.

Its a nice shot. Im not sure why you used HDR and then went to mono, - did it make a lot of difference?

A small amount of convergence as you were tilted upwards I assume, but easily corrected if you wanted to.

A good point I think by Geoff about that more modern (its old, just looks cleaner!) looking door, which can be covered by copying the one below over it if you wanted to show it all with the same patina.

If this is HDR I would not have known. Not often I say that, although I'm not sure why you needed HDR. That's probably why it's not obvious. A well composed strong and interesting image. Well done.
