Avery graphic shadow,the intense red brick wall adding an extra texture.
The stem is right at 1/3 so the composition is very pleasing.

The composition is spot on, Herman and the brick wall gives a very seasonal (UK Autumn) feel to the image.

A very nice juxtaposition of textures - man made vs nature made; warm colors vs cool colours, and nice shadows thrown in to spice up the mix.
