Without leaning out the window, i took this photo, trusting the camera's focusing.

I was fascinated by the antiquity of the building, the freshness and luminosity of the rich, red leaves and the juxtaposition of the textures.

The day was beautiful but very sunny.

Welcome to EPZ Andrea.


This is a lovely sharp and vibrant shot, all the more as you held the camera out the window! Perhaps this is a technique we should all use, point, close your eyes and see whats happens!

My one feedback for this is that the background takes away from the overall shot (the EPZ border youve used) and a simple black border would show off the shot a lot better, making a clear boundary between where the shot ends, and the background begins.


Enjoy the site,



regards


Willie

One of my favourite subjects, Andrea, Virginia Creeper or Boston Ivy.
It looks wonderful against the old building, and I like the way you have included some of the window, which is a nice feature. Your chosen format is perfect for this image, and you have some nice textures too.
The burgundy leaves are very glossy and tend to pick up any light that is around, sometimes burning out the leaves, but it looks very good here.
A bit of "wonkiness" on an old building often adds character, but I couldn't resist doing a modification where I used Perspective Correction to straighten the vertical lines. A small crop was needed after the correction, and I also adjusted Levels slightly.

Thank you, everyone. I really appreciate your comments and feedback.

Willie, I'll change that background, too. Well, if i can figure out how to edit what I've already done! Smile

Pamelajean, thank you for your interest and modifications, too. I'll give that a go, too.

Not much to add. You have a perfectly rendered image of the stone and creeper. A fine pictorial record. As an aside, this stuff may look nice, but if it's on your house, get it off. It damages stone and brickwork a lot, holding damp and being invasive to cement joins.
