I loved Tunisia and Souse, a great place for photos. You have spotted a lovely interesting window here. I would like to know whether you had intended the reflection of the trees to be in the window, if not, it may have paid to move around to see if it could have been avoided as it does draws the eye. Also it is a shame that you clipped of the top edge off the shutter. I would have cloned out the wire hanging in the top right corner in post processing. The light seems fine and that image is sharp, maybe just a few more moments thinking about the best place to stand, and what you want to include in the shot would have improved it (although easy to say in retrospect) . Kindest Regards - Jude

This is interesting, Manuel, and I am pondering as to whether the shutter is closed over the window when the shop is closed. I like the contrasting light and the detail on the old shutter. I feel that the composition could do with more thought because you just have two squares side by side, and I definitely feel that some more contrast is needed. I have done a modification where I added canvas to the top and cloned in the tip of the shutter strut. I also added canvas to the right and bottom, as a suggested composition that simply offsets the window and shutter in the frame. I chose the right because the window seems to be "facing" in that direction with the angle you chose. More could be added if necessary. Maybe you cropped the original and could therefore crop slightly differently. I adjusted levels and sharpness to bring out the colours and contrasts, and some extra detail.
I have just noticed your mono modification. Having brought out the colours in my own modification and seen how nice they are, I think I would stick with colour.
Pamela.
