It looks a nice view Alban and framing the scene through the window gives a fresh twist.

A couple of points though. The main interest in the pic is on the left with the house and the large hill. Without the window frame this might not have been an issue but I am wondering whether the inlcusion of the frame draws attention to the unbalance. There is not much happening on the right hand side.

Was it possible to move the objects on the window sill? Being right at the front for me they do tend to act as barrier to getting into the pic. I have uploaded a mod for you where I have cloned out the objects, just to give you an idea of what the shot would look like without them. See what you think.

I like the window framing idea and it is certainly worth experimenting further.

Best wishes

Catherine

I rather like this as it is except for one point - your name! I cannot understand why people have to put their names on the front of a shot - in this case it pulls the eye badly.

this an interesting composition, well seen and has a lot of merit, but a few things run through my mind as i continue to look for any time.

i would have like to see a tiny shift of position to centre up the exterior building in the lh window panel so that the right wall is not obscured by the central spar. the bits on the windowcill i like as they add secondary interest and create a link.

the cars down below could have been moved or could be cloned out as could the figures.

biggest thing for me is radical. crop to square across the horizontal window casement member to remove the top opening quarter panes altogether. the composition suddenly becomes really strong and concentrates the eye of the cottage .

i would have done a mod but have no ps on this pc. i may have a look tonight, see what you think and if you agree let me know.

regards,
Phil

I too would crop the top two frames and then presented the image in landscape format. I would also not included my name!!

All right, thank you very much all for the critiques!

About the objects, this picture was taken when I was moving out of this hotel, so I did not have any time to change anything about what was on the window... Tongue

Thank you for the mod, I've thought about that, but I'm not a big fan of photoshoping. I mean, I'm fine with changing the brightness, contrast, and even colrs, but not changing what's on the picture itself Grin

NEWMANP, I don't get what you are talking about with this croping thing... You just want to crop to the window itself, without all the black around ?

Thank you again !
