Super light Richard , If I may say so ,(I know you don't mind the opinion of others) I'd love to pan a bit left though without the dark band on the right, it remains a good shot.

I like the picture and the inclusion of the shadow but wonder if that extension of wall could somehow have been cropped or maybe if you moved slightly you could have avoided it Smile

probably 90% would try and lighten the shadow..which would be a mistake as it adds mood and balance,not 100 sure about where the window cuts to be honest but as with all these things its a personal thing...but thats nit picking it deserves the awards..
