Looks like there would be plenty of arachnids begging for a photo shoot behind that window, Moira Grin Carol

I did compose these very carefully, Francesco, for the proportions within the individual frames - and to include shall we say variations on the rule of thirds...

We are both on a similar theme today Moira. This is uniquely composed image within an image.

Windows

Across the headlands
The forest masses
Under gray skies
And mist
Into a solid wall
Of muted gray
Through which cars
Glide skirting noiselessly
The rocky edge.
Through a window
I watch, windows are
For watching -
Square pieces of life
Ever changing.

I was just going to say what Nathan Said.

Do we need to see the oil can or is the handle sufficient. I think it is.
Framed to perfection...

I think the oil can might warrant a return visit, Danny.
Thanks everyone.

Clever use of the framing but v1 does look stronger for having part of the outer frame.

I have been doing a study of windows lately-- this is working well with lots of interest and depth to the image!

One wants to see beyond, such is the intrigue which this image conveys - especially with that handle (v1, lower left) in sight. Nicely cob-webbed too.

I'll have to look for some old windows. I really like this. Gets my curiosity working, wondering whats to be seen through the window......Sandy

A fine shot, Moira - like both versions, and after much toggling between the two, can't decide which I prefer! Wink

The window framed by a partial frame, the window within a window, smaller windows within the window that is within the main window, and the view beyond. Detail galore in what at first glance is a mere window with part of its frame missing.

Clever.

I really like V2 -- seeing a window through a window through the eyes of a photographer.
VERY nice.

I think this is the nearest to my thoughts on this fine photo, regards Leon, a perfect balancing act.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I like your reflection in v2, it looks like you seized this window of opportunity with both hands
