An image which is beautiful yet rather emotive, a good balance I think...

This is a gorgeous subject - the contrast of glossy, fresh green leaves and the weathered, peeling textures of the wall and window. Nature reclaiming her own...
For me, this would benefit from having the angles adjusted to 'true'. I do thing that full square, face on, conveys contrasts better. You may not want to do it, but if your software permits, try skewing this. In Adobe software go to Image > Transform > Skew. Show the Grid for guidelines. You can drag each corner individually, sideways or up and down.
It can easily look false, particularly if there are strong shadows, but in this case I think it would work.

Thank you Moira for your suggestion.My software has another tool, the mesh wrap tool, which works like that you said me. I tried and upload v2. I also have had a third version, where I cropped the part above the window

I found a similar window when I was out visiting a nearby town - with the same difficulty as you - the window was high up and of course my image suffered from vertical distortion. Shooting straight on definitely helps the ability to correct in post process. I like Lightroom for this kind of work as you can adjust horizontal, vertical skew as well as rotate the image.

Mousing over from 1 to 2 the fig tree is starting to move to the right Smile

This is a lovely shot, but very sad for me, an abandoned school = abandoned society i bet the figs this time of the year would taste nice.
Well spotted.
