Just an experiment - maybe you could tell me if it works or not. The only thing I did was the desaturation and a crop.

It works for me.
Maybe lose the right side but other than that great.

Definitely cracking! The whites and the colour bits come out very strikingly! I like the right side. I think it adds a bit of oddity to it which gives it some character!

Nice comp. I'd like to see this with just the doors. Click

I think I'd keep just the red door rather than the green and red, but that's just personal!

I like it, I'd keep it as it is, the bricked-in window somehow balances it.

The thumbnail of this leapt out at me. I think the desaturation works really well here. I also wondered if you could maybe lose a bit off the right side, just to balance with the distance between the left window and frame....... geometry again. But knowing your mania for exact cropping I'm sure you've already tried it.

Great shot. Love the use of selective colour.

Thanks everyone. Yeah I played with it for ages and couldn't decide so there's still loads of room for improvement. If I take the RH side in it leaves an "almost square but not quite" photo which looks odd to me. But if I compensate by adding a little more to the LH side, my pavement is all interrupted (not disappearing into the corner which I wanted). I might submit another version of this tomorrow with a different crop.

I;ve looked at this several times and like it, but also think that the right hand side is slightly distracting: it seems to disrupt the symmetry too much. I think there is potential for a superb shot though.

It very nearly works for me. The desaturation works well and I like the imbalance between the red door and the bricked in window. Where I think it could do with changing is the perspective. To me, the shot has a sort of symmetry to it which would suit a full on shot, rather than from a slight angle as here.

This was shot straight on but it's on a steep hill...hence the sloping pavement. I'll probably go back for a re-shoot as it was only a quick snap and only got a single shot. Thanks for all comments - I didn't expect this much attention for this photo!

The effect works really well but the steep hill makes the photo look like it's not shot straight on. Only a slight niggle in an otherwise great shot.
