Simple and beautyful very nice shot José, Bravo.

Ola Jose

I like the simplicity of the composition. The subdued lighting reveals the textures of the cracked paint lower left. Good use of shadows in the compo. Parabens & obrigado!

Hello Jose...
I love the shadow play here! Well seen, and you compose superbly by use of the window in a very pleasing manner... Good textures in the wall, well done!

Una footografia de luz suave, agradable. Bella composicion José!
La dinamica entre una sombra de un bello arbol y lo desconocido del otro lado de la ventana es de una gran creatividad, muy artistica. Obrigado y Feliz 2006 con muchas, muchas fotografias:):)
PS: Quizas con una leve rotacion y un pequeño 'crop' podrias haber sacado el numero 20 y la sombra de las tejas que son un poco distrayentes..imho ;)

Very balanced and natural photo.
Vey good

I really envy you for this pic:) amaizing compo of two different "materials":) directly to my fav:)


I like that minimalist style for the colors! It's very nice presentation and mood! I imagine the warm feeling of a nice evening...

Nice use of shadows and window placed in a very important position. I would have cloned out the '20' on the far left as I find it distracting.

Great composition Jose, love the shadow detail


Hi Jose,
this is wonderful.
The last warm sunbeams for the day and this wonderful shadow on the romantic house.
Well seen and excellent captured, thanks, I love it

so mediterrenean look.very simple compo,so well used shadow and the light .beautiful framework,

Very nice composition Jose, the lighting is beautiful on this wall and the playing of the shadow interesting. Your frame is well done too.
I have just a remark : IMO, the pic would have been better with a little crop on the left and upper parts to remove disturbing details on the wall :)
Take care,

Very good; attractive view; just your frame disturbs a bit in the upper part; and of course the number.
Good work Jose

Well seen, and beautifully captured. Nice photo!

Great one, Jose! Man-made, God-made.

Hi, Jose
Another excellent photo, with a great combination of shadows and light. I really, really like the warmth of the low sunlight, and also the texture of the wall. The window adds to the contrast.

The only thing; consider either removing (cropping) the numbers (at the left side) or including them as a whole in the picture

Good work!

Olá Sergio!

Que linda foto, gosto desse tipo de composição!
Achei interessante a sombra da árvore!

Ficou ótimo, parabéns!
