Yes, Pnina, someone born from a mixed marriage of 2 persons from 2 different cultures are called Peranakan but this is only applicable in South East Asia.
Glad that you all like this picture & the frame :-)

Excelente trabajo Cherlyn,, perfecto encuadre y un bello color,, PN, no seven....6/6.
Cherlyn....I am.. Looking forward 2, and visualizing the outcome with your imaginative and Colorful photography .~~Regards~ Satya~
Cherlyn, Great great display of the door. Nice capture too. Is it your house? :-)
Interesting original photo,well done.
It is the symbiosis you created between the photograph and the frame which makes the picture. Extravagant!
Peranakan: is any native born Indonesian of mixed Indonesian & foreign ancestry. In Singapore, Malay mixed with Chinese can aslo be classified as Peranakan.
This is a typical Peranakan doorway entrance, with a swinging door with carvings in front of the main door.
Thanks for viewing & comments.
yes, DP photograph + frame = art
Cherlyn Like everyone else, I like this very much; the framing with the leaves and the details are excellent. Thank you for posting.

A very beautiful shot. The natural frame provided by branches is what makes this photograph work.
Its a wonderfull image. No doubts about that. Congrats!
like the way u frame the image with plants in foreground, very nice Cherlyn. Regards
Very good composition Cherlyn, lovely details. Only nitpick - perhaps another type of fonts will be better. ^_^
Cherlyn, Beautiful presentation!
Kaushik,I wish this is my house too but it's not. This was located in one of the prestige area in Singapore.
Glad that the frame works here for most of you.
Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments.
Peranakan It was interesting to read About Peranakan , is it related to Chinese Ming Dynasty. OH..no i am drifting away from the photograph ,.......BEAUTIFUL COMPOSITION. I just love there Embroidered Shoes, are very much back in fashion,i happen to read. Please correct me if I am wrong.~~Regards~~Satya~
Ciao Cherlyn! With your beautiful work I am always behind everyone else in congratulating you and this is no different. But hen as they say "...Better Late...". Great image and a great composition. Congratulations.
seckin aziz top
cherlyn storytelling shot.good details and composition.liked natural frame.
Cherlyn , interesting explanation of the culture, I understand that the name means "mixt marriage" ? anyway , interesting door,nicely framed by vegetation. Pnina
Satya, It is not related to Ming Dynasty. Peranakan is a South East Asia culture. And you are correct about the embroided shoes which is back in fashion now. Traditionally, tiny coloured beads are hand sewn on the shoes to create beautiful designs. I have a pair too, left from my grandmother. I'll try to take a photograph of it.
One of the best house front photos I've seen. Great job.
Personally, I think the frame really enhances this image and lends a very artistic feel to it. Nicely done, Cherlyn.
I am glad,You bring this to us Cherlyn.very skillfull photographed,the doorway and the plants are seperate,there is room between them ,but still the composition ,both belongs together.That makes such a accurate looking Exterior.
Wonderfully framed image, Cherlyn. I really love this intimate view through your splendid created 'window'. Beautiful and original! A pleasure for my eyes. Many greetings, Ada:)
The border is not good. it takes care to the border not the photo.
Crisp detail and harmonious colours. I'm not usually keen on big frames as I think the image should stand by itself. In this case the frame works well though I'm not sure about the backwards title!
Beautiful composition,Cherlyn. Thanks for the information about Peranakan.
7/7 Excellent examples of renovated Peranakan terrace house. Original Framing from the trees. I find the carved door frames very unique too.
EXCELLENT!!! Yes , very nice piece!!! Congr.
Cherlyn, interesting, beautiful entrance, and the frame you have created is, not only enhances its beauty but makes it a warm invitation.
