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 :-)

Interesting original photo,well done.

Daily Photograph
It is the symbiosis you created between the photograph and the frame which makes the picture. Extravagant!

Cherlyn .
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.

A very beautiful shot. The natural frame provided by branches is what makes this photograph work.

Very good composition Cherlyn, lovely details. Only nitpick - perhaps another type of fonts will be better. ^_^

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.

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.

Ray Wei
One of the best house front photos I've seen. Great job.

Ken Beilman
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.

Ada Ipenburg
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:)

Mohsen Nafar
The border is not good. it takes care to the border not the photo.

Colin Carron
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!

A.K. Sircar
Beautiful composition,Cherlyn. Thanks for the information about Peranakan.

Pulok Pattanayak
Excellent composition.

Lee Jianmin
