I almost didn't post this for the very reasons pointed out about composition. As best as I recall, I was in a very narrow lane, about 3 or 4 meters wide. The camera I had with me had a 37mm - 115mm zoom. When I stood with my back to the building facade on the opposite side of the street and set the lens to 37mm, this is all I could get in the frame. I think it indeed would have been a better photo had I been able to shoot a wider angle. However, many seem to like it as is and I won't try to persuade them otherwise!

Very nice photo. Great lighting and composition.

Attractive composition based on a primary color, sharpness and contrast are ourstanding. I like this simmetry because isn't perfect adding value to the photo.

I really like the colors and the mood, but the composition doesn't work as well for me. I don't know what was below the windows, but I think a little less above and a little more below would have given it a little more flow. Also, the red brick below needs a little more or none at all for me. Krista

Very nice color, symmetry, composition. Well done
