Simple compositions can be very attractive when they have a strong impact due the colors contrast. What it is needed is strong colors and the right light...
Tip: Look for color contrasty photo themes around...They are everywere and most of the times we are passing them without notice. When you spot them....then wait for the right light!

A good series you have here with your windows. Again the colourful wall makes the shot. Though I think in this case a simpler compo without the moulding detail and lamp would have worked better. I like the way only one window has the shutters open.

La simplicité n'exclut pas la qualité : la preuve !
Outre les deux couleurs représentatives de maisons croulant sous le soleil ; j'aime cette composition aux fenêtres, l'une ouverte (laissant entrer la chaleur, mais protégée par des barreaux) et la seconde fermée par des persiennes qui semblent ne pas accepter trop de chaleur ! La lanterne placée judicieusement valorise l'ensemble de la composition.
Très bien fait, George.

You discovered a gold mine in the walls and windows.
Very well done and composed!

Strong colouring, with the two different windows, the electric cable on the lantern are nice detail, also the vertical lines in the window left, a simple but beautiful image!

Linda sequencia de fotografias arquitetonicas George. Em contraste com a anterior essa apresente uma parede com belissima cor e finissima textura muito agradável a visão. O bom uso da luz difusa evitou as sombras duras deixando a cargo do luminaria dar um toque de charme a imagem. Saudações.

Looks simple like that but is not. This is a very good composition, contrast around green and orange, lines..
I like it

Beautiful symmetrical picture with nice strong colours which creates a well pronounced contrast among themselves. And again some nice details particularly the lamp to the right, the only object that breaks the symmetry, but enriches the composition. Well seen and captured!

Simple yet very effective. The colours combine together well and the lamp gives an interesting point of detail.

Very good, George, and you are right, "simple compositions can be very attractive when they have a strong impact due the colors contrast". I liked this contrast and colours, the lamp also contribute to make this one a very attractive composition!

The title is very well chosen George, the colour is full of impact ...
Gorgeous orange and bright green. A well disposed lamp, two windows, one open, one shut. I like everything, the composition, the light and the colours, it is minimalist and I like that.
The only thing I regret is the electric wire but you can't crop because you would crop the lamp.
Congrats for this shot, George !

Continue with the series eh?? Two different type of windows and the wall with the lamp looks wonderful.
The colors of the windows and the wall are perfect. Very sharp and well composed picture George. Well done. Thanks for sharing...

The one eye is winking on the thumbnail. Here, the difference is clearer. Nery nice and moody rendition of this vivid orange wall and its two green eyes. This could have been taken here in SA as well - the omnipresent burglar bars are on all our windows!

you've said it all in your note George!
strong impact is exactly how i would refer to this picture :)
p.s thanks for the tip!
