From large to small. Not only large buildings can have beautiful facades, also small houses may be nicely decorated.
This photo is an example from eastern Switzerland, a typical Graubuenden house with nicely decorated façade showing pictures of native animals, the Capricorn and Wild Goat as well as white mountains.
The Canton of Graubueden is the largest and easternmost canton of Switzerland, sharing local borders with the cantons of Ticino, Uri, Glarus and St. Gallen and international borders with Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. Graubuenden is also home to three of Switzerland's ethnic groups and the subsequent languages of Swiss German, Italian and Romansh are all native to the state.
It is also the only canton in Switzerland where the Romansh language is still spoken.

Quelle belle maison et avec quels soins le propriétaire l'entretient et l'embelli. De très belles fresques sur les murs.J'aime beaucoup le ciel gris derrière qui accentue les couleurs à l'avant plan.

You're capturing well this building by a good angle and excellent tone/ckarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the lovely house with red tiled roof decorated façade showing pictures of native animals. Here seems to the comfortable place blessed with the rich natural environment of the place between mountains. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.

A spectacular and interesting building in nice surroundings. The colours are very nice and well saturated and it's great to see a person standing on the balcony.

A stunning composition with this nice chalet that has captured, with the beautiful contrast between the wood and the wall sporting a pretty painting, flowers in the window and the trees surrounding it, gives a great charm to the whole.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

Very good composition. I am learning composition from you.
The misty background is very well shown by you. A good pic. Thanks for sharing.
PS : I am learning from your constructive comments on my pics.

Miro, I page through your gallery and I think that it would be nice to see your pictures as postcards everywhere!!
so very beautiful and so representative of your country!! It's been long time since I've visited there and I like very much what I see...a nice stroll to memory lane...

What a colourful house with fantastic painting on the walls. The owner must be having great aesthetic sense. The colourful house is liven up the scene despite the brooding black sky. Nice photo with superb vibrant colours. Thanks for sharing.

A little change of pace I see, same concept...but a completely different result being out in the rural areas. No loss of interest or visual imagery though, this is just as impressive and attractive! I guess this is a good way to make your house stand out from the neighbors, yeah? :) A photo filled with color and texture, you've done a great job in combining so much detail and element into a singular frame. Bright and sharp, this is very pleasant mixture of natural and man-made/painted scenery. Enjoy the new day. Take good care.
For some unknown reason, when I click the 'useful' button on your pictures, it takes me directly to your website. Strange, because it doesn't occur with anyone else!? Needless to say, I do enjoy your notes, even if it doesn't show. :)
ourania (35100) 2014-04-03 8:58
this is an elegant composition, I like how the cottage lies within your frame, the perspective is interesting and you have made good management of the surrounding elements. There are eye-catching details and the painted wall is well presented. The way you have treated the colours is creative and has given the scenery an intriguing graphical aspect. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
abmdsudi (45704) 2014-04-03 13:47
Thanks to your notes, this is esthetically so pleasing classic country house full of great details, vibrant colours and that special traditional wall decor - artwork work is admirable when the fine weather makes it standout hinting at so much more. There's more sense of context and story in an interesting perspective that really makes you wonder around and think. I like the inclusion of the lady catching the eye as well as strong anchor point to pick up other details better
and you really did your best here. Good to see the extra element in this shot guided by your excellent foreword. Fascinating, TFS

Nice house well taken from a good angle, interesting contrast between the painting on the wall and the wooden part around windows, well seen.
