Photographer's Note

This photo is taken from the balcony of the little cheap hotel we stayed in Manaus for one night.

There are many abandoned houses in Manaus. What was little surprising for me that many of these abandon houses bear traces that once they were not just houses, but marvellous elegant houses.

The original photo was in portrait format, but with all these small windows, walls and doorways it looked quite messy composition. So I tried a landscape crop. I'll put the original version in Workshop, so tell me if what I did was any useful or if you had cropped it differently.
I don't like that the colors look a bit plain. With the green plants moving in, this could perhaps be an interesting photo to experiment with partially BW photo. But I lack skills for that :)
