Quite an interesting image and comp, i like it!
I might burn the left edge by 15%-20% and the right edge by about 5% (Or put a black frame around the sucker)but that's it.

I'm not sure the roof area or the bit of path really add anything here. It's all about the door and window backed up by the wall for me. I'd be cropping this differently myself.

Love the texture here, Lorey.

I like the texture as well, but also have to agree with MA - I find the roof/shingles distracting from what I percieve to be the main theme of this image

Thanks to all for viewing and comments.

I realized after posting that the word that I thought was LIQUOR that is slightly embedded in the texture is something else. I'm not sure exactly what it is. I have a shot of the complete building and brought out all the letters in the word and it looks like it ends with OE'S but I can't make a positive ID of two letters. But I just left the title alone.

I assumed that is was an old liquor store at one time, and may have been. Now is it used for storage for a manufacturing company. That's the reason for the barrels in the window.

I thought the juxtaposition of the top left diagonal made it a better image than just a crop of an old building with different textures. That would be common and mundane. Being red I think It also adds to the color balance of the photo. If I do put it to a print I would crop out the thin strip of gravel at the bottom though.

Marko, it does look better on a black background.

Thanks again. Your comments are appreciated.

I like how the triangled bits detract from the square angles, making the image more abstract
