Simple pic made special with lighting and comp. Would like the bars in fore sharper as this to me forms an important part of pic that needs to be sharp for me in this scene. others might differ. Still a very well seen setting and well done on taking the shot

Very neat repeated pattern of the criss crossing bars, the window pane, the reflection of the bars. Nice. Love the green color.

I like the old dried up caulk and the colors in your entry.

HDR? Nice color. When I view it I feel a little closed in. Maybe pull back a bit and show the full window might look more interesting. There is a cable in the upper left corner of the image that distracts a bit from the overall image. Maybe consider a crop here.

Nice shot! is this HDR? it looks like there are some ghosts (as though the different exposures didn't line up properly) try it with a tripod next time)

Exquisite composition, color, tone, & detail. I'm, sure this is being vastly under-rated......9

Although it's bordering on that over-processed, extreme tonemapped look I'm not very fond of, you held back just enough to keep the shot interesting. Personally, I would have loved to see a wider angle shot of this with the building. No vote, I'm in this one.

Nice processing and good detail in this simple but yet pleasing image. Those green iron bars really add a nice extra effect. 8
