I really like this – the jammed blind really makes it! A 🙂

Thanks, Adrian. I doubt I would even have noticed this window if it weren’t for that jammed blind.

The beauty of a harmonica… good colors as well.

Thank you, Harrie. I think this photo probably has an unnatural blue cast. But I liked it, so I left it.

Very good image. Like it a lot.

Thank you. I always take an extra look at blinds that are bent in some way, but too often a reflection in the window throws things off, spoiling my composition. I was lucky this time.

I like this very much too, not only for the great subject matter – you seemed to get a very flattened perspective, that gives the blinds especially a nice graphic quality, like a drawing. And I think you chose to include exactly the right amount of window. I see what you said above, about the unnatural blue – that adds something, too – and the lack of reflection, which does really help. 🙂

Thank you, Lynn. That’s me all right: shooting a flat image. . . Actually, that brick wall is a reflection of the wall in back of me. Somehow it does’t look that way. It may have something to do with my trusty polarizing filter being accidentally turned the right way. I would have liked the bottom of the composition to have ended with the window frame, but the bottom of the frame was further down, and in between the bottom of this composition and the bottom of the window frame was yuck.

😉 Yuck, yes, I’m familiar with that showing up in unwanted places!!
