    There is a lovely serenity to this place. The sunlit bushes add warmth to the cool grey of the stone walls. Nice texture and detail.

    Great contrasts, small window & big wall, golden leaves & stone colors. Good placement of the window framed by the doorway.

    I like the way the warmth of colour in the glimpsed garden gives importance to the window in the cool grey wall.

    VERY NICE, THE LAYERED WALLS AND LIGHT LEAVES IN THE WINDOW MAKE THIS IMAGE... I MAY HAVE TRIED TO LIGHTEN THE YELLOW BUSH ON LOWER RIGHT. IN MY TOP FAV.

    Like how the light calls attention to the window. Consider cropping off the right-hand third.

    I love the golden glow of the foliage. Could be the same species of tree as one of your competitors. I just wish the doorway wasn't 10 times the size of the window. Maybe it would have been better suited to the last challenge?

    Excellent shot. I love how the lit window is framed by the similarly shaped arch, and highlighted by the sunlit trees. The lighting is also good, with the slightly different hue of the inner wall giving depth to what might otherwise be a rather flat scene. The shrubs and trees add attractive splashes of color, and the statue adds a little extra interest. Personally I think cropping out the window on the right would simplify and strengthen the image a bit, but that's probably just me (I love simplicity :-).

    Serene, peaceful, warm. Those are the words that come to my mind. Beautiful image perfectly composed. It's just a bit soft, the only minor distraction I see.

    This is a striking image and perfect for the theme. The lighting is spot on and the composition is excellent. Wonderful job.
