Thanks to Datha's suggestion, I re-worked the image to remove some light-colored and distracting areas in some of the windows. This one submitted for the monthly theme "Green with Envy".

Wow, Terry, so much commenting on this, here and at 101! I agree with it all, fantastic image, though I didn't get to see the original. I really like that green door! :-)

Good work in the end...I'm glad you left the shadow on the door, it matches the shadows on the other windows...and the brown in those several windows balance... :-)

Thanks, Kara...I was waiting for you to say that! I'm happy about this one - having gotten great advice from the 101ers before its final submission.

Fingers crossed...
