    Wendy, amazing textures, tones and contrasts in this presentation! Have you tried bringing just the color of the vine back into the image? Excellent composition as well!

"Divine" and creative title to go with the subject matter. I like the rustic wood look and the composition of the image.

What a title! This will win something somewhere Wendy! It just so darn well done.. I think it is just perfect this way but you'll most likely pull out something even more amazing with that desat.

Wendy, I think if this was in color it would be boring, this way gives that feeling of days gone by.

Thanks Doc. I'm workig on the other version and you'll get to judge for yourself:-) This is really an IR plugin effect I applied - not just desaturation:-) The IR gives the greens that white look which I kind a liked:-)

Hi Wendy!

I love this photo! The harsh lines and square-ness of the wall and window are complemented perfectly by the vine. Also the title is so creatively perfect. A very nice shot. Well done!
