    Vibrant colors indeed, Les. And I can smell the spices of Provence coming from behind the window. Excellent POV and clarity on this outstanding capture.

What a wonderful find, Les. Your composition is just right--love the inclusion of the door on the left. Great texture here, too, with the stone and rough wood in the shutters and door. And of course the colors are appropriately vibrant. Happy Theme Day.

Wonderful colors and textures Les! I also think a version without the purple door on the left (more of a symetrical design) would make a nice image also :0)
Well done!!
