Santiago,
I really like this one. The tones and textures are wonderful and I like the nice added feature of the electric light on the very old house.

I like the high structure you did in post. It first really well with the stucco exterior of the building.

Wonderful texture and tones. I also appreciate your angle on this versus straight on.
Very cool shot.

Santiago,
I see seven stairs and five pots . Are you counting in metric?
About the pic- I really like it. The seeing, the composition and perspective, the processing, and the subject- "Right on!" (That's the way "with it" guys used to talk.)
The older I get, the more I appreciate that in Europe things aren't torn down just because they're old .

Santiago, I very much like your composition and framing here.
I think the steps, small roof and spread out pots are a great find. Well seen.

Apart from the number of pots and stairs, Charlie, you're spot on. The doorstep isn't a stair and there really are 6 pots

Wonderful, Santiago.

Apologies. Sometimes I'm a real dullard, Santiago. I blame my parents- and my older brother who bounced me on my head like a basketball when I was young.
Man, did I miscount the number of pots! Six, yes I see six of them .
But out west we call them thar outside steps like that "steps." And out west there are seven of them .
I'll shut up now and go out to my garden and eat some worms.

I would love to call that my front door.
The image exemplifies a sense of time.

Thank you essphoto. There was quite some lassoing, feathering and Curves adjustment layers to bring the wall's roughcast to where I wanted.

Well, there are 6 pots and six stairs (the seventh belongs to the ground floor so I didn't include that one). I do count in metric, even though Switzerland had its own units way back, like the federal pot (2/3 fed pot = 1 liter) or the federal foot (divided in 10 inches of 3cm).

As for stairs and steps, it's always been a confusing issue for me, which one should I use. Especially now, image-googling "step" shows me people working out on a rigid and/or stair ?

Thanks Chris. It nice to see not only old stuff surviving, it is also nice to see modern stuff helping it to go further and further into time.
