Trying my best to create a defined focus center of the composition, that Mark Taro explained so well in his post. This time I was lucky: it was sorta naturally created for me. The brown brick building was nicely framed by white or almost-white buildings. All I had to do is avoid the temptation to put ANY color on them. And voila! I am pretty glad with the results.
And check out this flower pot on the edge of the slanting roof action!
