[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taking a snap of a white wall is allways a challenge. The balance between shadows and highlights must be carefully weighted. Here the shadows give depth to an otherwise flat image. You can see the forms of the grids protecting the window only by its shadows, as the front view makes them seem like straigth lines. Slight underexposure allows the picture to keep some of the texture of the wall.

Paulo, this is a great and artistic picture. You were able to masterly mix romanticism and geometry. (Same as for some other pictures in your gallery. Great job!

Well seen, well captured, Paulo. You're right, some underexposure works wonders in many occasions. I think I might have cropped just a tiny bit more from the bottom, to avoid the black "stripe" there. I also think your sensor needs cleaning as I can see two round spots just above (and to the right) of the window's top edge... at f/20 dust bunnies are more likely to reveal themselves.
Apart from that, you succeeded in showing us the shape of the grid. Nice play of light and shadow here.

belle composition j'aime l'effet que s fait
