    Here is a scene in which the viewer is left to wonder which is the main subject. It is either the foreground grouping of the two trucks and tree, or it is the building. I realize it is difficult to rearrange someone's stuff to suit your needs, so in this case you probably should have come in tight on the wagon trucks only and throw the building out of focus.

    As to the building; you have missed getting enough of it into the picture to inform the viewer about the building. Also, why is the window such an odd color?

    Designer, thank you very much for the advice.
    I was not able to open more the image of the building because it is the toilet of a restaurant and at the door just to the right marked "Men" and "Women"
    I think good advice separate by focusing, but I have doubts whether it is possible when the objects are so close to each other.
    I understand that the image does not give a message, I just liked it.
    Regarding the color of the glass, I can only say: I do not know.
    Remember his advice.
    Thank you.

    it is a good image, i like it.
    I agree with Jim,
    I think the only way you have to put the toilet out of focus is to shot again with a tele at f/4 or a 85 f/1.8....
    or do it in post processing
    what are the exif of the picture?
    cheers

    I like it.

    I think the object in the picture is the whole thing.

    But it is blue in the background and yellow in the forground; and a better balance might be achieved.

    I think that the reflection of the blue sky is the reason why the window is a blue color.

    What kind of bothers me is that the tree divides the image into two equal parts, right up the middle.

    On the other hand, the image is very pleasant and interesting. But, I wonder if cropping a bit off the top (say right below the window) might not put more emphasis on the wagons. However, it would be an image of the wagons, not an all-over image of the area and that might nopt be what you intended...

    It is a nice image despite the warts especially the mirror like appearance of each side mirroring the other sort of.

    I suppose the other option would be to crop tight to the wheels and lose the window etc. Maybe something like 2 x 1 ratio approx.
