One of my top choices with a 7 - I never got back to bump any, but I liked this a lot. What I like best is that, with the exception of the bit of bushes in lower right, the scene could exist in selective color. A house could be white and gray as could tiles, door hardware could be silver, porch lights turned on would be yellow. And I love the geometry here.

Simple but effective.

Your main subject seems insignificant enough even using the desat/sat and its way up high towards the edge of the image where one has to roll the eyes upwards to an uncomfortable angle to view it.
