Now THAT is some bright purple.
A couple of thing stand out to me right away. First, because the photo loaded from top to bottom, I noticed that the sky was quite a bit bright. It engulfs the leaves, and the upper edge of the house.
I think that cropping they sky to the top of the house would benefit the shot. It would still be framed on the upper corners by the leaves, and the white sky distraction would be eliminated.
The second thing I noticed right away is the wire running through the middle of your subject. Nothing really you can do about it, but I would mention that it is a distraction.
The color is great, and I think that the angle you took this at is good as well. I like the added bottom ledge of purple too. It really does look good on that blue. Maybe not something I'd personally live in, but who knows, it could grow on me.
your focus and clarity are great. I like the detail in the ledge, the window frame, and the siding.
A nice find. ~Heather~

I like the framing with the leaves, but that wire is quite the distraction.

Great colors, powerline splitting the shot is somewhat distracting.

Very vivid purple. The soft lighting seems to indicate that this picture was taken late in the day or early in the morning and works well for this image. I also like the out of focus leaves framing the in-focus window. The only thing I dislike is the powerline intersecting your photo... but you probably couldn't avoid it.

good idea and lucky find... the wire spoils it though... 3

that powerline in the middle of the picture is extremely distracting. the focus is also a tad off. 4

sky is overexposed you should be using some exposure compesation - value to get some of sky. =6

Great framing with the trees.

The telephone wire throught the middle is very distracting. NIce use of the colors though!

I love the colors and the peeking through the trees. I also like the scewed tilt of the house, it makes the image more dynamic. I'm sure some people will tell you to change it. Is that a telephone wire? Well, that sucks, but not your fault. Great job.

This could've been a great picture but the line in the middle ruins everything :(.

Oh! I really like the colours in this. Well seen and good composition.
