A window at my grandmother's old house, in Lousã, Portugal. It was drizzling so the window was semi-covered by rain droplets, that made the vegetation outside look quite like a watercolor. Actually, the effect is better percieved at full-size...

I think a different angle would have fit this set up better. Nice color and the subtle lines from the glass are very nice and essential to the image.

I'm not sure that I like the window frame within the shot. The dampness on the glass seems to give the foliage behind the watercolour look that you mention, so I wonder if just a shot through a pane would give as good an effect.

The composition is nice with the bars and the countering of the organic stem. I do get a watercolor impression, so you succeeded there, but overall the pic doesn't excite me too much. I think it's the muted colors. 6

Your photo is just like the weather outside my window right now :-) My favorite part is the lower left hand side. That's where the "green watercolor" effect is strongest for me.
