I like the span of colors in the one with the bench. I'd probably consider correcting the leaning lines in post processing.

I really like the last three shots, the bench/door one being my favorite for a photo shot and the old rugged cross being my favorite for context.

I don't know if I would straighten it or not. Give it a try and compare but I think as it is, it has a certain quality. Perhaps it is that I think of something this rustic as not being perfect.

Thanks for posting. Inspirational.

Gabriel, # 2 and 3 are very good shots but I agree with Ole and would straighten the lines.

Take care, Heinrich

The colour difference on the door and ceiling are quite nice, is that because it is difference wood?

I quite like the first shot with the dog, which could probably make one heck of a shot with better composition.

Your shots, although not the same, are very similar to another poster, Aurelian - do you know eachother? Both from Bucarest.

Yes Aurelian is a friend of mine . We were in a open space museum. A museum about the culture of romanian people and history, if u come here you would come here you could visit the houses inside and see how they lived and .. find alot of interesting stuff. Thank you for your good words about my photos, i am new in photography and i try the best i can with my small equipment.

ps : sry for my poor writen english

The door/bench photo is great, such character.

With regard to the written english, no apologies necessary from my perspective.

About your English - nothing wrong with it.

About the museum, now it makes sense, I thought perhaps (although you say Bucarest) you lived in a small town in the country.

On the dog in straw shot, I meant to say better cropping not composition.

And, I like your signature too - "Want to see what I just saw?" Brilliant.

From the old times Romania was splitted in different regions with specific lifestyle habits, from the clothing and houses to the spoken language.
About the language, you can call it more like a dialect.

There, at the museum, you can find and see houses and pieces of clothing and decorations coming from all the regions. The houses are "original copies" made by wood craftsmen who inherit the ancient building tradition.

You can't find these anymore except places like this museum.

Really great series. i agree the first shot should be cropped a little but that shot made me smile, nice capture. The house shot is great with the lines that draw youin plus the colour and texture of the shot. As Ole says, you might want to try a little straigtening.

The other 2 are great. Very nice series.

Also your written English is just fine.
