It's always fascinating to see different approaches to a reference photo. Helen has included the pigeon and boards whereas I have left the space 'open'. Perhaps I could have relieved the dark rectangle with slightly lighter tones to indicate that there might be something in the room behind the opening.
Even the photo chosen involves some selection. At some stage there was a second pigeon sitting on top of the leaning shutter.
