Ok. this was my first attempt at manual focus. Plenty I could've done different but I thought to ask the SC community what they think I could've done different!

Please, let it rip!

I like many things about this: colors, the wobbly geometry of the walls, the stark rectangle of the door to name a few. Some things I'd experiment with include: shorter exposure and/or autofocus and/or tripod to eliminate the softness and a tighter crop on the door to focus the shot. Just one person's opinion, of course.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Martin. I actually have now started unpacking my tripod from my bag since I got this comment. And I already see a difference in the capture. If I get a chance, I will revisit this door in the coming days and give it another shot! thanks again.
Photography is a very subjective medium smile I would agree with most of what Martin said i.e a tighter crop on the door. Also a tripod and slight saturation to bring out a bit more richness of the colours. Crop out the roof completely so the image starts from the brick work (tip of d lamp) below the white line (very distracting!!)and a slight crop at the bottom. And sharpen to bring out more detail.
Abisola Fatokun: thanks for your comment. I'll take your advice and learn to rely more on my tripod! This was a hand-held manual focus attempt and my view through the diopter was obviously not optimal as any further attempt to sharpen the image only results in more distortion. I will give this shot another try in the coming days...

Very vibrant colors. Love the horizontal vertical patterns, especially the way bamboo/wood at the bottom corresponds with the vertical pattern of the brick. I think cropping it further would have cut off the two borders/frames here. I like the sot the way it is. But again as Martin said, its just one person's opinion...
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Richa! Thanks for dropping by.
You know maybe if you cropped off the top white bit it may have a look a tab bit stronger.
