1. The composition is too symmetrical; the eye is led in several directions at once
2. The concrete sill has lumps at the bottom
3. The brick courses aren't straight
4. The red looks unnatural
5. There's too much space round the subject
6. Tonally, it's rather flat

But the net curtains are nice.

I didn't do the bricklaying, and he who did is probably long gone by now.
But I agree that geranium red is a rather unnatural-looking shade of red.

The window boxes have been repainted green now.
Not Tring Green, but British Racing Green.

Now replaced with plastic, in breach of conservation area regulations.
