Look at the window

I thought the glow from the sun made it look deceptively warm, so I used the polygon select tool the window area without the foreground objects, then reduced the saturation -63%. This has the effect of making everything grayish and colder, but it’s not too obvious because the only real color out there was the yellow glow. Maybe it’s too subtle and I should have pasted in an abominable snowman instead, but I kinda like the contrast. Below is the end result:
