Super vibrant and interesting. the only criticism would be the the viewers eyes are locked to ethan hawke's, and the brick and sign get lost;

Congrats on your PB. Although I missed voting on this challenge, this image would have scored quite well with me. The irony you captured and the complimentary processing choices you made work very well together. My only (very slight) nit is that the extreme upper right has a bit of a glare - probably from a street light. But... Nice job!

Thank you all so much for commenting! This is the most comments I've ever received and the highest placement too! I'm very happy :)

Just to respond to some comments:

notonline: Is this photo larger on screen as compared to other entries? It's 640 by ___ like most others, I imagine!

Erusan: Setup?? You think I tore down some street signs and placed them on Love Lane?? ahahaha, No, this was as I found it!

To all others: thanks very much for the praise and reactions and ideas. Much appreciated!!

I like this whimsy of this and the bright, crisp colors. The off-centered composition and how the colors really make the subjects pop give this shot a pleasing route for the eye to follow. 8

composition is great, would like to see a little less glare in the window if possible but still one of my favorites

One of those pictures which I like very much without being able to tell why. Last time I had that problem with a picture it ribboned. Maybe the same will happen to you. I give you a 10.

coincidence or a setup? nice picture, the sign is a bit too close to the border of the frame perhaps... a little bit oversaturated.

I'm not sure about the reflection in the lower part of the window. I wonder whether a polarising filter would have eliminated it.

This is the first shot I have seen that actually is artistic and meaningful as opposed to just photographing a sign. Good capture.

The window and posters are a distraction. The flare in the upper right detracts slightly from the image. The position of the "one way" sign is very good and certainly does remind me of a "down and out" person. I just find my eye leading to the face of Ethan Hawke, then to the "Do Not Enter" sign, then I just wander from there.

Very well composed and you did a fantastic job bringing out the bright colors.

Your title makes this picture work without a tighter crop. 9

interesting shot but really huge on my screen. The light source shinning on the LOVE LANE sign is a little to much. Other then that it has excellent contrast, color and clarity. The reflection from the store window is very distracting as well. Good luck in this challenge.
