Guy on the right could've been cropped out.

Interesting idea. I would have cropped differently to either include or exclude the guy on the right.

It would be interesting picture if you would do more nicer cropping.

I love this picture, challenge or no challenge this picture is a great urban setting. I'm giving point on this. As for the challenge, I think it's a bit far fetched. Members of DPC are not ready for such a long try. 7

I love the idea....you thought outside the box and its shown by your title....However....This picture has a "snapshot" feel. I bet people are hiting on it pretty hard...so lemme be one of the few people that tries to explain whats going on in my head instead of just voting.

Copositionally, not terrible. The two mirrors add a nice semetric feel to your photo. With a tighter crop job (eliminating the man on the right and the light blue strip on the far left) this would have been a little more visually solid. I know it was basic editing, so you couldnt get rid of the blue phone sign. I find that distracting too. The bucket could probably go too!

Lighting and feel- I love it. It feels like happy hour when I view this image. Sun is heading down, ready to party, or sulk at the bar. The slight light on the windows is very nice too...adds a warm tone to the image.

All that being said...I think a lot of people want to really be impacted by the pain element of the photo. Your photo is a little more out-of-the-box....which is good, but probably wont score high in the challenge. I wish you the best of luck and regardless of this challenge, I do like the image. Keep up the good work! :))
