Hi! Here’s a comment from the Critique Club.

First Impression:
Eyes drawn to the large “50”, then up to the blue “Sales”, over to the torso and then down to the railing. Looks out of focus!

Cropping may have been too tight. Sign dominated the frame. More of the “store front” may have added interest.
Railing was distracting. Dark clothes created a hole on the left side.

This may have been a comfort for you, but I don’t know how many people would have connected. People connecting with the picture would be more inclined to vote higher.

Your choice of 1600 ISO made your picture grainy, giving it the out of focus look. Nothing was sharp. Given your shutter speed of 400, you had enough light to drop the ISO down to the 200 range.

Don’t know what software you used, but you could have increased your file size. You should take advantage of the 640 dimension. Your file was 596 x 427.

This was only your second entry, keep your camera handy, and take lots more pictures! Enjoy!!!

Please take this a constructive! This photo doesn't really stand on its own. There is no clear subject, it could be the sign, the red bar, or the jeans. If shopping is your comfort, maybe a shot of someone sitting on a mall bench surrounded by bags of items they bought.

just putting "comfort" in the title is not enough; poor light and composition
