Beautiful photo. This would have been one of my highest scorers.

I think that this was the best shot in the challenge. For all the people that said it doesn't meet the challenge requirements: the subject of the photo is "topless". Its a building that holds a bunch of topless things. I think it works fine but everybody that didn't is just taking things too literal and wants to see a snapshot with the top of something cut off. I love the cool tones too.

ahhh, took me a minute there. I like the desolation type feeling in this shot.

Implied topless-ness...works for me...very nice.

This is more "bottomless" to me...

Well, there are not any topless people visible! I like the implication, though. Nice street shot. I like the way the lighting works.

where's the topless image?

hmm, i am trying hard to see this here, I really don't understand the concept or what exactly is topless. its a fine image as it is, but just doesn't fit strong enough for me.

very good picture, but don't see "topless" here

A tighter crop would have been better, although this conveys "with no people" even better. It is only hard to see the 'erotic dancing' so quick voters may not get it...

doesnt meet the challenge?? or maybe im just not getting it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

lol I didn't get it at first, till I read the rest of the sign. It's not very clear at that resolution.

Having said that, it's a nice spin on the challenge, nicley composed, with a great moody atmosphere.

What is topless here? Looks like it would have been better in Duotones.

nice urban capture, could be used as a stock image. bit of a stretch with the theme but 7 nonetheless

Ah, genius! Took me a second, but what a refreshingly creative, original take on the challenge. I do like the shot, but I'm feeling like the composition seems a little uncomfortable. The space at the left of the frame doesn't seem to really contribute anything to the image, I'm wondering if a little tighter framing, losing some of that area could make the photo stronger? The little building with the light and grafitti at right fits in fine I think. Cutting out the left area would also put the main subject out of the center, which, although I think it does work here centered, might work even better offset. Ok, I held some paper up, cropping on the left right up to about the telephone pole, and the bottom up a little to before the white line, and I would definitily say it looks stronger to me :-) But, like I said, great idea, I like it very much, oh, and that towncar in front really makes the shot complete!

Great take on the theme. Nice monochrome conversion. A bit central, but that's not realy disturbing. Like it (7)
