This should have been titled Greasy Spoon (but I don't think fast enough). n. Slang: a small, inexpensive, often unsanitary restaurant.

So - I promise never to do this again. While I really like this image for the color and the feel, I knew it would bomb in free study. I should have entered it in the camera movement challenge for which it was taken.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: great scene, full of life - I like the full on colour too.

Critical stuff: Though this may have worked for the moving camera challenge, where that was the brief, here (in a FS where you have more choice) I think such a technique needs to be justifiable because that was the right way to take the shot. On balance, I think the technique hurts the image more than it helps it. It's a good scene - you could have made it work without dressing it up in technique.

Overall: This is an image that frustrates me more than it delights me. Apologies.

I can only assume you were going for this look but it is painful to look at, to clarify..it hurts my eyes to look at the picture..perhaps due to the brightness and/or lack of focus.

the colors are interesting , but I am not sure the movement here really adds to the shot. 5

I think I understand, but it doesn't quite work for me.
