I do like the colors and the framing of the storefront and the sky. I was not being flippant when I wrote the last comment. That is exactly what I thought you where trying to suggest. Maybe I ahve have been dieting too long. :) I certainly agree with your criticism and I will try to be more helpful from now on.
Actually, your comment was funny and not too far off. If you had followed it with, "No, seriously..." and what you said above, I would have marked is as helpful (and wouldn't have called you out in public--sorry about that--I was extremely sleep deprived at that point).
My intention was kind of a humorous elevation of the mundane kind of choices one faces at a Chinese buffet to the major life choices we make (the expanse of celestial clouds gave me that notion). I originally titled it, "Life is a buffet, choose wisely" but in my perverse way I felt that was too direct. I have an almost pathological aversion to insulting the viewer's intelligence with leading titles. Obviously, the double-meaning was too obscure and needed the clarity of a different title.
Thanks for the follow-up!
