Wow! I got a ribbon! Thank you all so much for many, many great comments! :)

This door is on the bingo hall across the street. I knew I would use it for a photo someday! We had fun with this shot. Lots of waves and horns honking!

I really like how you show a side of clowns we don't normally see. Good picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 01:22:14 PM
i think the colours look a bit odd.. makes it look almost fake. but nice photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2008 06:05:11 PM

Is it a HDR picture? Colors and contrast look like HDR
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 03:07:08 PM
Excellent shot, love the contrast between the clown suit and the brickwork.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 01:30:18 PM

Cool shot. You so lucky to have a clown suit lying around. Nice composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 02:19:34 PM
Modern day clown, eh? Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 01:24:04 PM
Obviously great contrast of colours and textures and I think I like the processing. It gives it a painted feel and makes the clown almost cartoony to me. Lovely image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:43:20 AM
OK, now that's funny! Great pose and wonderfully trashy background with the graffiti and rust spots on the door.

this is a very cool shot - great subject and also nice composition. the post-processing is also interesting, gives it almost a comic book look. one of my faves so far. 9
