yeah I know the doors aren't showing. Ever seen a movie theatre without cars in the parking lot?

Had to get the tripod up over the cars.

* Greetings from the Critique Club *

Hi Tony. Well, I'm going to have to agree with some of the comments you received as well as probably a lot of voters. It just looks a bit wierd without the bottom half of the theatre. I would of loved to have seen what was at pavement level. Damn cars!

But, would those cars of 'added' to the photo as well? Without knowing the place of your subject, it's hard for me to tell if you are located directly out the front of the theatre or across the street so I can't really say what the situation was. It's a shame because I love everything else about this photo.

The colours coming from the neon lights are captured really well and the focus looks good. I may of preferred a little less space at the top of the photo?

All up, I feel I'm looking at only half of the photo. As I mentioned, without knowing the situation it's hard for me to say how much better it would of looked or not. I'm sure you had your reasons for framing as you did.

You've had some fantastic scores so far this year. Well done. Keep it up and best of luck with future challenges.

Fun neon color, nicely centered, wonder what would look like without the entrance doors cut in half.

not to say this isn't cool now but i think in 50 years it will be super cool. Like today looking back at the facades of the old theaters. nice symmetry

the cropping doesn't seem right to me, it just ends abruptly at the bottom.
