Starting to lose count of how many times I have seen this! It's a great subject, though. My employer handed out a calendar this year that included a shot of this, I could not believe how oversharpened with visible sharpening halos their calendar shot was.

This isn't a bad shot, but just too familiar. I understand the problem with not having interesting subjects on your doorstep, but in my opinion the subject has been milked enough. Going to have to vote this down. I try to be consistent regarding the matter.
