To be honest I try to not read titles when voting, and apparently when I viewed this image I was very successful in that and completely missed it. Now that I see the title it does make a bit more sense. I think part of why the image didn't convey that is because in the reflection her eyes almost look closed, or that she's looking at the ad. The ad appears to be an important part of the image, so I tried to make a connection between the ad and the model. I think the same pose without anything in the window may have worked better, or a window where the object in the window wasn't as obvious.

I didn't vote, btw.

I would have expected a little higher score for this. I like that you balance this out with the ad of the woman. Interesting contrast.

She sure is taking a long time to read that sign. I think it's a good idea and pretty well executed, but would have had something more interesting in the window for her to be pining for.

Nicely done. The balance to this photo is really what makes it good.
