Wow! Fantastic stuff, Didn't expect this to get the blue with a sub-7 score and such stiff competition. Thank you all very much for the great comments and votes, it seemed like fate that my favourite style would appear in a challenge the week I travelled to the birthplace of the genre. I had a couple of choices for this week which I will post up here soon!

The choices in camera settings and the effect of the sharpening give this a nice edge that works very nicely with the subject and existing lighting.
The scene is classic, even to the title of the store, and the people add quite a diversity of interesting little side shows to the overall enjoyment of viewing the image.
Congrats on the new "Blue".
