This is a shot I got a couple of years ago on Queen Street west, here in downtown Toronto.
The Cameraon House Tavern has been a fixture in this city for many years, and at the time, its exterior had just been painted with a beautiful mural. On this particular day, the sky was overcast which further saturated the very vibrant colours. Luckily there were no cars in front of the building, so I parked across the street, waited until an appropriately dressed person entered the scene to give it a sense of scale, and got this shot.

This mural makes for an intriguing image, and your patience in waiting for just the right person to come along paid off.
I like this one very much!

Perfectly executed I would say.
Any particular reason for chopping of the feet (not that I really miss them)?

thx

sRGB clipping sucks and Adobe RGB is just as bad  Still no clue how to take decent pictures though, see afximages.com ;-(

I cropped along the bottom of the supergraphic on the wall, because below it was nothing but "dirty" sidewalk.
It was a tradeoff. I lost her feet, but to me, the image seems cleaner this way. The sign above reading "The Cameron House" was cropped out for the same reason.
