Lol, thank you! I did not know that, but obviously this guy did not either because that’s what he yelled to his buddy across the street:)

I think this would have been a terrific photo without the guy in it.  Superb colors and framing, and excellent subject matter (varying notions of consumerism). There also is excellent tension between the antique shop and the car.  

The guy kind of ruins it for me, unfortunately.

Thanks, Joel. To me, there is something about the kid that doesn’t quite fit the photo, though he was intended to be the main subject. I’ve been struggling with weather this disconnect works or not, so you’ve helped me a great deal with that comment. Thanks again!

I actually think that the kid’s pose complements the curves of the car.  There’s also a symmetry between the wheel of the car and his face.  The problem is that he just doesn’t have the right look to go with the car. A beautiful woman or good looking gentleman would work better than a gormless high school drop-out, but then I guess we don’t always get to choose our models in street photography.

I think it’s well framed, a sort of triangular red pattern, overlaying an equilateral yellow one (the figurine in the window). The mans shoe placed nicely up against the yellow curb. His blue shirt complimenting the red/yellow. Grey or white neutral elements otherwise. The iconography if the sports car, Coca Cola. Youth and so on.
