cool photo, i like this alot.
Maybe the girl (even though she's very lovely) should be cropped from the frame?
I can't decide if she adds or takes from the photo.

Cropping the girl crops the sign, so I think you live with it. Still nice. I bet axl has the other version.

Too bad the guy was not looking at the girl. That would have been perfect!

Hey Peter - how do you come up with these droll, ironic street shots? Just great!

Good one Peter.
The pose from the attendant is perfect. The composition is perfect as is, but the girl running distracts attention from the subject. If she were cropped though, it would force a less-balanced image. If there were more room to the left of the girl, I'd add that in whilst cropping off some of the empty space to the right of the frame.

the girl in the frame is the whole point for me...

sorry but have to let you down on this one... I never thought of cropping her out of the frame, so this is the only version I have...

thanks Ash,

I see what you are saying, there was teeny weeny tiny bit of space to the girl's left but had to crop it off when straightening the image (my biggest problem is that rarely I take shot that is really level ). And cropping her out would take away the point (for me) of the image regardless of the composition.

Excellent shot. Too bad the guy isn't looking at the young lady as he is missing "a first class view." The shot appears to be a wee bit unlevel (I do this a lot). Either that, or my monitor is crooked.

you are right.
It's the shot... I know about it but rotating it any more will crop too much of the girl off
