Hi folks... Been a while since I tried my hand at these challenges. I found this one surprisingly tricky... ended up going for a sort-of-Lomo, lo-fi film look, with a shoot-from-the-hip tilt, crop to 4x3 and bringing attention to the lion statue with a zoom blur...

What a great street scene. So many wonderful entries so far. So many, that I didn't think I could do any better.
That Lion is the BEST! I wish I had one for my yard. So instead of working on the picture, I thought I'd do a little research to see where he came from. I think I found my answer - it was really no surprise, as everyone knows where everything in Sweden comes from... I'll share a screen-shot of what I found:

(and yes, I realize there may be a special place in hell for me for this... )

Here's my 2 efforts, the first, I just added filters from On1 Effects. The second, I added a sky, straightened it up and added a surreal dynamic filter.

Thank you all for nice submissions! Difficult to choose between all those good postprocessings.
Sorry I won't comment all, I'll present my top 3

Third place: BigMackCam. That motion/focus blur and colors makes it a good winter street photo!
Second: astonm. I love this idea a lot, makes me wonder how to get that very heavy Lion home in my car in those IKEA flat packs, or maybe is "Lejon" filled with light spongy material under that stone surface?

And the Winner: imaspy!! Very good handling of the light and colors, and not too much clarity. It looks very much alike that winter morning with the backlight along the street when this was shot.
