This was taken at the Polana Restaurant, in Kalk Bay ("chalk bay") in Cape Town, right next to the Kalk Bay Harbor.
The Polana is a fantastic Portuguese restaurant, and it is situated on rocks right next to the sea. It has big windows which they open if the weather is nice, and they have big couches which you can sit on and relax, chat with friends, have drinks or just stare at the sea.
It was just about to rain, so the sky was very dramatic and the atmosphere quite heavy.
I put my camera on the table, set the self-timer, and the rest just happened....

I like your shot henry. There a lot of content in it (maybe even too much). I like the sky, the see and the silhuettes.
U have a WS for you.

Very dramatic sky indeed and nice daily life scene! Great colors also. I also agree with the theatre feeling because of the columns and the scene in front of the "balcony".
You could try to darken the silhouettes until they're black. I f think it would work fine also.
About the portuguese restaurant... Well we have fame for our gastronomy... Not the type of fame as the french with their nouvelle cuisine that is most like art. A real traditional cuisine... Especially sea food.
