Last summer's Street Festival closed off major Toronto streets filling the normally car packed roads with people.
This shot was taken candidly in front of one of Toronto's larger strip clubs.
The lady seems to be contemplating what it means to be beautiful.
Post-pro: convert to b/w, levels adjustment, curves.
This was taken on the same day as the pic below:

Gigant faces on posters can give funny effects when mixed with people, there is a theme on that. The picture doesn´t have much effect on me other than that as a european I am a bit curious about what "Totally nude european style" means. Are there more than one way to be naked?? Or if the meaning is "european style female" I think you should consider the genetics of most North Americans.....

I like this picture a lot. You captured an interesting blending of elements. In some countries it is even prohibited to display explicit commercials like this, so the ethical aspect perfectly fits TE's spirit. Very effective composed too, with the pillars with text at the sides, and the people that fill 1/3th of the frame. Great job Alex!
