I would like to say this is a traffic stopper - but where are the cars?

@Curly: The cars are quietly parked - their drivers are all in dreamland...

WOW thats dedication to be out there at that time, but the end result is worth it, I like Aluns comment and concur a delightfully cheeky shot, good thing there wasnt much traffic about she would be quite a distraction to the drivers :)

I hope she finds those cute pajamas! :)) Great shot! Beautiful model

Yonatan from Bronx, United States

Great shot! The location, composition, exposure control are excellent and the beautiful model is posed wonderfully! I really like your placement of the model in the dead center of the street. After my eyes are finished observing the main subject they then want to wander down the street, but of course they come back in contact with the main subject as she obscures the rest of the street.

Nicely done. I used to live just nearby. Powell/Pine. Would have liked the composition to be not so centered, but still, original and nice.
