Seems that you and Hugo maybe on to a similar theme - of waiting outside shops for the girls to come out :-)

You've made of this photo a painting. Lovely light and reflection.
Love the bright incongruity of the yellow with the dark rich subtle tones.

great eye to pick out this composition! the blurry reflections are nicely offset against the person walking at the top and i like the "liquid" quality of this scene...
