great picture, when i see this picture two thoughts enter my head: "should i sit here" and "who's supposed to be sitting there"

it's like the feeling of being alone, of eating alone.

The reflection makes it, along with a classy tone. A wider lense would give a deeper view than the telephoto. best...jerry

Great light, composition and a very interesting reflection (off a menu even! wow). Your processing is perfect on this. Sort of captures the feel of an old diner. Wonderful!

Great choice to process in B & W and the filter treatment gives this a 50's diner "feel."
