      LOVE the split toning here. And the composition. And everything except the wires, but you even made those look as good as possible. Great shot.

      @charliestout: I don't know, I really liked the wires. I could have cloned or cropped them out, but I think they added something to the composition.

      Love the look of this photo. And for what it's worth, I think you were right in keeping the marquee wires in there...that's how it was made, that's how it was done "in the old days." They add more character to a sign that already has a ton.

      Where in the SF can this be found? Sort of looks familiar to me from when I lived there...

      I like the wires as well........I think cropping or cloning only works part of the time.....In this case it makes sense to keep them!

      This just zips me back to a time and a place. Wait, it's a time and place that was before I was born. lol :-)

      The Metro theatre on Union and Webster was operating until about two years ago, poor management, apathetic ownership, and downtown multiplexes conspired to darken one of San Francisco's most beautiful single screen neighborhood theatres. Ironically, this theatre was completely restored in the mid 1990's. There is talk of re-opening but forces are working against it. The interior walls have beautifully restored 20's era frescos that are illuminated by gracious antique lighting. The neon marque still lights the neighborhood.
