#1 pretty much SOOC, searching for the feeling - but not there (and, maybe never will be!)

Have a go at it!

Or, maybe some different re-touching and Color Efex twiddling to express some current fad:

I love this sort of photo in a morbid way because I can find all sorts of faults that I'd almost certainly fail to avoid if I took the photo.

I think it needed a different perspective or viewpoint. Perhaps more from the side (and even down lower) in a way that made the pepsi fridges or the parking meters or the bench more prominent. You probably saw all of these things before taking the photo but the photo is relatively bland and doesn't do anything for me (or you). It doesn't help that the image is so small that I cannot read any most of the text because text in a photo usually wants to be read.

It might also benefit from a wider angle or a shallower DOF too.

Is it something you can re-shoot ? Doing so might be a very good learning exercise.

Thanks Alan for you thoughts,

Do not know when I'll get back there, building embedded with other structures...straight on vanilla shot.

Hope you don't mind me playing with the composition, yielding something totally different. I love the cartoonish cones drawn on the front windows, as well as the painted palm tree off to the right. If you go back to re-shoot, you might consider some of the "macro" possibilities, as ALAN321 suggested.
Out of curiosity, what's the name of the ice cream stand? Usually, with stands like this, it's emblazoned on the front.

I don't think there's much here. I think maybe some black and white, because of the different tones in the image, can give it some character.

For me, there's more here than might meet the eye on first review. The colors pop and play a pivotal role in the photo. It's a quiet photo that speaks to me about the seductive commercialization of our society.
For inspiration, you might want to search out the color documentary photography of Stephen Shore (current show at MOMA NYC), Joel Sternfeld, William Eggleston, William Christenberry, etc.

I like that - thanks! IT had a 'feel' for me, much as you describe - conveying that is the issue, as always

Name? Do not recall - very, very southernmost tip to Tybee Island, so hardly on the beaten path. Would like to get back at some point, likely not until fall or spring.

Thanks again,

Bob

Thank you for your thoughts, must revisit with B&W in mind.
