In addition to being an awsome picture in itself, I think this really works here. I did use this technique for a webillustration I (something like; where is your place? to the students).
++1 on the chairs!

Thanks!

I agree with some of the others.  I think it's most tasteful when done with a minimalist approach... :)

Here I think I could have gone just a tad more with the red on the roof but I didn't want to lose the old, nostalgic feeling I was trying to achieve.  The flag I think I'm okay with, maybe a tad more there too...

I like this picture alot! I think this technique is a bit either or... I agree on the old feel, but a bit stronger so people are not guessing.

Some great shots on this thread.   I'm a big fan of the more subtle ones.  In particular, the guy with the cigar, the jets & the role of film are all excellent.

Here's one of my own favourites.

Not so much b&w with isolated colour, but a punch to the red to make it really stand out in the rest of the colour.

I like this, and it fits well with the street photography style
