So, here are the results and my analyse (I hope not to be rude to anybody Embarassed , that's not my intention).

Snodge made a square cropped version without too much cleaning and letting the photographs shadows.
Treatment is good. But I find composition average.

Nurkov (Marcin) made much cleaning and made it very well. Maybe too much and it makes quite empty on the door's sides.
I like the colours very much in the first one.
The very contrasty B&W second version is also interesting. Instead of feeling Inside a hall, we feel we're outside.
The last B&W is well treated but has less "personality".
I regret the lines alignments haven't been treated.

Edgar's first proposal is great. I like the very graphic look of the door and cycles.
The lines could have been more treated to be more horizontal and vertical, parallel to the frame's edges.

Finaly, Jan's version.
The picture has been slightly rotated.
Cleaning is very well done and letting the chairs on the left fills more the picture.
Frame has been cropped so that the picture looks much more balanced.

So, after a lot of thinking, I choose Jan's version as winner of this week's contest.
Congrats Jan, and please post a new contest. Very Happy

Thank you all for your participation. Wink

Thanks for your kind words, I'm glad that my clonning skills were appriciated Wink
Really like your comments and I think that this could be a way to go and all judging people should do that in a future, including me Smile

I had some difficulties to find the bike... Laughing
and it shows this picture has potential for exposition. Wink

Here is my B&W proposal.
DxOViewpoint2 used for changing perspective.
DPP for cloning.
Snapseed for B&W treatment.

I like it. Feels real. Very Happy

Thank you Martin for the precision.

Well it wasn't that easy for me..

1. Oliviers attempt was close to what I did here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tedat/15376302034/
2. I liked nurkovs dark b&w version..
3. then there was Ed with this neon glowy picture and I was close to choose this one

but the "play" from tromboads finaly did it for me.. it's just fun (even it's not a indian Wink ) and also got the highest rating

Congrats tromboads! Very Happy

Please post a new contest.

Oh goodness what have you all done, I feel honored to accept my award here on page one hundred and thirty. Laughing

I've seen lots of recent previous images with a great deal of form, how to you feel about having to choose which form to end with? Twisted Evil This should afford you a bit of room to create an image maybe? or is this too crazy? I want to see how one decides texture. Because I love texture Razz. and line.. line and texture oh baby!
