I get no respect

Challenge #1 in the Untitled series. Hosted by 2thdr.
Challenge has finished
With affectionate memories of Rodney Dangerfield. We all have pictures that nobody but we, the photographer (dare we say artist?), loves. Submit a picture that did not fare well in a DP Challenge, or otherwise. Perhaps its a photo that your wife, mom, friends, significant other, etc. really never thought much of, but that you, personally, really, really like. Explain in the title and continue, if necessary in the description, as to what you were trying to accomplish and why you like it this picture. If you enter a photograph, please make the effort to vote on most if not all entries. Try to see the picture from the photographer's point of view, and then make your own personal judgment. You are also also encouraged to leave courteous and constructive feedback on one or two pictures that strike you one way or another.

97th place
Placed 3rd last of 175+ in Window Shopping (2010-05). Yes, it is an empty store window, and does not promote consumerism. However, as a photograph, I thought the image tells a story and has a lot more merit than many of the snap-shot like photos that were entered in the challenge. I did not expect it to win, but I did expect it to place a lot better than at the bottom.
