    With the following photos I really wanted to assault the eye. The subject is the "mess" and I thought that making it messier might work. The first isn't as sharp as it should be, in my opinion, but it was taken on the fly. It works for me, but I'm definitely bias (of course). Thought I see what others think of these.

    I think, given the subject matter, the processing works. I might even go a step further and try a gritty sharpening method (avoiding halos as best you can) but I find that images that I really want to punch, high-pass sharpening pushed a bit farther than what you would normally might make these stand out even more (it might not, too :) ).

    You may have pushed the reds a bit too far and they've blown. It's hard to tell if that's the case or if the graffiti in some places is just that solid if a red color.

    Nice work.
