Description
A local dive... The food was great and the proselytizing extreme. Is this the moral majority? Spider B&W Competition worthy?

I really like the story and humor of this photograph.

People are always interesting and the combination of religion and food is one too good to be true. It is my opinion that you have achieved an appropriate balance between the two people and the words.

Composition
& perspective
A compelling image and makes me feel like I'm privy to this conversation while being amazed at the religious message. The lower left corner of the cloth is "stabbing" the man in the head. Perfect for the message being conveyed on the cloth. He appears almost stunned. Nice.

I would try to lighten the face of the woman just a tad and the mans hand seems oddly dark. Perhaps it's due to the burned down window or for some other reason but it is distracting because it doesn't follow the rest of the tones you'd expect to see in an image like this. I'm being nit picky here.

Focus
In my opinion, perfect for the subject at hand.

How to improve your photo
1.
Watch out for tones that don't seem to fit in. Even if it's natural, make sure you at least look at the tonal range.
2.
This image is definitely competition worthy but remember competitions are often popularity contests and subject to the tastes of the judge(s) vs. the guidelines of the submission parameters.
3.
This photo is so strong that I have little to suggest to you to improve it. This is an image that I think would sell in a gallery as fine art.
