Greetings from the Critique Club!

A very interesting and reflective with tons of potential. There is a lot going on here but it doesn't feel cluttered, it feels very crisp and clean. The silhouettes work well here as they are almost more revealing than seeing the faces of the people. The rectangles give a nice flow to the shot and continuity. The blurred cyclist is a little bit too centred, about another second later and she's be farther to the right, helping balance the human figures already on the left. However at least she has lots of room to bike into :-)

I wouldn't have minded seeing this from either an elevated or lowered POV. To me those rectangles are almost screaming to be shot from ground level (or as close as you can get). but that's just me. Still, don't be afraid to experiment. Louie (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' lobrin) used some form of elevated walkway to advantage to shoot down at his subject in Memory Lane, which added greatly to the shot; the reverse, in this situation, could make a much more dynamic image. Consider reshooting if feasible, for fun and the experience.

Feel free to PM me,

I thought this would have done better. Very well composed and you can feel the urban energy.
