This is my favourite type of shooting/processing and yet when it comes up as a challenge I can't make an image I'm happy with. Frustrating! That said, the more I look at this pic, it's beginning to grow on me. The leading lines, the interaction between the people, the clutter, the face in the background. Almost certainly means it'll bomb in voting. Prediction: 5.3

Shot outside a group of antique shops on a busy street in Guildford. RAW file taken to ACDsee Pro, small straighten and crop, converted to B&W, with minor adjustments to contrast and clarity. Resized, added border, sharpened, saved as JPEG.

Good but the left side is too bright drawing my eye away from the action.

Nice and natural - I like the teensy photobomb of the face by the post!
