I think this is a lovely image, I appreciate how you have wanted for the dynamic element to appear (at least I hope you did! I like to think so). You had a hard job to decide on the rotation of the image with the horizontal slope and the many verticals and other horizontals - and even the distance between the top of the writing and the top of your frame.

There are a few things I might have done differently, I offer them here not by way of a critique (it's your image), but by way of sharing my own perspective and way of seeing.

I'd have seen if the wall, in heavy highlight, could have been recovered - there are many tools that will do this; I'd have been unable to resist a monochrome image - although I do appreciate that I have been culturally conditioned to expect that with certain street work. I go a bit vignette made too!!

My preferences aside, it's a really engaging image - full of message and life. I always have a soft spot for a bit of blur, so I'm really pleased you chose to include that element.

A well timed shot, but I wonder if any detail could have been had in the highlights?

Keep getting drawn back to all the contradictions in this picture: Triumph.....of a seemingly derelict church; the cyclist ignoring it; the irony of the number looking like a date,....maybe it will have triumphed by 2030 - I suspect not! One of my favourites.
