*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A literal translation of the challenge theme that meets the challenge

It makes a change to be looking down on the street instead of from the normal street level looking up at the tall buildings so it makes for an interesting perspective. Your composition is good with the two blocks framing the street which is closed by the building at the top of the frame.

I'm sorry to say that the one thing that really lets it down is camera shake, there is softness throughout what ought to have been a very crisp and sharp image. I also think you missed a great opportunity to transform it into a much more dynamic image with your camera well supported and a slower shutter speed, probably about 1/2s. You could have made a feature of the motion of the traffic and people and emphasised how the city is always on the move against the permanently static buildings.

With a little more thought and attention to detail you would have improved the end result significantly, all part of the learning process, good luck with your future submissions, Sid

could use a bit of contrast, imo, but I like the composition and POV.

I like the tall buildings framing the shot. I wish it was a little crisper/clearer?
