*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting street scene that is assumed to meet the challenge.

I always take in the title to hopefully gain more insight of the photographers intention and motivation for creating the image in the first place, so I see you want to emphasise the ladies movement within the frame. Towards that end her extreme cropping adds a huge element of intrigue, is the lady as beautiful as we think and hope she is? What is her role in relation to the others? There is movement in her leg which adds weight to the title.

Looking at the lads attention the lady has gained, the three seem quite mesmerised by her but alas, not the bloke on the left who is absorbed in his phone, another alternative title may be 'win some, lose some' ? I quite like your extreme cropping particularly of the lady and even to a lesser extent the bloke on the right but because the cropping is so critical I don't like the whatever it is, either a bag or a block, in the foreground next to the ladies foot. In some respects I think another possibility with this shot would be a second later when the first bloke is covered by her and just the three looking at her longingly, that would probably have had more impact. I do like your low and seemingly inconspicuous viewpoint.

Sorry you didn't receive any comments during the challenge, I hope this makes up for it, Sid
