Greetings from the Critique Club!

The challenge was a free study so anything goes ... mission accomplished! ;) I like that you were trying to capture movement and stillness in the same frame. Unfortunately, there is a lot going on in this scene and there are so many distractions (i.e., lights, shapes, lines) that pull the eye from the artwork and the car. (Did you notice that the car looks like its kinda floating? Neat trick.) Eliminating some of the partial signs or extra shapes, especially along the edges of the frame, would help the viewer focus their attention.

More detail in the statue might have helped ground the image... although that is difficult to accomplish in a hand held situation. In some ways I think not having the car in the frame could have made the statue look alive instead of frozen. The slightly off center placement of the statue in the frame is nice as it gives the boys room to "run" ahead. All-in-all a fun click.
