This has alot of repeating compositional themes (the stride and the inner ear outline being 1 interesting example). First glance, I hate it, but the more i look, the more it works for me. I like to think my subconscious saw them all the instant i took the pic...but perhaps it's just nature working to put any scene in order. Though without a worthwhile message it is rather irrelavant. Anyway the author of the last photo book I read would be proud, but he was pretty far out there, so I'm sure my conscious will be seeing more low scores very soon.

Great shot, underated. How long did you wait for someone to put that contrasting grafitti on the wall, whilst the guy in the blue shirt walked up and down?

I like how the blue in his shirt is similar to the blue of the wall....how long did you wait for someone with a blue shirt? :-)

Interesting how the graffiti contrasts with the yellow and how that is repeated with the real person. 8

I like the graphic urban sensibility of this shot. The movement of the guy walking down the street is caught mid stride. Definitely high contrast.

What a great photo. I love the art on the wall and the candid pic. The composition is perfect as is the photo itself but IMHO, the blue on the wall takes just a bit away from the impact of the blue shirt of the man... If either things had been red maybe, it would seem even higher contrast? well done!!

I like it. A great use of color contrast (it's my highest rated color picture). The composition is good as well. Too bad that AC unit is stuck there. 9

His arms are glowing yellow due to you upping the levels, but still a great shot.

Great shot - love the colours. It's a shame about the shadow in the top-right - it's a bit of a distraction, but not too much of a problem. 6

This is good...I like the fact that the blue of the artwork is echoed by the man's shirt.
