I missed this somehow. So nice! Love the filigree throughout and the pov is really very interesting.

I like the angle and an interesting idea. What would have made the shot for me would have been one single person coming up the stair looking at the camera. It's just too many backs for me, I know that was part of the idea. :) Exposure is nice. This is more of the traditional black and white than the high contrast stuff you usually see which I like. A well taken shot. Congrats!

I gave this a 7 and it would have been higher in a less stellar challenge. I love this angle on things, the blatantly voyeuristic angle, as your title suggests. But we're the voyeur of the voyeurs in this case, aren't we? Isn't it interesting how much the shadows add to this? They really make the shot.

This was in my top ten. Very nicely seen, love the angle, the light, the processing. Makes you wonder what they're all waiting for, or if they're just enjoying the day. Very well done.

I like the angle on this shot, great POV, B&W conversion could use a little work though. I like the B&W to be a high contrast between tonal ranges. good effort though,

Good composition but it lacks of contrast. The whites are dull and the blacks ain't completely black. You shouls boost the contrast a little more next time. 5

I like this shot and the angle it has been taken from. I gather they are all waiting for the lights to change. I feel like I'm waiting with them. Great Shot. 9

nice shadows...I'd like to know if you placed everyone or if this was a coincidence. The composition is great.
