I had really planned to make this one B&W as street photography should be, but I kind of like the result like this.

Love the movement of this in terms of the almost "fish eye" effect (must be the curved building and the slightly angled camera). the partial desat is also intriguing (used it in my shot and it's being met with a general disdain). Your use of the desat red on the central figure really brings him out as your main character and the eye wants to follow him up the road as if he were actually moving. I like the way that as my eye moves off him up the road it is arrested by the old man and his walking stick and the mental wondering continues.

I'm sorry, this is a very static image for me. That centred subject and the

interesting composition. unfortunately having to be so wide to get it all in, you've lost alot of the details that would help connect me better to the image

The main subject (red hoodded one) would have had more impact at 1/3 on the left had side of the presentation...

There is no center point on the picture. I can't find a specific main subject. Peoples are walking around but I can't tell if you wanted to focus on the guy with a red jacket or on the guy crossing the street or on the bicycle leaving the frame or anything else. 4

I really like how busy your shot is. It has so much going on and leads your eyes all over the place. I love that about shots, also really like the desaturated look and you composition is very nice.
