Took this candid street image on the morning of the Street Photography deadline...thought it might fit here. They were waiting for the light to change and were heading to work or university. I used the 10mm super wide to take in the scene.

Basic editing including sharpen and duotone, levels etc

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Composition: You seem to have broken all the rules in this one (slanted horizon, major elemented centered) but it doesn't hurt the image this time. The curved nature of the intersections lets the horizon be on an angle and it helps guide me from the right to the left. I do find the couple are a little burried in all the people in that I find myself being drawn to the others to see what they are all up to.

Technical: The B&W conversion is good but the bright patch above the buildings is very distracting. A tighter crop removing some top and left may have been worth a try. The border works well.

Feelings: I find this sort of photography hard to like but given the style this is a nice shot that shows good emotion.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions

This is a cool shot. It seems like they're wrapped up in each other while everyone else is alone.
