"The watcher" is a very cool shot for the Street Photography challenge. Excellent choice shooting in black and white. Looking at the other two photos that you have posted I would agree with you and say this was the best choice for the challenge.

I really like the length that you were able to create with the architecture. I think it is really cool how the patio is breaking up the levels of the building. The lighting looks pretty good, I am sure you were not able to avoid the building shadow that is cast across the frame. I would be curious to see the shot if we were able to increase the contrast a little bit. Overall I think you did an excellent job, especially in finding a subject that is a little different from everyone else's. Nice work!

Probably not! But looks like it.
Really nice point of view.
Works in B&W but i would like to see the colour version. If it is Edinburgh i think the lower buildings are really nice colours.
Good luck
I love it.

I hope you don't get to many low votes because of no street. To me this is pretty classic and is well composed. 8

it looks like something from an italian film from 60s or 70s - very cool, from the Roman holidays probably
