Great color and I like the way the utility lines lead my eye into the image. I can see where you were headed with this one, but I don't really get the feeling that this one met the spirit if the challenge. While I can clearly see that this is just off the street, and that I'd obviously see this scene while on the street, I think I'd like to see more of what is happening ON the street rather than just above it. I also think that your crop is just a bit awkward. Chopping off the buildings above the ground make this one seem more of an accidental snapshot rather than an intentionally composed image. If you'd shifted the angle of the camera down a bit and included the bases of the buildings, I think that this one would have been a good deal stronger, even if the buildings and street remained in complete silhouette.

Wish it was cropped differently, without the buildings in the bottom frame, but then you would loose the beautiful colors of the sunset. Overall a beautiful sunset.

Although this doesn't fit the typical "street challenge" ideal, I think it is an interesting interpretation. Makes me think about all the birds we see every day and don't even think about.
