Great photojournalism shot . Cant wait to read the story on this one.

With the sky as bland as it was on this day, I think I'd like to see this one from a different point of view. Perhaps shifting your position over to the right, using a shallow depth of field with the buildings as your background would have made this one a bit less busy. I'm also interested to know the story behind this one, so it definitely grabs my interest.

The thing that I find most intersting about this is the Clint Corbin for Mayor sign amidst all the chaos.

Nice shot, good action, dont realy need the trucks on the other side of the street, perhaps reframing it from the middle of the road would have helped.

nice find. doesn't speak to me like i would expect a "street" image to, but it is a good photojournalistic approach to an interesting scene

In my opinion, the picture would had more punch or impact if it would have been cropped from under the first set of lights, to the beginning of the truck and under the Clint Cobbin sign...

If it were me, I'd crop out part of the area on the right with the moving trucks, and concentrate on the guys in the street. You definitely have the idea.

I like ths picture. Classic Street Photography. The onlt thing that would make it better would be to have the people in the picture closer.
