That's a nice point of view and you have included just the right amount of sidewalk and person to make this complete. By far one of the better ones in this challenge.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

It's great that you are trying a different angle for your shot, but being different is not enough. I don't think you quite achieved the effect you were looking for. I don't get a sense of rushing from this. The legs look oddly static. I'm not sure why, but I have some guesses. For one, there's a comfortable space between camera and pedestrians, a comfortable stretch of ground. A little uncomfortable closeness could create a disoriented sense of being rushed, or of people rushing past. Another possibility is to slow the shutter speed down so we get some motion blur. And then there's always the method of taking hundreds of photos until you find one with enough people who are taking long strides, who seem to be leaning precariously forward on their way.

I notice some complained about the tilt. I think it's my reading-left-to-right bias, but if this were tilted down to the right instead of down to the left, it would convey rushing to me. Also, most of the motion here seems to be going "up" instead of down. If you're going to tilt, most of the motion should be going down.

Be advised, I'm not telling you how to score higher. I'm telling you how to achieve the effect you desired. The latter is what it's all about. If you want to score higher, find a pretty woman, put a lot of makeup on her, shine a strong light on her face (with a reflector to get rid of shadows), put her on the thirds and blur the background.

I donít have much knowledge on street photography but my thoughts on you shot are as follows: This is a very different photo as it shows the hustle and bustle of a faces crowd - something about it attracts me to look at it. 10

would have loved this more with maybe a long exposure to emphasis the rushing part, it wouldn't have to be very long, just enough to catch motion like the foot on the left.

Nice tones and subject, angle is a little bothersome but not too bad.

Great angle on your shot. Really like your idea, very difficult capture with all the movement. Also really like your composition here. Nice work.
