I wish I snapped this a second before or after, when the guy in the middle was straight up. Talk about "decisive moment" missed! Why didn't I see this right away?! Oh well, too late now. Actually, him bending down like this makes a nice symmetry breaking in the shot, so perhaps it's not so bad after all...

I didn't get a chance to even look at this challenge - GREAT shot. And I do like the guy bending down for the reason you noted.

I love this! For me, the guy bending over makes it, it's like he's been waiting so long that he's fallen asleep and is resting his head on the guy in front of him! :) Top stuff!

Greetings from the Critique Club

Fit: This meets the challenge well but not perfectly. You hit the nail on the head with the guy bending down. He does imply motion which some may have slightly DNMC'd you for. Overall the image fits.

Composition: Nicely composed with two strong lines leading us to the front of the queue. First, the line of people, second the slight diagonal formed by the rooftops. Nice.

Technical: I like the almost silhouette feel to this and the light grey of the buildings. I don't know what you meant to do though. I do feel that the people need to have more or less detail.

Feel: Nicely shows the waiting of people in a queue. A great 1930's feel to the city behind the people. Just lacking something emotional to pull us in.

PM me if you have any queries.

yeah, I think the guy bending down works. I'd like to see it both ways so I can decide. ;)
