An OK finish, should have ended higher up than this. I assume that you got hurt partially by the 'not a street' gang. Very nice presentation of the rain we've had tons of.

Great shot, like the leading lines and the hidden woman, my only suggestion would be that you need to brighten this a tad and bump up the contrast just a bit.

Should have rotated it slightly to the left. There is a slight tilt to everything

I loved the photo, but think the photo could have more meaning if title should reflect something about the woman in the photo.

Nice capture - Nice tones but the awkward angle is a little distracting

Lovely architecture and the person half appearing (and I am guessing from the pose on a mobile phone) gives it great context. Super continuation of the pathway in the open space beyong the arches. Good B&W conversion although to me the horizontal seems slightly off on the shot which is a tad distracting. This could well be the way the arches/pathway are shaped (and if it is I apologise) but if you look at the rear most arch it looks somewhat askew

You have made some very interesting compositional decisions here. I do not know if they work for me but I appreciate them nonetheless.
