Love the strong colors in this shot. The sail 's shadow is unexpected and blends in well with the car and three folks walking. Hmm, three windows per level, three modes of transport, three cars, three sets of barred doors...Threes all over! I'd like to see the same building later in the day with some different sunlight color, but this is still a really well composed shot. 10

I love this shot. It really speaks to me. The people in the shot are great. the trash great too. I wish the car was not in t he photo. It is a bit distracting.
Good Job

You might have cropped out the bottom third of the image. The trash and graffiti take away from an otherwise excellent find. Is that a pumpkin in the center window? Checking calendar... ;-)

It's too bad about that shadow! They're very fun looking buildings, just sadly overshadowed.

Its a shame about the triangle shadow. Other than that, the picture is amazing. Three people... three buildings. And the color is fantastic.

this is a good image, but the shadow (cast by signage?) is a major distraction. using the kerb and the top railing as your top and bottom crop is pretty smart, gives it a kind of natural border. the people are a nice touch too. honda doesn't fit though, and overall the areas not in shadow feel, to me, a little too bright (though it might be the contrasting shadow that gives the impression of over-brightness). also, on an initial look it looks like it is one building (wth the shared shopfront) but only on closer inspection, you can see that they are indeed three. this shot does have a great deal of charm, and i hoe to see it do well. 7.

refreshingly different (wish that car wasn't there) your timing is great to catch the 3 people as well.

Very nice! It's rare when you see blue buildings let alone THREE of them right next to each other! Are you sure you didn't photoshop them? :)

Nice job getting three people in the same frame, too! Shame there aren't three cars! 9
