Greetings from the Critique Club

I think this was a highly original entry for this challenge.

I like the choice of a street with a slight uphill - it aids in the vanishing point view.

The shadows on the trees and firehydrant help to push they eye up the street to the vanishing point.

The point of view seems just slightly off to me for the overall composition - it might need to be cropped a little along the right edge to have it conform a little more to the rule of thirds.

I enjoy the choice of B&W and found the exposure wonderfully moody.

Great toning. It reminds me of my photo "Darkening Moss" from Puerto Rico. I am fond of the softness and the shadows. I get the feeling of a somewhat erie silence in this neighborhood.
