Nice symmetrical shot with lot of interesting detail. Would crop off the very bottom and darken down the pavement at the bottom to concentrate attention on the main events, if it was mine...

Although the line of the roof is perfectly straight, the road surface falls away to the right. I'm sure it does in reality but I just had to level it up!
Unfortunately, that's resulted in a slightly tighter crop which probably wasn't your intention.
While I was at it, I reduced the contrast a little and also reduced the exposure by a tiny amount, (-0.2) just enough to tone down the bright bits slightly.
Just my opinion, hope it's OK.

Bren.

A super shot — well seen!

A few little points:

— I agree with Bren about the sloping floor, which does give a slightly uncomfortable, wonky feel to the photo. It may be that the floor is level in reality, since you appear to be standing just a fraction right of centre (the centre-line of the roadway hasn't been rendered as a vertical line), which would skew the perspective a little.

— For my taste, the walls lean in just a little too much. I'd make a partial perspective correction to tone down that convergence a little but I've not posted a mod as I didn't want to crop.

— Getting really picky, it's a shame that the guy on the right-hand margin is so close to the edge of the frame. A couple of feet farther back and he'd be perfectly placed to balance the 'phone boxes.

Sadly if i moved further back then you would see a gate that blocks the entrance. Thanks fort the feedback.

I meant taking the photo a second or two sooner so he was a little farther back on his trajectory. Smile
