Doesn't really work for me. Too much detail at the edge of the frame, cutting people in half etc. Not much drama and the black and white certainly doesn't add anything. The cyclists are too small in the frame to dominate it, so maybe you could have waited until there was a cleaner image - ie fewer people on the bridge and/or a better arrangement. It doesn't seem overly sharp either, but that is a limitation of the camera rather than the photographer.

I like the idea here but you need to pick your moment carefully, which might be hard with the shutter lag of a camera phone. What this really needs is a clear subject. The two people going right on the moped would be perfect (and they're very well placed, roughly on the intersection of thirds) but there are two many other people around so the "message" gets confused. Simplicity is good and a lot of this kind of photography is about waiting for what Cartier-Bresson called "the decisive moment" -- that instant in time when all the elements come together perfectly.

When you have a scene like this with relatively few people, it's best to try to avoid cutting them in half. Here, you have four groups but two of them have ended up getting partially cropped. Of course, if there were hundreds of people, it would be impossibe to avoid that but, when there aren't so many, it looks wrong

I'm guessing monochrome because it was mostly dull greenish-browns anyway.

Dave.

Thank you scooty, Frank and Dave. I change to mono, because i think the scene like this will more live in mono than in colour.

And Frank, I don't know how you did it, but the mod is amazingTongue. How you loosing the railway bridge behind and change with tree?
