The geometric roof support and the human activity below attracted me to this scene. Geoff

This is very attractive use of portrait - it does what a vertical composition should, it leads the eye gently up and down and relates the different levels to each other. This creates a link between the very elegant roof and the human world below it. Though there's scope for a strong square crop here, which would create a more concise, confined, less airy feel.
I think I'd like to lighten shadows just a bit on all those dark winter coats, just to get a bit more detail if possible. Black coats really are the bane of street photography, which basically is what this is.

I like this, - nice architectural shot, and a moment of time busy schedules, frozen.

This has mono written all over it Geoff (tiny writing, hard to see). And especially because theres so many black coats!

The Fuji has simply the best mono from the camera you can get from any camera, so try using it sometime.

So just a mono conversion from me, and straightened the verticals just a touch.

Thanks for the comments and excellent mods. Willie - yes the Fuji does have a b/w setting with red filter effect which would have been the one to use for a sunny day in London - next time hopefully! The black coats were a bit of a problem Moira but, having just watched a program re. Lowry, they do look a slightly Lowryesque?

Interesting you mention Lowry, - I was thinking of him, matchstick men, when I was converting to mono, - so yes, for me theres that hint.
