    Love the mystery and the diagonal angle.

    I love this picture. What is going on, I wonder? Are two spies, whose big shadows are in the foreground, following the guy whose shadow is in the background? And the legs in the background, on someone carrying a bag, are encased in the shadow of a structure, as if that person is on another level of structural space adding dimension to the photo. I enjoy shadow portraits. I am reminded of a picture I made, which I call, My Own Worst Critic, which is online at: http://wmgphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/normal_Worst_Critic_Web.jpg

    The strongest element is the placement of the subject and the angle. The most distracting element is the break in the shadow in the upper left. It leads the eye away from the focal point a bit.

    I like the fuzziness of the image, it adds a little mystery - it is so out-of- context that it helps add to the viewer's perspective and personalized story.

    Strength: The contrast and the diagonals. I like the organic edges of the human shadoes and the straight edges of man-made object. The fencing in the upper right keeps your eyes from wandering off the page. All other lines lead to it. Distracting: Whatever the thing is hanging down from the top.

    I like the diagonals - the pair of shadows going one way, the boards going across and the boards' edges going into the frame. I also find the shoppers distracting but I don't know if I want to PS them out and keep the light rectangle behind or fill it in/crop it out to keep the focus on the pair of shadows.

    I really like playing with shadows. Like Kevin I think I would have taken out the people at the top to maintain the mysterious effect of the shadows and keep the focus going on just on the two shadows at the front.

    Hmm. I think to lose the two people ahead would lessen the image and here's why: part of the mystery is that the 2 ahead are being followed by the 2 behind....what would the hero or story be without them? :)
