Thanks for listening.

Some commenters felt the people at the upper right corner are distracting. I technically agree, but I am of the opinion that distractions are valuable, and indeed I worked hard to recover those cornered people, as can be seen considering the original image:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61396/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1048029.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/61396/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1048029.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

In many cases I feel that removing distractions "closes up" the image, while leaving them makes an "open ended" piece, or an "unfinished image", as ubique used to call them.

See more regarding the qualities of unfinished images in this thread by ubique regarding Paolo Pellegrin.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Way to us a POV to good effect! Superb (almost magic trick) composition with the zones of population peppering the image. Your title is good too - reinforcing the sense of discrete zones. Excellent toning - I particularly like the 'wave' of black bottom centre.

Critical stuff: Nope.

Overall: Superb scene, superbly seen.

Love this shot, people on the upper right corner is a bit distraction for me, crop this out will give more impact, imho.

Beautiful lines. 8, would have been a 10 if it was cropped from the right.

Good Luck with it in this large and interesting grouping.
