I took this as a drive by; I straightened and cropped, auto levels, contrast and color, and then I hit with a ton of unsharp mask, and then I used neat image and resized.

I like the feel of summer in the city and alone on the steps as if waiting for a medi-van and its just not there. Desolate, no, isolation maybe.

Good luck

The composition and colors are nice, but the picture is just way too blurry. Love the idea behind it though. 5.

Good idea but the focus needs work.

Could have used better focus. It looks as if you were driving by. Yet the picture still tells a story.

I'm sorry, but do you really think that this is a good image??

comp needs work, way too soft, looks like focus is to the left on white building, could of been a good minimalistic piece, color ok, light flat, did you use the usm to sharpen? if so, it only works when you are close to a good focus, nice texture, movement ok

Needed sharper focus. And maybe you could have cropped more to simplify the composition - the concrete path at the bottom isn't really necessary.
