Well I\'m guessing this to fail miserable. Taken at the City Hall in Seattle. I didn't quite catch the lady in black in the right stride, so that is a big negative.

People probably won\'t see this as street photography, so I am guessing a 4.3. Plus not in B&W, which many deem a prerequisite. I actually desaturated the red quite a bit, it was very bright.

Some curves adjustments, and a crop to 5x7 with mos of it at the bottom. A little too centered for my taste.

Post Challenge Comments:
Actually did better than I thought, though I wish I would have had more time to perfect this one.

Here is the original (very red):
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62318/120/475392.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62318/120/475392.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

and a B&W conversion:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62318/120/475393.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/62318/120/475393.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Another split-second and you'd have caught her perfectly in stride - still a great shot, glad I gave you an 8!

Jason, this is a really cool shot. Almost abstract. I think the patterns and the colors are very nice and the grain works ok. I think you're right about the stride though.

The version you entered is definitely the right one. The color works in this shot quite nicely, I think. And I'm a B&W kinda person so that says something!
