I love that HDR look you have on this, Ivory. This is truly a street moment captured. I like it!!!!!!!

This definitely needs to be rotated about a degree or two clockwise. I also feel like the two men on the left, and the police on the right, are battling for the viewer's attention. The men on the left are probably where your story is, if they were more in the frame.

your processing is interesting, though a bit over the top as you're starting to loose quality all over the place where you've dodged. segregating the 2 groups from the rest of the photo is also interesting, but i don't feel a strong connection between them. though the guy on the left does seem to have a vested interest in the police activities, i think his meaning needs to be a bit more overt to work. your escaping the quotes, i assume to get them into your title, seems odd as well.

Too much dodging and burning. The post-processing you chose alienates your subjects from the scene rather than making the viewer focus on them. It looks like you had a nice scene that you started with, but the processing really hurt this one.

Is the snow supposed to be in color? Im really not in love with your selective coloring for a few reasons: 1. It looks almost like the people in color were just put in there. 2. I dont really get what this picture is supposed to convey? And i dont get the connection to the Title is. Maybe im just having a mind space or something.

Very interesting shot. Most of these street scenes are in B&W because it works better but I think the color is great here. Nice job. 7

Eye-catching, for sure! For the most part I like it a lot. Could be my monitor, but the dark areas seem a bit too much so, and I have to strain to make out what's going on in the background. The foreground figures, though, are remarkably rendered. Would like it even more if the center cop (?) were facing the camera or even some of the others. 7

where are the snow flakes away from the persons? Oh, got it, you brightened the 5 persons only (check between the feet of the middle uniformed). interesting work. Yes and now I found the darker snow flakes as well.

seems over-processed

Really great shot, love the setup and tones and colors and your editing. The mix between B&W and the color is perfect, and your composition is right on. Nice work.

rather crude editing

A neat shot but the post processing is just.. not good. It is not natural that the man with the stroller would be dark while everyone else in front is lit up.

Is that snow? I cant figure out what the white dots are on the people. Solid picture otherwise.
