First Impressions
A good photo opportunity, but the angle isn't so complimentary for Toto. Not enough 'street context' to be a strong street photography image.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
I don't mind at all that there are no people in the image (although I see the OOF (out of focus) rear someone), but I would like to have seen more context, as mentioned above, especially for this Challenge. The scene looks like it may have been interesting and full of color too, which would have added some more story and interest overall.

With the close crop and focus on the subject as is, I find the image unbalanced and dominated by the upper area.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
44/135 and a score of 5.46 is quite a good placement for this Challenge. Your commenters didn't get a strong sense of street photography either. More context would definitely have helped you.

Summary
A good opportunity that you probably didn't have much time to compose and frame, the color combinations are interesting and work well (although the green throws the balance out a little). Perhaps a little more DOF (depth of field) and more context would have given the image more of a story to tell.

Nice shot although I can't really tell if it's in the street or the back yard.
