I had tried to capture the faces of St. Petersburg at the red light crossing from the other end taking the remarkable sculpture and symbol of St. Petersburg in the background.
I have added the BW version in the workshop.
Let me know your opinion.

Uh, this is a nice one, Vivek! SPb in a nutshell - this sculpture by Pyotr Klodt (who also produced the sculpture of Nicholas I on St. Isaac's Square) of a young man taming the horse on the corner of Nevsky and Fontanka, and a lot of young faces so so so typical of my city! I think I like the BW version better, but this is a matter of taste of course.

Hi Vivek, interesting composition. I like the idea that you have created by capturing the sculpture centre piece with the faces at the bottom. The wiring overhead appear somewhat distracting to me :D
Overall good depth of colour as well as pov. Well done.

Your composition works really well here Vivek.
I like the tight framing, and the inclusion of the waiting pedestrians was inspired.

The people in the photo have all different facial expressions, add interest to the photo. Good composition. I prefer this one over the b&w version. Best wishes. Danilo

The people and the wires as a frame for this black frontal statue.
Good idea and a great result.
Very well done.

Interesting capture with an array of faces. Seems like the light was getting in their eyes too. Interesting to see the large number of electricity wires in the composition; adds a graphic detail. I probably would have focused more on the faces and left out the statue instead, but you have captured an interesting moment. Well done.

Hello Vivek. I really like the idea here and I do like the color version better. All of the powerlines left in the shot give interesting angles that play off the form of the statue. Again, I'm very fond of expressions and there are many of them here. Good job not cutting too many faces off. Nice definition in the clouds as well.
:) be back.
