    I think this would be one of those cases where the motto "expose for the shadows, develop for the highlights" it very significant. The mid-range is very strong, but I feel like the exposure falls off in both directions a bit.

    The moment in time is impeccable.

    Others will give you the technicals, but well done on capturing the scene.

    What a really interesting pic! I love the gritty street scene helped by the noise and the bw. The background has a really smoggy feel to it helping to push it back from the foreground. The contrast may be a bit strong but it lends itself to the street-ness of the image and I think you've managed to hold on to enough detail in the highlights for them to be mostly identifiable. I like the two layers of players, a pair in the middle ground and the pair in the foreground. Wish I had taken this!

    Nice capture. The excellent use of grain and contrast. I like it.

    Not that there's anything you can do about it now, but a shallower depth of field would have worked better, IMO.

    Other than that - a great catch!
