For me the interest in this street shot is more in the forms & shapes rather than in the people.
I imagine you shot this in a hurry but it seems a shame the scene is cut top & bottom.

You're right, I had to shoot quick and this is the shot - at widest 16mm (24mm in old money). The very next thing to happen was to be told off by a railway guard and ushered away - "No photography allowed". I then went to the station master who said "No photography allowed... without permission". It's the security cameras they particularly don't want you to take pics of. Interestlingly, if you just look stupid and use a compact they tend to leave you alone.

Overall I don't think it quite works, but I do love the range of tones in the conversion.

"Interestlingly, if you just look stupid and use a compact they tend to leave you alone."
Or a phone, now everyone carries a camera.

I mean if you look like you're not too bothered about the shot you're taking. I've nothing against compacts, especially the LX3.
