Nice shot and I like the soft focus effect.

What I don't like is the red blob on the end of the row of seats. Everything on this image is delicate, the people walking and the shop fronts down to the lady sitting on the bench relaxing. Then you have this big red blob taking up alot of room and my eyes are instantly drawn to it, cutting out the rest of the picture.

Oh and pesonally I wouldn't have chosen that style of frame as it does nothing for the picture. I nice simpleblack or white frame would look better.

These are my views and they are here to help and not to have a go at your hard work.

Unusual treatment and for this shot I think it works quite well, almost sepia tone, if that was what you were after? The pigeon looks as if it is standing on her knee.
Have to agree with paullucas about the colour on the end of the seat though, should have been toned down a tad, again just my own thoughts on a good street scene image.
Not everything in life is Black & White, If only it were!
Kind Regards,

I like this piece of art but have to agree with the others that you should really tone down the end of the seat, it steals too much attention from the picture.
