This image has a dynamic balance that sets it above the run-of-the-mill street work, and into the space of decisive instants that capture more than quirkiness, but freezes a balanced moment that is descriptive and beautiful at the same time.

It has such a nice clear 'hook' in the cyclist, contrasted well with those clouds. Good work on the dynamic range there! No processing artefacts - was it generally dark enough to balance naturally, or did you have to help it along? Either way, good stuff.

But what lifts the image is the context - the lines of cars, buildings, and, as the closing element, the lights. It's almost like a textbook set of lines of thirds (not quite, but strongly suggestive of). For me, these lines, along with its focus, give the image its compositional decisiveness. No cyclist, and you have an interesting, but really ho-hum picture of a city hill. Zoom in on the cyclist, and you have an interesting frozen moment, good, but not really exceptional. Taken all together, with the strong technical foundation - sharp focus, good tone work - make for an image that stands out above the rest.

There is also a school of thought that says good street can only happen with normal and wide angle lenses. Your stretchy 157mm compresses those car lines, 'making' those critical compositional lines. For many reasons, this image could never be taken with a 50mm.

Well done on 'seeing', being there to capture it, and getting the whole together.

i really like the fact that you haven't used a wide angle here, because the sharp edges of the street and the buildings adds to the compressed feeling of the picture - which is very nicely juxtaposed with the big, theatrical clouds in the back, thus making the cyclist stand out in between these two forces. excellent shot!!
