    Strengths:
    Strong composition with the circle of the centre green area and then the white lines along the curbs. The repeating crosses and the light nicely direct the eye to the ambulances.
    Suggestions:
    No suggestions to make.

    Strengths:
    Dramatic, poignant, story-worthy! This grabs my attention for a number of reasons: the unusual POV, lighting and intense bursts of colour. Well seen and treated, and a great choice for this theme.

    Strengths:
    I love the perspective of this shot. Nice composition with strong lines and curves. Nicely exposed with good shadows
    Suggestions:
    I would have liked to see some people in the photo which would fit better with my interpretation of the theme.
    Response:
    True enough about the people.

    Strengths:
    The unique angle is attention grabbing, as are the pools of light and the saturated colours; Once the attention is captured there is time to appreciate and think about the subject. {Excellent title] The pools of light contrasting with the shadowy overall feel suit the subject well. Moving. Nanncy
    Suggestions:
    A slight crop from the right would lessen the impact of the yellow barrier and lend greater focus on the subject.
    Response:
    I think cropping out the plywood and barrier would have been too tight with the truck. I do agree it's distracting, I could probably have done something in Photoshop to remove it.

    Strengths:
    Very interesting perspective. We rarely see this angle.
    Suggestions:
    An alternative would be a square crop on just the ambulances. Perhaps with some shadow lightening.
