    I'm having trouble seeing the road as the subject here but you make my top picks for the quality of the shot anyway.

    It would have been so easy to let the Flatiron building dominate the photo, but you've managed to keep the focus on the road and it's contents by choosing such an interesting angle. Well done.

    Great shot with lots of energy - angled cabs, people walking, etc. - but with all this going, plus the interesting buildings, the road is kind of overwhelmed.

    I like the idea and with the wide angle there is always a bit of distortion in the buildings. I think that this image will be helped if you use the transform - skew feature in photoshop and line the building on the right more vertically. The other problem is that the taxis obscure much of the crossing roads.

It is great the light you have on the Flatiron. I like the feeling of being right in the middle of the action, but the Flatiron is almost too compelling a sight and draws my attention away from the road.

intrigued by your settings - why so low an ISO and so high f number? Not too much noise / diffraction evident though...

    Dramatic composition with lots of movement in the foreground. The light brings out the texture in the buildings nicely.

    there is too much iron and not enough tarmac

    When I look at this photo my eye is immediately drawn to the central building before drifting down to the road when really it is the latter that should be the attraction here.

    Classic shot. Love what you did with the clarity, toning and symmetrical composition.
