    yes, sharpness is not great. I tried to focus on the man as he walked along (this was the 5th shot and the best balanced, although I really wanted to get all of the left hand tower in.

this was shooting in a rush so didn't have much option on the composition, but losing the bridge in the background makes the foreground figure as the only obvious visible person.

Might have to go back and try the same shot another time at a different angle...

The bridge thankfully no longer wobbles... and the sun was not strong enough for the 'walkie scorchie' to live up to its name... Sadly the cheesegrater hides the gherkin (!)

    Very "busy" composition with the bridge intermingling with the buildings. The lone figure adds a nice touch, but I am unsure of what you focused on as I see nothing in sharp focus.

    Amazing to find a single person amidst the bustle of this thriving city. I like the composition and the title.

    well the plot didn't say you could not travel out of town.
a nice picture anyway of solitude you can get even in a crowded city
the wibbly wobbly bridge whose designers hail from my own crowded city has blended into the background of the city and shapes

    Love the title which adds much to the image. Top 10.
