This is a fine documentary. You have the contrasting elements of youth with the adult world.

I played with the cropping and have a suggestion to dramatically increase the photos impact.

keep the bottom.
move the right side in to just include the man in the light shirt since you need the jacket whole.
move the left edge in to just eliminate the two men in light shirts.
drop the top edge to just above the center tower.

what you are left with has great impact which grabs the viewer, and places all our attention on the child, moving the impact scale to 5 stars.

Hi!

What I see here is not only a color-wearing girl, but a girl completely out of the ordinary of London-style: playful, non-business-like, etc.

I absolutely love the dark buildings that contrast with the little girl. I don't know if you ever play with your photos (by editing, I mean) but if you do, I would suggest lowering the contrast of the image so the little girl is the only contrasting point. Actually, I take that back. I would darken the sky a bit, and leave the rest of the photo unmanipulated. But I would only do that if I were you, because I don't edit my photos except to make them either black and white or sepia.

I guess what I'm trying to say that the little girl is not contrasting to the colors, but rather to the attitude of the rest of the piece. I like what you did here.

Nice job.

Wonderful street picture!
Not only the little girl playing in the middle of the street (I love her coat!) but the lines and the perspective are awesome! :heart:

Is it the Tower bridge we see in the background?

Featured on my profile page, under the widget Beautiful Works [link] and I will leave it there for a long time! :clap:
