It's indeed a very good picture.
It is well centered, it's not blurred, the light is really good and even the random people are good models.

You must have taken this from the Castel Sant'Angelo top, I'm pretty sure: I really appreciate your idea and your style.

Really, the only flaw is see is just a lack of originality: why don't you try a Tilt version of this picture to see the effect or maybe some B&W or Direct Positive tries?

I understand that this was a classic tourist-but-deeper picture taken but I'm really sure you can try a different ideas to give to it a different view.

Keep up with the good work! I really love your pictures.

I think this is a majestic picture, well framed and composed, and clearly lit - all in all it even draws attention as a thumbnail, and full-size it makes you look again.
Contrary to an earlier critique by someone else I don't think it needs a gimmick like the tilt-shift technique at all, but if you're hell-bent on trying it, the bird's eye perspective makes it suitable for it.
As it's filed under "Street Photography", I'd have to say that it doesn't quite fit in with the best of this genre. We are looking at a crowd from a distance, not at individual people 'in a candid situation' (to quote the dA definition), with a discernible story and emotions.
Perhaps adding a bit of colour and contrast through Saturation and/or Curves might add more life to it; the abundance of sunshine has flattened the colour a bit towards the monochrome, but although I'd try that myself, it's really up to the individual taste of the photographer. However, I could really see this hanging as an eye-catching large print in a living room and providing the joy of watching for a long time.

Couldn't write a critique as requested as i'm not a premium member yet, but i do think the picture is very well done. It's a story to me..one always wonders who these people are and where they are going and came from. I love the play of light and shadow. I'm not a photographer so i can hardly comment on the technical aspects. All i can say is that it speaks to me and makes me wonder. Great job.

what i would do is maybe make the bridge a bit shorter cuz its hard to visualize it all at once so it is hard to see what is going on... :iconawesomefaceplz:

I think you have this one just right, because: I see a single mother with her kid, a see groups of old & young people and there is one guy, right at the bottom that has his back turned on a larger group of a people ... The think is, we can only presume what they are, what they're doing in life ... and I like that it makes me imagine it all ... I like that.
