    Thank you Mepo. I appreciate your comments.

    jomari: The problem is that many members do not read the challenge description or they read it and only absorb part of it. I plead guilty to that behavior in the past.

Your entry is a perfect illustration of a scene with two main vanishing points v.p.). One off to the far left found by extending the roof, window, door and other details that run along the face of the buildings. The other v.p off to the right, located by using similar lines on the side of the structures facing us. Using any building(s) in this orientation is one of the first lessons one takes in the study of perspective.

Both these v.p. are not visible but that was specifically allowed by the challenge statement.

I had this in my favourites but it didn't make my tt because I was not a fan of the pp nor of the foreground traffic - no criticism of the v.p. presentation at all that part I liked.

    Although the challenge description stated that it was not necessary to have things meet on the horizon but merely to display perspective, I'm not sure why this didn't meet the challenge for some. To the comment about VP being on the wrong side, I'm not sure what that means. Maybe because Australians drive on the left side of the road it all looks flipped to those who drive on the right?

    Sorry but I don't see how this meets the challenge. Maybe an explanation after voting might help?

    extra info was not needed until voting over
your vanishing point is on the wrong side ????

    Conversion to B+W was the perfect choice to enhance the lines leading to a VP. Love the post processing and the wonderful detail. In my faves.

    Pretty image but no VP for me.

    I suspect it would feel too cluttered as a colour photo so I think it was a good choice to make it b+w. I like the sensible, uniformity and straightness of the buildings compared to the uneven, tumble and fuss of the traffic. Really good.
