    The foeground is in the same light as the yellows so it looks a bit odd to be a couple of stops down. Crop square maybe?

    Well seen. You could just settle for the top half and make it a bit simpler perhaps?

    I like it as it is but was also going to suggest using just the top but having now tried it I feel it makes the image weaker. - without the lines at the bottom the figure and the sign seem to compete with each other rather than balance..

    That said I personally would lose a smidgen off the bottom...

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    The foreground seems dull as they’re mucky street tiles and don’t reflect much light back, but I can see what you mean about the imbalance.

    Initially it was all about the top half against the shadow only, but, I feel it just grounds the shot a little with the lower half and the lines kinda lead back to or point to the guy.

    Works either way I think.

    Well I think it obeys my spatial rule of two, but I'd prefer some air over top of the sign.

    I played with that one and I quite like it, but I also like a little triangle of contrast below it with the paving. I think there's a few shots in there, and as part of @lfc1892 's 'portfolio' several of them work. I think it's stronger with just the two yellow elements but some small triangle of contrast.
