your thoughts would be great
It's well spotted use of light and shadows, catching the driver nicely, in a vehicle that says large UK city.
I like that, it's really caught the driver well. I think I'd crop the far right bright pillar off though.
Thanks guys. Agree on the pillar as part of me thinks it adds but a big part of me thinks it just distracts
I'm not sure it really works as a high contrast exercise. The H/C looks a bit artificial. The nice sunny day above is also quite distracting. If you knock all that out, I think the very slanted lighting works well and even on the r/h pillar:

I might lop a bit off the top but I love the alignment of the cross on the church with the taxi light and the window with the illuminated driver. I'm ambivalent about the column.
Almost reminiscent of Magritte's empire of light series, where light and dark are not always where you'd expect to see them.
