    I love the colour, but the scene itself doesn't do much for me. It's a little off kilter and I don't know if it's on purpose, but for me I hurts the image.

    pretty good urban capture, i like the vivid colors of the girls outfit matching the add on the bus, the body language of the little girls is what makes this shot work for me you have capture a wonderfull moment .

    Colorful shot, love it!. All about yor eye on this picture, 100% photographic. To say something to be improved from my point of view, the picture may have been rotated a little to the right, so you give it a more symmetric overall view.

    I totally love the colors of this shot, the only thing that disappoints me is that dark pole on the left, maybe crop it out.

    Great colours for a shot in rainy conditions. I can't find an interesting subject, unfortunately, and also the photo is a bit tilted to one side. But again the colours kind of make up for it.

    like the colors, maybe zoomed out/wider angle to get more of background so that the pole on the left doesnt stick out so badly and also to show that the road is sloping and its not you whose hand was tilited....and a lower perspective would help too, maybe if you'd crouched down a bit...

    Nice colours, very bright, which I like. Still I think you should have either stepped closer, or further back (or wider angle lense). The black pole sortof distracts me from what you want me to look at. If you would have moved closer it wouldnt have been in the photo, or further away, it wouldnt have been so distracting as it would have also been thinner.

    Thank you all 100 Points members for your elaborated comments. It's interesting to notice that the score varies from 5 to 9 and with most ratings at the lower end.
    I agree with everyone when it comes to the tree. I should have found a way avoid it. Having said that, this is not a staged picture. I was passing by and noticed the kids. To have the tram passing by just seconds after, was pure luck. Asad is right, by the way. The road is actually sloping so I don't feel like straighten the picture (maybe even more so because this is my neighbourhood). As for the cropping advice in general; Will the one I suggested in my note work? The text on the tram ("Huden min stråler av lykke"/"My skin beams from happiness") as well as the kids are crucial for this photo. This photo is listed at the 5th "Most interesting" at the Explorer page for the day of its upload. I found that very inspiring. Even so, the comments from the 100 members are far more instructive. Thank you all for speaking your mind!

    What a serendipitous moment! I do agree though, with the crop. It would make it even better.
