I prefer this picture to the one from yesterday. The two people are perfectly placed, both adding interest and breaking up and contrasting against the dominating straight lines of both the architecture and the paved walkway. A great photo.

Very, very strong shot! I love the intricate, repeating patterns. And the building is a true edifice...the people walking by really help to give it scale. Excellent.
