Wow thanks guys, you never get used to feedback from fellow photographers.. Your feedback certainly energizes me to get my camera out and share more images again.

This is best appreciated in full size. A fantastic scene that keeps ones attention by letting the eye explore the upper area and try comprehend the colours, detail and distortion, but then being drawn back to reality of the people. Awesome. Congrats with SOTW too.

Putting that ultra-wide angle to good use for a very creative capture distortion and all. Good thinking including the roof and far away elements as it draws the eye upward and to the right. Due to the fact that people almost always weigh visually heavier than most other elements I find my eye returning to the left and bottom and exploring the scene below, then back to the top and right, then back to the bottom, then up again... Getting my drift? 

Great composition an post-editing. Yet another feature. Well done!
