What I like:
-The yellow van. For some reason I like that its not fully shown.
-I love the extra space infront and behind the main subjects.
-The sky*, very nice!

What I dont like:
-*the sky. Can anyone else see powerlines? I hate powerlines in the background. HATE HATE HATE. Which is why I purposely take photo's of powerlines in them JUST to practice removing them! Use the clone tool for this and ZOOM in and use a smaller brush for it.
-I can see blobs of blurry light brown and brown things on the bridge. I can see where you use spot heal and I wonder why you tried to remove it? It's all the more natural
-Photo not really in perfect focus or is it the photoshopping? I cannot tell, but I have to go real close to the monitor to see focus or lack thereof.

I cant dig this shot. I'm sorry. I like some aspects but the feeling is not there. I am waiting for tomarrow ;-)

I find the bus distracting as well as the powerlines. What is it about Nigeria that you want to convey in this picture? I think I would haved liked it better if the two people were where the bus is without the bus being there.
