Re: it is a cluttered shot in color or B&W

Too much going on in this photo, without any distinctive focal point. You have the nice lines of the walkway, but then there are all those random people cluttering up your frame and also the buildings in the background horizon are in focus too.

Everything is in focus so it just becomes visually overwhelming.

Hmm, well that's one viewpoint.

I must say, I totally disagree and have just commented on it on flickr to say how much I like it. There's a wonderful play on symmetry going on and Renato's legendary black and white quality and knack for showing life as it is, but in a beautiful way.

I'm not seeing the clutter you are talking about. Much as I enjoy simplicity and minimalist photography, for me, every detail in this shot ads to my viewing pleasure. I'm looking forward to seeing it in print.
