Like the sense of stillness, almost church-like with that warm light... real contrast with rush-hour I would imagine...

I left a previous comment about your eye getting pretty darn good, but apparently it was denied/deleted because I also included links to information about the diagonal method of cropping; go figure. Anyhoo, if you feel like googling for "diagonal method photography" you might find the results interesting.

@Dan: Thanks, Dan. I actually got a chance to check out the first link before the links mysteriously disappeared from here. It looks very interesting and I actually spent a fair bit of time today trying to work out a good way to implement the method with The GIMP. Not as easy as I had thought it would be, both the software aspects and the aesthetic aspects. I tried applying the principle on the "A Man and His Beer" photo (May 18th, 2008 photo).
The software I use (long story) has selectable overlays on the crop screen, one of which is the diagonal, so it's pretty easy here. I can send you some more links/information if you wish; is your email address the same one you had one slj/fjlij?

@Dan: I still have it but I never check it. You can mail me through this site and it will reach my current address. I'd love to hear what you're using. My makeshift method is a bit of a pain.
It look so naked without any furniture like benches or the like. Not even a trashcan but it is still clean. I like the colors, nice shot!
