critique my final year piece please..

I am new to this forum, but have been using photoshop for a while now. This particular piece was for my degree show a few months back. Each individual person is taken separately on the street as they wait to cross the road. The background and bench are taken separately too. I have attached the final image and also some of the originals.

Well executed, Good cutouts as far as I can tell from this low res sample, everyone on the bench is grounded, nice reflections on the ones in the water.. overall Great Job!! Kudos!!

Yeah good job.

I'd shut down those bags though as they're popping quite a lot and leads your eye to them.. Unless this is what you wanted? I think the sky could do with brightening up too, there is a stong light on the people but the sky is quite dull... A overall 's' curve on the background will help too, the blacks in the people are darker than the blacks in the foreground... A little extra contrast will help bed them in...

Just my thoughts though!

Hi Roc, Long time since I saw everyone but good to see you just the same.
Light my friend is a given gift much like the piano, You can stroke the pretty keys, add some strokes of light up and down but in the end until time pauses and that inredible note plays over the winds it is all for not until if falls upon at least one ear that cares.
WLY?

Just curious - in your example of the street shots you show a woman perhaps looking at a cell phone screen with a large blue scarf. She is not in your final result?
