It's a picture of a flower.

I think this is a brilliant piece. It shows magic in a bustling city in the form of a small flower that still hasn't been crushed by the rush around it. I also love how, to get this, you got in the path of a street car. It conveys a passion for your art, and gives new meaning to "Stop and smell the roses.". The angling may be a bit much. The color is great, how it's not black and white, but everything else is sort of grey-tinted. It gives the subject more focus. All in all a wonderful job!

Amazing. Feel like insignificance of the flower amid the all the city is magnified with. Well. The magnifying glass and the train behind it, maybe about to end its fragile life. Love it!

Beautiful work here. The bustling city background contrasts beautifully with the serenity of the lone flower. Also, the location of the flower in the middle of the streetcar's tracks is excellent, gives the photo a real sense of momentum. Colors a wonderful here as well, the overall grayish tone makes the brighter colors really pop, especially the yellow and green of the flower.

My only critique would be that the flower seems to be slightly out of focus. The ground immediately below it seems to be slightly more in focus and that draws some attention away from the flower.

That's an extremely minor detail though, so overall excellent work. Very impressed with this shot.
