this is one the best of your photos. this is for a number of reasons...

1) many of your photos (and this is your main failing) lack something in the foreground to capture the eye. when you look at artists like gilad or angelreich, they will normally have something in the foreground which has subtle lines to draw your eye towards the background, so that you appreciate all of the picture. many of your photos lack this vital aspect, which means that they are automatically dull and uninteresting to the eye. this photo is much closer than many of your photos, creating a well of information for the eye to dive into

2) the red shirt particularly stands out agianst the background, it's intensity draws the ey upwards towards the head,

3) which is turned away from the camera, symbolising neglect and lonelness.

4) the architecture in malls is often intesting, and you capture this well by bringing out shadows and highlighting areas of interest.

but you need to work on emphasising colour and intensity. bring something to the foreground, which draws the eye outwards. the lines in this photo draw the eye to the figure - the subject of shot. try using HDR in your panoramic shots, you will be interesting to see what effects you get. play around with different filters, and to avoid glare invest in a hood protector.

i love the play between colour and darkness in this piece, but bring it out a little more.

all in all, a much better piece than many of your other pieces...
