Thanks for all the positive comments everybody, it's very much appreciated! After I uploaded this one I realized that I had an element from a wider shot that would make this even better. I ended up stitching the bike path with the two bikers and extending the right side of this photo and slightly cropping the left. The woman even appears to be looking at the crowd. I'll probably resubmit this version since I think it's a better image now. Thanks again!

Hi Carl.
I just saw this photo for the first time. I've got to tell you, it's excellent! I love history, especially in photos. You have a past and present photo all in one. No better way to show how the times have changed! Congratulations on your win!!

Carl, I found this image of yours featured on the Contest page, and felt I had to comment! I agree with what Jessica said above actually...and congrat's on your Second placing with it. I think I like the amended one that you posted a bit better though... I, like you, think it's an improvement over the original one you posted! Anyway, well done...
