Thank you all for the wonderful comments. I have submitted several times this image (in color two different categories) without getting an EP. Will try in B&W.

Looks as if B&W was the right choice, JP -- it does unify everything and I sure hope to see this go further than the EP but at least you got that! #7783516

Yes you did and it's most deserving. I love the simple background, the textures, the blocky shapes of the windows and most of all the rider and shadow. Congratulations on the Finalist and good luck in the next round. #10186566
