Great combination of the hoardes and the city view in the background. Those rays of sunlight are wonderful.

Really like the rising steam and your choice of b&w pp. After looking at this image for a while I also found the lady at the centre of the frame surrounded by the crowd brings a new dynamic to the scene - almost as if she's rising above the crowd.
