I like the above picture because of straight lines, the reflection visible on the right side of the frame. But what is it actually? 2nd try:
Suddenly, the passage starts to live. Now next to the shapes there is a dynamics, and the reflection is even more interesting.

This is one of the widely discussed buildings that emerged in Eindhoven city centre several years ago. You can like or dislike it, but one thing is for sure - it is interesting. The mood of this picture (despite relative warm light) is somewhat cold. Empty space and a big 'egg' raising out of it. The same building with some dynamics around it:
I know that it is subjective, but to me the mood is different now, mainly due to a bicyclist on the first plane.
So they are people that bring life to the city. Having them on a city photo can change it substantially. Something to remember when taking city shots next time.
