What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The composition and bold colors work for me—the curve of the circle, the yellow of the taxicabs, the black of the pedestrians' clothing. What could very easily be a scene with too much going on comes together thanks to the thoughtful framing. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
