Oh, no. . . a weak end to a very strong series.  If the other you've posted simultaneously with this one -- the boy in the lion's mouth -- soars to the sky, this one falls on its face.    I see why you like it for an ending.  It's as though the parade is marching off into the distance, and the final snapshot is being taken, all the riot and color clearing from the streets.  But, honestly, I can't even tell what's going on here.  Had I not known the woman had a phone in her hand, I wouldn't have been able to tell you.  I do like the matching gestures of their feet, but . . . if the final photo of the series should leave a strong lasting impression, this is doing a disservice to your project.  Go with something stronger to sound the final note.  Best, -h.
