For exampble, there is white n the middle of your ferris wheel and that brightness is the same as the whites on the fence, on the bike, and in many other places. All of those whites are made to look even brighter by the black parts in the ferris wheel, the shadows, the fence's basic form, etc. Normally, accents are meant to help guide a viewer's eyes around a picture, but when there are so many accents, it's hard to look at just one. There's no particular flow from one bright spot to the next either, making the image cluttered in terms of light composition.
A piece with good interest and guidance should be able to guild the viewer from one part of the picture to the next. For you, it would be, maybe, from the ferris wheel to the face, from the face to the bike, and from the bike back to the ferris wheel. Along the way, the outer edge of the ferris wheel could guid toward the roof of the building, the girl's clothing, and other things. In this manner, a story can be told. Black and white will take away from that "journey" within a picture.
As an alternative, try using dull but complimentary or near-complimentary colors instead (opposite side of the color wheel or close to the opposite side of the color wheel). Use pale yellows and pale yellow-greens or even pale blues for lighting things. Purple and red on top of teal looks really good for shading.
I love it!
