Greetings from the Critique Club!

I laughed when this image popped up on my screen - not at the image but because it's your first ribbon and far from the first critique I've written for you! Sadly, Louie, there isn't a lot here to pick apart...it's always a little tougher to critique a ribbon winner, so bear with me :-)

This is a wonderful capture of this old soul shuffling along, against a very powerful backdrop. Those lines on the ground all lead away from him and further isolate him, even though he is present there in body, he isn't in spirit and it shows. His slumped shoulders and whole demeanour speak of sadness and perhaps even dejection, like he isn't looking forward to giving that bouquet to the recipient. Wonder why?

And I think that's why it's here on the homepage. This is such an achingly telling moment taking place, that we want to know more of the story. The capture itself is crisp and detailed, the dof is perfect for this shot and we're also looking down on him, as he in turn is looking down; he is literally below us. We've all seen this faceless man and I bet more than a few of us fear being him, someday.

Finally, your pp is just spot on, as is the title. The pp is just enough, the title is simple and says volumes, and that's all you need.

Feel free to PM me,

Susan

The wide view of the man is great and says all alone
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great title. Love that there's not another person in sight, no cars, nothing. Makes for a wonderful composition! The colors are dreary, which adds to the picture. The pp is well done.

But he has someone to bring flowers to--that's good. Love the texture.

His hunched over posture really adds to the sad mood. I like it. The use of diagonal is perfect.
