I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Great mood you've captured here and you're right - this is suggestive of an old scene - your coloration seems in keeping too, though of course his ear-gear is a little anachronistic. I actually think that adds to it though - it convinces that this isn't a themed place or a living museum but something you've happened upon and interpreted. I like that.

Critical stuff: Nope

Overall: A delightful candid.

Great shot. Where did you find Dicken's or did you bring him? Either way very well composed and processed.
Good Luck!
