In NYC, smoking isn't allowed in office buildings any more; so smokers have limited options.

The man on the front is in focus and crispy, and has a great facial expression. Good light as well. Man in the background may be part of the story, but to me he is a bit distracting (as is the tilted angle).

Two separate smokers, in different poses. Makes for an interesting picture.

Smokers; the only people to get regular fresh air :) Ditto to other comments inc the Jagar-esquenessnessness of it :P

I like the way your comps hold up when I zoom in all the way to look at details. I enjoy the details. Nice sharp light. The 2 men sharing the need to smoke.

Nice shot, I like the way the front mans shadow leads you straight to the man behind and his cigarette.

I like the determined look on his face, highlighting the necessity of this smoke. The second person is a nice addition, but unfortunately on the wrong side of his stare: the first guy looks to the frame, a little more on the left would have created more room for his view. But I realize you have to work with what is presented to you, and the light is beautiful here which is a great asset to your picture.

Same here in Colorado. No smoking inside anywhere and limited locations outside too. I'm proud to be an ex-smoker, March 17th 1995 was my last puff. The image is a nice candid. You caught a life moment with the front guy looking very serious about something. Maybe his normal demeanor in the city.

What a great shot - totally agree with all that Nam wrote. Something about how one smoker is in the light and theother in the bright sunshine kind of speaks to their personalities - smokers are pariahs and one guy knows it and is not taking any chances of getting called any nasty names. It has a great story.

Now see, I think this would have made a great Jagar entry - keep that in mind as you shoot this week :) Great light and I love his slightly disgruntled expression. The second smoker in the background is nice, too - I would darken that structure he's leaning on considerably and maybe take down the brightness on the main subject's legs just a bit - just to focus our attention completely on their faces, hands, activity. Like this a lot, Tom.
