*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A candid shot that appears to meet the challenge.

Without spending more time than I have exploring JJBeguin's images I have to admit that I am not familiar enough with his work to be able to judge your entry in the context of his work/the challenge brief, hence, I assume it meets the challenge. However, I do have the benefit of all your commenters who obviously approve and seem to agree that it is in his style.

For myself, I am here to give you my honest opinion, and as an image in its own right I am not very attracted to it. You describe it as a snap which is how it feels to me, a grab shot that could be improved upon. I'm not really sure I want to see someone eating their takeaway in public and two people in the soft background that are obviously an intentional part of the composition but for me they do not add to the story whatever that may be.

I'm sorry I can't appreciate your image as much as everyone else appears to but I am obviously in the minority and glad that others here appreciate it in the way you intended, well done, Sid.

Was always jealous to the deductive abilities of Sherlock Holmes, Auguste Dupin and others! They would have told everything about this girl looking at your photo. :-)
It tells the story even to me.
Nice catch! 8

Great story-telling tension here -- a woman concentrates on eating her hot lunch while two zombies saunter closer out of the background. Just the well-noticed, quirky slant that makes this image a fine homage.

Looks like there will be some “Candy Crush” for desert as well. nicely composed altogether. I’m not so sure about shallow DOF for street photography. In such mundane scenes, giving more visibility to the surroundings to contextualize is a plus I think.
