Greetings from the Critique Club!

I like street photography and gave this a 6 in voting. Love the sense of him vs the world, washing by him like water past a rock. Poor bloke indeed - look at the faces of all those striding past him, avoiding eye contact, eyes downcast, talking on phones etc. If they saw him and weren't golfers, all they probably thought 'Ha! Luckless wanker' and kept on going.

Honestly I don't see much HDR here, probably cause this pic on its own doesn't really need it. The comp is good, the only change I would make is crop out the upper-left FURLA sign. I find it draws the eye away from the hapless golf-promotion guy. Otherwise keep up the great work!
