Nice DOF. B&W was a good choice, it emphasizes the composition. The real man is a little blown out, but it doesn't bother me that much. 9.

effective exposure, but it's hard to tell in b&w if the back figure is alive! interesting!

good story; good depth of field too much detail on the worker would have ruined the effect.

Nice work. I love the juxtaposition between the sharp sign and the figure in the background.

Ah, I think you got the pose just right. I think the person is just a hair overexposed evidenced by the blown highlights on the arms and shoulder. Still, a good fit for this challenge.

If this was candid, this picture is so cool, I'm sure it was set-up though. Still love this picture, good choice on making it black and white.

Nice use of color and light to make the background seem antiqued and match the sign. I enjoyed this. One of my favorites in this contest.
