Fantastic feel to this. The focus is on him and the rest transient...but its obvious that he is to and the city goes on...

A brilliant street photograph. We see far too little of this stimulating genre at DPC, and yours is a terrific example of it. I am especially impressed by the details ; the spotlit legs of the 'marching' pedestrians, the perfect positioning in the scene of the primary subject, and the fact that all faces bar his are turned away ... any of these alone would have been pleasing, but to capture all of them together can only be a remarkable mix of skill and good fortune. Add to that the man's slightly bewildered expression, his hat, the finger to his brow, and what is presumably a furled collapsible umbrella inexplicably held aloft like a flag, and you have an image that can easily provide half an hour's entertainment for the thoughtful viewer. Well, maybe not half an hour; lets just say about fifty times longer than the DPC average. 10

Nice slice of life, but why isn't his umbrella opened ;) Looks like it was taken 50 years ago, I like it

I very much like this shot. I think you caught the subject in the perfect composition, with the bright white behind his head serving to make that focal point stand out.

This image amuses me. I like the immediacy of it. Too bad he wasn't picking his nose. I think the grain works beautifully. 9 - good luck in the challenge!

I love this shot. The grain, the background motion, the clarity of the subject, and the composition all make this interesting and moody; the atmosphere is just fantastic in this. Excellent work.

hmmm... interesting... looks like a clip from an old film. I kind of like it... but I'm undecided about whether I would have liked a different view, or perhaps a different crop or not. Good choice in black and white... definitely looks like the kind of image that would have been way too colorful and busy.

Like an old film noir. I like it. It evokes a sense of another time.
