Nicely shot and framed.

The theme is powerful but the background elements are distracting. I think either show lots of the city around the man or not at all. Just a little is out of place.

Good shot, good execution.

There is something very disturbing about this shot and the title ... whether intentional or not...

This is sad, you have incorporated emotion into your shot very well. My only complaint, he blends into his background a little bit. Photo 9 City 8 total 8

Very emotive, the high contrast works well.

This is a good shot of 'City Life' IMO. The only changes I could recomend would be to slightly change the angle to remove the parked car and wqait just a moment longer for the pedestrian to walk out of the frame. One of my top ten picks this week.

Interesting, emotional, very news like. (9). Did you (just curious) try this in black and white, and/or rotate to make the viewing angle slightly askew in either your software or while you shot the picture?

clear crisp shot. sad subject material. the guy across the street is a sort of weird part of the story.

Too bad he can still smell San Fransisco. Weird angle, but nice shot. Definitely a shot of city life. I think more of the wall, and less of the street scene would have made this more powerful.

Very powerful image (and title) -- I like how the subject stands out against the brown building.

good topic. busy-maybe shooting him head on, having only the gate in the background, would help. right now the cane and the human compete, and the street distracts

Really nice, sad, but good photo. Even though he can't see, I don't think I would have the nerve to take his picture.

I like the shot, but I think cropping out just below the vehicle will make it stand out better. The vehicle and person in the back distracts me from the main focus. Although a second look, I now see the contrast in the two people and their situations in life.

Moving photo, with a impact. Composition could use impovment but I like this shot. Kee
