Makes you wonder what this man's life has been like. Nice composition.

Nice composition. Unfortunately the man is lost in obscurity. Exposure for the man rather than the stores would be better, you could probably rescue the levels some with processing.

I'm not much for receiving or giving comments, but since Candids are
near and dear to my heart, I have decided to give comment on every entry
in this challenge.

A good candid. The man does look a bit out of place being alone in the a mall though. It is more not like "watching life pass by" but "where the hell is my wife!". LOL....These guys, from my husband working in a nursing home, can be quite spunky. LOL..BUT, because he looks out of sorts I do like it as a candid. I also like the tones. It's a 6 for me.

The gloomy darkness of the image serves admirably to emphasise this guy's isolation - a sadness echoed by the sock fallen around the prosthesis. I would perhaps have tried to find a touch more local contrast, though as I said, the gloomy grey has an impact all its own.

Your main subject is out of focus. I do like the composition, though.
