Your photo is well composed and very moving. I saw too much of this during the years I lived and worked in NYC. I understand the people who are just walking by. It's terrible that we become so hardened to this sort of suffering. This image says a lot.

I love this shot, you captured the emotion and told the story beautifully. Well done!

Chris,
I gave this a 7 when voting. I thought it was very well composed, especially for street (my favorite type of photography, but very difficult, I know). Obviously, it was the lack of focus that kept me from scoring it higher. You didn't miss on the emotive or message, though, and thus it is a strong photo in my opinion even with the slight blur. Great job.

The title combined with the photograph is very compelling. I know taking photographs on the street like this is difficult but you should do more of it.

Chris: I REALLY like the composition. Just try to get your main subject in crisp focus. Use focus to help the viewer know where to look.

This is so moving to me. Wonderfully emotive but I wish the focus was spot on as well.

I almost passed this over and gave it a 5, thinking "just another homeless shot," but then I realized how perfect the composition is. The man is truly isolated in the middle of all this clamor. 8

Blurry, it almost looks out of focus. The depth seems to be lacking in the same note.

Technicals: very soft. Conversion to B&W is below average. There needs to be more contrast and the exposure is probably overexposed overall.
Feel: Does capture the isolation of the homeless well. The backs of the passers-by helps with that. Death? Not without the title.
Score: 4
