Some may think this looks posed but it wasn't. I was standing next to this man looking at a cruise ship and I turned to walk away and saw him and snapped a picture. I struggled choosing the right photo for this challenge. In the end I'm pleased with the result no matter what the score is.

this looks more like a pose than a candid shot.

His hat and shirt blend in with the background a little too much...

Nice melancholic look, could possbly have done with a touch more contrast as the face does not really pop from the material in the background

Nice but the details on the man are outweighed by the bright background.

Interesting composition but the background looks sharper than the main subject.

The left hand and rail spoils the profile of the man's face. Composition feels cluttered and unbalanced. Man's face is too high in frame. Not sure what you're communicating here.
