Man, you got some good ones. But the one you chose -- that is amazing! Did you ask him to pose for you -- surely you couldn't have been THAT lucky to just stumble upon such a perfect street photo. On 2nd thought. . .seein' as how everything you touch turns to gold -- or actually blue -- I'm not surprised :)

FanTASTIC street photo!

Black & White works really good here, and a very good find, well done.

08/05/2007 08:25:14 PM
great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/05/2007 05:02:27 PM
Well composed. Looks like a corrected fisheye judging by the squares in the sidewalk and the can, but good job of keeping the man's proportions accurate.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/05/2007 11:02:08 AM
What a match! Great capture and all thoses subtle reflections, plus a very good title to "wrap it up"...

Nice capture. I like the b/w, but also wonder how some selective desat would have worked here, leaving either the man in color, or just the model on the building side
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2007 01:40:19 AM
Great image, shots like this are what define street photography.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2007 07:28:00 PM
This looks like one in the last street challenge and little posed. But, its good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/02/2007 01:58:23 PM
Going into my favorites i will give it a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2007 07:23:24 PM
Great candid capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2007 05:42:33 AM
One heckuva poster! I love the reflection. The gent in the foreground is nearly lost at first - which seems strangely appropriate as I'm sure he's nearly lost to many in real life.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2007 09:47:16 PM
This is my favorite shot! Well done! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2007 05:52:33 PM
What really stands out here is contrast: similar but opposing positions, the "good life" vs real life, swimsuit vs. street clothes, young & pretty vs older and downtrodden... Almost done with voting, my favorite so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2007 09:20:08 AM
Very, very contrasting elements in this juxtaposition...definitely makes for an interesting photo. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2007 02:30:40 AM
Nice capture - Love these type of shots - Just wish there was a little more room below the guy as the crop is a little severe.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 09:21:55 PM
Wow - good juxtaposition! Very cool capture. One of those images that says a lot and doesn't even need a title. One of my favorites in the challenge so far. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 08:54:17 PM
wow. great image, there is confusion as to main subject for me however...maybe the shot could have been takin at his level, as to make him appear central and the woman even more looming. lot of possibility here
