This guys about to get mugged....somebody warn him!!!

Great shot. I know it's more upbeat and innocent but it has that French Connection (Gene Hackman shooting the French dude) angle going for it. cool stuff.

Good use of architectural line to lead the viewers eye through the frame and to the subject; however, I just wish he was doing something more interesting. Black and white treatment was definitely the way to go. Good job!

Personally I like this alot, bit of sexy grain perfect location to match that. Somehow I wonder if just the empty space would have been better, but I guess having the person adds another point of interest 9
