To Joe's comment, yes, he's very much at peace. He lives down below and walks up here often just to sit and watch the city. He said the fireflies are out right now and the sight is quite lovely. Very nice gentleman - he gave me a tour of the area and walked back down with me to show me the path. (The way up is either via the same steep path, or by "train" - more info here.)

What strikes me here is balance, created by the light & dark areas and horizontal & vertical lines. But there is nothing to balance your subject, which brings my eye straight to him.

Nice how the inclusion of the person really ties everything together

I like this shot, the sum of it's parts really come together and adds a very serene pic.

I really like the asymmetric way you've framed the guy using the wall, bench, and tree. Nice back light on his head, too.

Very serene - the composition is great, keeping the eye in the frame.

I like the simplicity of the bottom half and how the town unfolds at his feet below him as he takes it all in.
