Probably shouldn't enter this but I invested too much time messing around with it. :-) Not enough smoke probably. I went out after work and noticed this guy working a cigar while taking a break (or he could have been done for the day). The severe crop is because he had a white plastic bag and bottled water at his feet that were distracting.

Love the framing, but subject doesn't keep my interest for long.

My only disappointment is that the guy is using a cell phone. Having a smoke is about stopping time for a moment so I would like to see him watch your great background.
But that's just an ex-smoker rambling, fantastic picture!
