Kind of an odd candid, I realize, but it is indeed how I framed it and what I was shooting for. :-)

The Lensbaby combined with a bit of a warped reflection.

I promise I'll get a few more "normal" candids soon.

I quite like it. The complexity is well suited to the cityscape feeling and the man is nicely framed. It would probably be a bit better if the man wasn't blurred in the lower left corner.

There's great visual impact.

I'm spinning! There is something about squared focal point that competes directly with the rest of the image. Life is dynamic, who needs a rigid frame. Great shot!

Why go for "normal" when you can do this? Personally I think it's great!

Well, *I* love it!

Now listen, young lady, if you don't start getting a bit more normal I'll have you infected with a common cold.
Oh.

This is a good catch, Deb. I think maybe there's kudos for keeping it, too.

Wow, very cool. I live good glass / reflection pictures and this one is good!

So cool.. I really like the Lensbaby effect...

Magnificent! and great comments so far as well. My take on the guy is that there's a bit of motion blur instead of an LB focus issue, just a guess, and not that it matters. Your genius is shining through here it seems to me.

I know its a Lensbaby image, but I am not that keen on what it does.

Very cool and fun! I love how much there is to see, but with the lensbaby, I'm still focused on him.

PAW - The reflections are interesting and it looks like multiple reflections, though it could just be that it's a reflection of multiple buildings. The Lensbaby gives it a mysterious look, and you got better focus on the guy than you would with most Lensbaby shots I've seen. Maybe because of the aperture?

I love the contrasts here. The different building shapes, guy vs architecture, and focus vs blur. This is a very cool shot.

Focus schmocus! This is fab, really. I like the fact that the guy's face blurs a bit, adds mystery and motion for me. My favorite part is the cacophony of reflections, just wonderful!

love the colors and overly of textures. For a "candid" this is a very well-composed shot!

Nice a lot to look at in one photo

Very dynamic! Nice composition, but I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' quiche. It would be nice if the face was completely in focus. Never worked with a lensbaby, but, looking at this one and others, the focusing point seems rather difficult, but sometimes, like here, the effects are very nice.

like the composition, and the colour not sure whether I like the lens baby's odd focusing yet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Like the overall composition and rather chaotic urban feel. Colors are good too. With the selective focus, though, would like to see more of the guy's face in focus.
