Post Challenge:
Wow! I didn't see this coming! Thanks everyone!

I entered another shot of this fellow in the Nightmares challenge that I thought was a better shot Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_783935.jpg that didn't do as well.

This was a spur of the moment shot, as I was actually out doing my first model shoot and noticed this guy out of the corner of my eye.

Sometimes I forget to look carefully at the Front Page. This time I finally got around to it and found this gem. Well done.

Congrats on the ribbon, Sam. He's certainly a very photogenic guy.

what I like about this is that the guy does not beg for money, or pity, or attention, or whatever. despite his obviously dire straits, he just sits there, keeping to himself... Congrats on the nice work and the ribbon!

That's spooky! He either doesn't move, or she was right beside me and we never saw each other.

I wonder if the guy knows how photogenic he is.

this is the same guy as in the nightmare (unemployed) image?
Oh man, I just read your comments. I agree with you, although I liked this one too - it's a fabulous candid.
Congratulations!!

Wonderful photo, perfect example of what candid means. One of my top picks. Deserves a ribbon!

Not bad at all. He's very confined by the frame which gives the viewer no alternative but to consider his predicament. Maybe a tad too sharp, but good details anyway.

unfortunately these circumstances always make the best candid shots....really well done. the black and white has perfect tonal range. 9

Very slight over sharpening does not affect this image's artistic impact. That slight technical issue is a nit pick and would not ordinarily affect any viewer. A very technically competant conversion that enhances the artistic effect in a very positive way. A very candid portrait of a man down on his luck - effective photo journalism.
