Took this sneaky shot of an old gentleman sitting in a coffee shop. I found this to be an interesting shot because although it depicts an old man having his idea of his own holiday by himself having a simple cup of coffee, the framed picture just above and to the left of him shows three young adults having the time of their lives basking in one another's company while on holiday.

this has an uncanny similarity to this favorite of mine

so to be fair, yours goes into my favorites, too :). Great shot!

Wonderful shot. The picture with the happy group really really puts this over the top. 10

I like this one a lot. I even like the ladies shoulder in there and the white spot on the floor in front of his foot. Gives movement to an image that could easily be static.

i like the b/w

I like this type of shot but i would have prefared the shot more if the arm/shoulder in the bottom left was not in the shot.

i absolutely love this.

There something really interesting in his attitude. too bad for the shoulder in the foreground...

The person in the foreground is distracting from the true sense of the image. Other than that, I like the tone and clarity.

it's like the picture on the left is mocking him.

I love the tall crop. It seems to give the image the stillness that the subject is experiencing.
