I like retro borders and in a side challenge nobody can low vote me for it. I do appreciate the feedback on that, however. It reminds me to be sparing when using borders in a voted challenge. I should give serious consideration to whether it truly enhances the image, because it's impossible to use a border without someone objecting to the use.

The processing works well to add a vintage look to this, but I'm not a fan of the bordering. I can see it working well when presented in another medium, but the rabbeting on the edges and the white just looks silly in this context. If that white were transparent... it would work well.
The cigar is great, and I also like that you've captured him in front of a building which does not indicate the modernity of the shot, it is not an anachronism.

Good idea to run link your people to your transportation. I like the tones - like an old black and white that has turned to sepia with age..
