Wow, Thank you for the great acknowledgement as well as comments.
I knew this would not do well, but I enjoyed taking pictures of this car. It's on my training route and when I saw the car the first time, I knew I had to return. I did so a couple of mornings later and traced the owner and had a chat with him. He was standing next to the road warming up to a fire like all the locals next to the road do being winter. I took some pictures of him with his car. The shot I wanted to take did not happen since at the time of shooting him with his car, there was another vehicle parked right in front of this scene.
Eventually he had to leave for work and when he left...this space also cleared.

I was about to leave when I saw this guy starting to sweep the pavement and took a couple of shots. In processing I did drop the exposure in order to make this figure faceless.

Pride can be as unique as there are people. Scoffing however at the items dear and meaningfull to another person and that in which he does find pride, could very well be the worst kind of pride

Now this was severely underrated. I gave it a 9. Portrays the title concept perfectly and should have been near the top instead of that cliche eye candy I put in.

Great street capture.

Nicely done. The quirky composition drives the point home.

Need more detail in shadows (man's face can't be distinguished from hat and clothing). I'd flip the photo so the man is on left side of the car.

Really captures the moment and tells a story.

Interesting photo, I like the framing; not sure about green border lines

Lol - who wouldn't be proud of such a fine example of automotive engineering . .

This doesn't scream pride to me in any way, but I really like the image. :) 6
