    'member the Bag Lady?

    Well... I went back today and she wasn't there. So I'm free of the fear of flying shoes.
    This guy, though, let me take a pic. So here he is...

    Might try getting lower on the subject next time...eye level. Guy has a great face and could have nade for a good portrait, but as the previous poster said, looks like a quick shot a point-n-shoot.

    I think it's a good picture and does a decent job of conveying some disparity, emotion is good. Some good pictures can look like a snapshot and still be a good photo because of great subject matter.

    Same as erose.

    Looks like a guy waiting for the bus.
    Absolutely no sense of disparity. No emotion.
    Holding a cup makes a beggar not.

    The yellow line cutting through his head is bothersome.

    I would crop out most of the shot, just keeping him from the chest up. I would also clone out the distracting portion of the backround.
    The focal point of this man is his face, not his body...

    In my opinion, this is a prime candidate for B/W. But then again I am a B/W junkie. :)

    Anyway... My 2 cents...

    Thank you all for taking the time to reply.

    Good point, get down to eye level... noted.

    Thanks, that's what I felt - I loved his expression. Compensated for the outdoor lighting :)

    Yup, a beggar w/ dignity. :) You might have a point, just because he is a beggar doesn't mean I have to shoot him as one. hmm.

    Gar, didn't notice the yellow line. what does Holding a cup makes a beggar not mean?

    That would be interesting, but I don't know if my PS skills will do...

    I like this a lot, but I do have a weakness for B&W... Thanks for your effort :)
