    If I recall correctly, this man was, just as I, observing the people walking in front of us in the busy street.
    I personally feel this image misses something, but I'm not sure what. Perhaps the image is just boring. I used the Burn tool in photoshop a bit to make him stand out more. Besides that I added some contrast in DPP.

    Critique is welcome.

    I like the shot a lot. The contrast is nice. The only thing that is bothering me about it is the overexposed part in the upper right of the photo. My eye keeps going over to that white area.

    I really like it. It makes me want to know what he is doing and why, lol. He really does pop out without being oddly out of place. Good job :)

    I like the picture. It makes you think. Good DOF. Maybe a little more emphasis on the man somehow would've helped.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
    I tried to add some emphasis to the man already by darkening the rest of the photo... I don't really know what more to add. :blushing:

    My eye goes right to him, I dont think you need to do more. You dont want it to look unnatural
