    Personally I feel the subject was interesting enough without all the clutter of the store behind him. A tight crop would've been nice, but really great shot, and capture of this guy in a private (sad?) moment.

    I agree with RMThompson, although your title did it for me.. an old man in old cloths sitting in front of a fashion store, I love it.. great shot!

    great image... but i agree with RMThompson about a tighter crop so that the old man gets the entire attention ...or maybe a slight desaturation of the background..but great shot anyway :)

    Very cool shot! I never see anything as iconic (or possible ironic?) as this when I'm out and about (and have a camera ready :)).

    I agree with the previous comments, I'd crop just above the head and to the efge of the glass left of the subject, its a cool shot and I personally like the pp, just a different crop for me
