I still don't think I've got that special combination of sharpness and glow quite right. I blame my anti-aliasing filter ;-)

I'd like a bit more room around his feet but lost some of my frame through straightening.

What's cool about this is that both subjects work together in the context yet are obviously separate individuals - if you know what I mean. The story is here. Congratulations on the ribbon.

I love this shot and must say that I did ponder if it wasn't John's. There are a few elements though quite different, the main character is a polished type and so is your processing. I"ll place it in my favorites.
Just saw these French guys caught by John, probably suffering from mal de vivre and malaise from the raised taxes probably Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1053070.jpg. The never heard of stiff upper lip.

Terrific! A little mellower in the tonalities, but otherwise very jagarish moment.

Very "jagar" like, could be, lol. Great tones and scene; one of my top picks. (voted earlier)

Classic Jagar

Awesome candid. There's just something interesting about the old man browsing the market by himself. One of my favorites in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very much Jager-ish! Lovely old school feel, nice tonal range, and wonderfu characters populating the space.

Beautiful shot. It's as good as any vintage Life magazine image. It's photo journalism at it's best.

Very nicely done, one of my favorites in this challenge. This is my guess as Jagar's entry.

02/14/2013 09:33:36 AM
Jagar?
(This means this photo is too awesome)

Extremely Jagar-esque. Very nicely done.

looks like jagar's PP.

Jagar? Difficult light
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 02:33:54 PM
I'm guessing he's not liking the options :-)
