|I liked this shot too, I can't help to wonder what would of happen in Black and White. I also think the background is a bit distracting, and within composure, he is standing just a little bit crooked, and I know it doesn't seem like much, but it shapes the overall image into a little bit of an awkward balance. Still a good shot, and I like it a lot.
Subtract the big red/blue thing behind him that I can't even tell what it is, and center up his face with a little depth in the streets behind him, maybe turn to black and white, and boom this is a top 3 entry. However, I must say that I am hardly in expert in the field of street photography, but I remember one guy whos name was I think Librodo, and that dude was excellent with these kind of shots, I've seen others I just don't remember their names right off.
