This got my top vote of the challenge, probably not everyone's definition of a candid but I really liked the processing and the overall feel of the image. I think it would have scored higher overall if it fit the challenge better.

Wow, top-notch use of lo-fi. Would make an excellent big print, maybe with the same tones but without the filter showing on the sky.

My pick for the top, follows all the technical conventions effortlessly and with transparence yet transcends to the realm of artistry that is a delight to engage within. A golden egg ;)

A nice damp mood to this. I like it.

Somehow this seems quite appropriate for the challenge. Not a "candid portrait" per se (we go back to my "it's sorta cheating to shoot the backs of people" thing) but to "Capture a portrait of a person (or people) in their natural element without their knowledge" - well that's what you've got here! Did you shoot through a window or add texture or both?

The texture added is a major distraction for me. I know it has become "legal", but just because you can add elements does not mean you should.
