This is a wonderful candid. The colours, expression and depth of field are fantastic.

I just realized I have never left a comment on this out-standing image. Excellent candid study. Love the catch lights in his eyes and the pp work you have done here.

verry strong image, I like this one alot, the expression of the guy is what makes it. Like he's having an argue with the guy above!

great capture...very nice...the clarity is great..I see these homeless people all the time, and I try talking to them , just to see what goes through their head, and I realized that they are very simple minded people who trade in a set of circumstances for another.

Very impressively emotive. I like it a lot!

Impressive and very penetrating with these flitting feelings of expectation and disappointment. Congratulations on your top twenty finish.

Just waiting for a couple DQ's above you to make my prediction come true. ;-) Still a good finish!

The fact that his hand position can speak and say, "ahh, he's feeling for rain", make this photo as strong, IMO, as any photo where you can see rain or raindrops. Also. the ground is wet :)

he has a paintery feel. I know thats not a word but you get my meaning, yes? D&B? He is so set apart from his background it looks like 2 images stuck together. Love the lighting. Crop, composition hues are well done. 8

very nice, I think it looks a bit over processed though... neat image? seems plasticy (is that a word?) an excellent capture, and one of my favorites. I would like to see it grainy and gritty though, makes more sence in my mind.

My only beef is, I wish the cars in the back ground were more blured, other wise great photo. 9

Great catch! The subject is very interesting and caught in a perfect, candid pose. Very nicely framed & focused.

I like the shot, but it has a plastic appearance, like too much neat image or something 6

Great capture - very relative and emotive.

As a street portrait I like this very much. The pose works absolutely to bring it into the challenge (not suggesting it's a posed shot, but you know what I mean). The processing and depth of field is exemplary, exposure and tonality, escpecially in that green shirt, marvellouslly clear.

Convincing subject. Like the colors and post editing as well.

Wow! Amazing contrast of color and so well framed. I love how well you captured the details of his expression amid the backdrop of the traffic.

Really good candid portrait, and a very clever incorporation of 'Rain' ... the look of uneasiness on his face speaks volumes about how the rain is going to affect him. A well conceived & executed image. 8

Theres something off in this photo, looks like too much of a magenta shift. Would have been a great shot if this wasnt the case.

Nice composition and framing of subject. Funny to see that big Lincoln in the background. 7

I love the seriousness, the old clothes, the dirty look of his hands and the sat. Good Luck!! 10

I love the dark urban filter. The light and reflection behind hinm is really good, not to mention the light on his cheekbones and arm. Really really nice city shot. I might crop just to the left of the light reflection to eliminate that red sign but maybe that was your intention. EIther way, it is really a great shot.
