Is this for real or staged? I have absolutely no idea why, but I get a feeling this photo is staged. Good shot nonetheless.

finally, honesty

the image is quite dark but i think the goes well with the surroundings. you have certainly captured this scene very well, especially the expression in the mans eyes. i think it conveys a sence of solitude in a city full of people- i really like this image, it makes me think. well done

nice pic

Humorous shot. :) Try curve control to better the contrast next time? And perhaps lower the camera a little for straight verticals and stronger impact. :)

So sad. so so sad...

why lie indeed, a fantastic photo with lots of humour.

Not a bad shot - quite dark and gloomy, but that's kind of appropriate.

Very nice. Love these signs, I always throw some change. Wonderful expression and composition.

Tee hee. . .that is funny. And it does in fact say City Life to me. Great job!

Nice take on City Life! I wonder what his story is. Would be interesting to find out, huh? Nice clean clear crip image. Love it in black and white.

Great subject!
01/06/2006 07:32:54 PM
Both funny and sad. Nice shot

old gag, shot too similar in style to numerous others in this contest to be an interesting or unique take on 'city life.'
01/06/2006 04:34:17 PM
Fine, compassionate portrait, would like to see more of the 'city' in the context of this challenge
01/06/2006 02:35:15 PM
Nice catch, great expression. Makes me thirsty.
01/06/2006 01:33:49 PM
lol, nice job... it's so true eh?
01/06/2006 05:55:16 AM
Too honest but I'd donate. 8

LOve it!!!!!
01/05/2006 03:04:34 PM
very grainy and a bit out of focus... could use some work with contrast and levels. however, i love his expression and its a great capture of city life, the black and white works well
01/05/2006 08:48:37 AM
classic capture!
01/05/2006 08:47:43 AM
I've seen this myself, in another city. Well shot, except it sorta' bugs me that you cut off his one foot.
01/04/2006 09:47:04 PM
don't tell me that you actually saw someone with this sign. because that's unbelievable
01/04/2006 08:55:02 PM
Composition is ok. The choice of subject matter is ok. The image quality is ok. Could have been a little more creative. - 5

01/04/2006 01:12:53 PM
great. 8

I think some more/different post processing would improve this photo, but I love your choice of subject and composition. Good find, and very brave of you. Very suitable for this challenge. 8
