I had to visit Barcelona for work, got sick while there but wandered out camera in hand a little bit. While walking behind the Cathedral I saw this old man walking around. I guess he was on a daily walk, he seemed to be having a good time and I snapped a few shots of him.

It was a really nice day for street photography and the air was filled with music from buskers playing classical spanish guitar. It was really hard picking what photo to submit but I ended up deciding on this one.

Post processing: crop, rotate, unsharp mask, curves and slight desaturation

Greetings From Critique Club

First Impression
You've definitely captured a nice scene which fits the genre well. You've without a doubt fit the challenge and scored well. I think you've done well with this low saturation scene.

Composition:
Very well done on the composition. I do have a minor nitpick with the lamps or whatever they are at the top of the scene on the back wall. They are a bit distracting to my eye. Not so much as wanting to change the crop to compensate, but since this was an advanced editing challenge, I might have cloned them out. However, I wouldn't disagree with your call not to.

Technicals
I can't find any flaw in your technicals. Lighting, exposure, focus, DoF are all well selected and managed.

Congrats on a nice score on a tough challenge.

This is great. The guy walking away makes this more dramatic in my opinion. I love the old old architecture around him, and the pigeons also add the perfect "street photography" touch. This is my new favorite one so far :)
