This guy was cool. We talked for a few I took about 6 or 7 shots then gave him $20.00usd for his time and he was out! This was a great experience. I learned allot about myself.

congratulations on this, this is amazing. don't listen to the critics, i've learned a lot through some of the great "homeless street photography" on here, and it has changed my perspective quite a bit.

keep up the great work bud

This was an awesome photo I absolutely loved it. 10 all the way. 16 out of 285 is still a wonderful finish in my book.

says a lot to me. shame about the haloing but powerful nonetheless.

sorry to do this but DNMC, I think taking a picture of a homeless person does not qualify this for a street shot. good photo for a different challenge maybe but not street.

marking down one

interesting character. like the processing, eventhough the taco bell cup seems to have been taken to an abnormal hue. the cars grab a bit more attention than they should.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 11:02:03 PM
This is great. His expression, his hair and clothes, the cup, the dirt under his nails, the sky. Focus, clarity, story... Fabulous. 10!

Great shot this. I gave this a 10. ( I hope that you gave the poor bloke a couple of bucks)

Great focus and tone. I like the tilt of the street in the background.

Wow this shot really stands out. The editing is great. Great subject as well.
Not sure I really like the angle of this though and I think I'd prefer to see the cars cropped out.

Well...I like it...I'm going to venture a guess and take it that this gentleman is 'homeless'. I deal with the 'domicile challenged' people on an almost daily basis - this guy looks like quite a character. I'm wondering? did you get him to pose for the shot or was it spur-of-the-moment? If posed - the Taco Bell cup (imho) would have been best out of the shot. If not posed - then, I guess a tighter crop might (?) have been better - but probably not. I think you've probably edited it the best possible. Great job!
