Sorry if you found this to be a negative comment but I only told it how I saw it.

I gave this a 7 during the challenge. I loved the throwback feel to it. The man with the cigar really pulls you in. And there is something about his hand that is... different? Anyway, nice shot!

Congrats on a fine shot - wish this had made it a few notches higher in the ranks though, as it certainly deserved to.

This has a wonderful retro feel to it.
I'm thinking this was a genuine candid moment caught due to the other people visible in the background, making this even more of an outstanding shot.
One of the first of the small details that caught my eye was his hand gesture - gotta' love that one!

This is a time and a place, and all the signs are pointing to it. Never have I so enjoyed being given the finger. 10

Really nice capture. The sepia tone isn't really working for me, but then it's also subtle enough to avoid ruining my otherwise high opinion of the photo. Good stuff.

I love the old dime feel this has, it would be nice to see more details in his face through the smoke but this is a GREAT candid!

Wonderful! The man sitting there looks like he's from the early 1900's Black and white is perfect for this!
