A homeless man that I watched roaming around a City Parks and Recreation Event, "Touch-a-Truck." I ended up getting about 10 shots of him...hope I chose the best one for the challenge! His face seems to share a million tales.

Elizabeth, this is wonderful! I love how you photgraphed and processed this -- but I love the way you have captured all those millions of tales in his eyes and face. Beautiful photography for sure!

over-contrast/curves which also lead to bad jpg compression. think it had the potential to be an 8 with good pp, 5

Sharpness, character, good composition. The light is a little flat, and the background could just be a touch softer to be perfect.

Great DOF, love the expression and the sharpness and clarity on his face. Really like the contrast between the hat shirt and background. My only beef is that strange difference in color tone at the top of his head, it looks like it may have been dodged a bit and you forgot to finish the top of the head. Other than that, a great shot.

A great, momentary capture of personality. Fantastic play of colours, textures and paterns. Perfect exposure and composition. In other words, I absolutely love this image. Bravo!

I would've scored this a higher if it weren't overly processed.

That is some stylish beard for a homeless man. The detail here is superb and the funky background matches with your subject.
