I really didnt want to title this (or really any other image - i thought a picture was 1000 words) , but was afraid that some people might not get it.

This is really not my style in terms of subject, but the soft light and the sillouettes were a must shoot. I wish it was some guy playing a guitar, or someone just sitting having a cigarette, oh well

I think this is a very good capture. I love how the people who look like the career-set are in a silhouette and then the guy is lit by the sun. It's interesting that the can is there too. This is one of those "make you think" kinds of photos and maybe also make you appreciate what you have in your own life.

I would love to see this in B & W. It's a strong PJ shot.

The composition is a little loose - I wonder how this might look if it were cropped a bit?

Maybe if you'd gotten closer or cropped this image it would be better.
I like how he is isolated from the crowd.

The silhouette's are great, but I wonder if cropping it from the end of the floor (where you see the street in the back) would make it more dramatic.
