Here we have a very interesting and well done study to fit the waiting theme. The black and white rendition gives it that old time flavor. The sign above adds to the composition and the simplicity of the scene speak of a small town. The model or subject is in a natural pose, hands in pocket and head turned. We have all been here.
The added touch of including the model's reflection gives this image the final touch. It is a picture that is easy to look at and we spend a little time observing the tracks, platform and rooflines to determine the answer to why the tilt. Straight lines across a picture create a very fixed balance which removes all tension from a composition. All these lines are starting high on the right and ending low on the left. It is these diagonal lines which add the subtle touch of the non descript concept of waiting. This is a great composition and unto my favorites..... dan

Nice. Very crisp and it totaly conveys the theme. Some thoughts: the fence at the right is a little distracting (but you probably didn't crop it out so you wouldnt loose the subject's reflection in the window though)
