I saw him coming along the walkway. As I approached him, I took aim with my camera. He stopped. I smiled. He very patiently stood there for a minute or two, allowing me to take 5-6 snaps of his. We smiled. He continued his journey.

Great story, and what a great end result to your click and shoot on the street. I love it when that happens. This is a very striking portrait. Congratulations on 4th place.

i think the burning around the head and hand are the only thing that keep this image back from the next level... the image itself is so good... gritty and real... the extra processing draws too much attention to itself and takes away from the documentary feel. Awesome stuff though, congrats on the HM

Congratulations on HM! I like the crop & composition but looks slightly over processed for my taste.

not crazy about the vignetting and haloing, but otherwise a wonderful portrait.

I feel you have "burned in" too heavy around the subjects head.

Amazing contrast, lighting, subject, composition, you name it.
Everything in this picture is perfect.
The ribbon would be very deserved.
