The man is the main focus point but when I sharpened the image, the texture of the pillar was made much more prominent.

Nice perspective, it looks like the far side pillar is in focus. Why not the man?

Great image for this challenge. Wish the bin wasn't there (but it's not too bad). Work well in b/w. Should score well.

I like the idea and composition. The guy is just a bit on the blurry side.

I like the composition, the black and white and grainy feel really fit the subject well.

I like the composition and contrast of the simple, yet to-the-point image.
