    Splendid and quite made up, excellent photograph!

  • David H-W on 20.04.2010 @ 11:23

    Well composed sir with some great contrast! And well chosen to 'letterbox' crop it.

  • Marie on 20.04.2010 @ 11:34

    magnifique noir et blanc, pour une jolie scène.

  • Phodyssey on 20.04.2010 @ 11:55

    L'espression est splendide, mais je prefere par dessus tout le choix du cadrage.

    black & white = art

  • JJ on 20.04.2010 @ 12:23

    Nicely composed and wonderfully contrasts to me he does look like he is having a bad day

  • Ben on 20.04.2010 @ 13:13

    Smart capture. He looks very concerned.

  • Otto K. on 20.04.2010 @ 16:56

    is he pasted in there? very cool image.

  • PhotoGeek on 20.04.2010 @ 17:32

    Excellent capture! I'm once again jealous of your skill. Amazing B&W work.

  • Charles Dastodd on 20.04.2010 @ 22:04

    terrific capture! i really like the way the man stands out from the surroundings in terms of sharpness and focus. nicely executed :)

  • Mark Johnson on 20.04.2010 @ 23:25

    It does a great job of portraying somebody who does not seem to be having a very good day.

  • george@minimalistics on 21.04.2010 @ 04:56

    I know just how he feels...there's a wonderful empathy expressed in your photograph.

  • hoveeto on 21.04.2010 @ 07:38

    very nice street photography.

  • crash on 21.04.2010 @ 07:39

    Very thought provoking image.

  • Michelle on 21.04.2010 @ 11:31

    Excellent street capture..completely got the moment!

  • Ryan Rahn on 21.04.2010 @ 11:38

    Great use of depth of field to isolate the subject...the background bokeh is amazing too! I love the composition with the pillar on the left too.

  • kyungmee on 22.04.2010 @ 00:20

    I love this image! Great capture and love it in BW!!

  • minimodi on 22.04.2010 @ 01:31

    hehe, great title - it really looks that way! and i like the cinemascope.

  • bluechameleon on 22.04.2010 @ 08:05

    Excellent shot and so cinematic. I like the body language and tension of the man. Your shallow depth of field works superbly!

  • hoi on 22.04.2010 @ 11:08

    Whenever my friend Brian and I see a guy doing this we always assume he's trying to "buy/sell" stock in front of people in order to impress them. It makes us laugh. Great shot!

  • Aurore on 22.04.2010 @ 16:18

    Nice scene, a little bit of drama in a good compo :)

  • fabrizio on 23.04.2010 @ 02:46

    spetacular tones and delicate background, awesome perspective... grat shot

  • Csaba/EyeVision on 23.04.2010 @ 04:04

    Great candid shot.

  • don on 23.04.2010 @ 10:36

    I think his cell phone is just about dead! Nice street shot.

  • Antoine on 23.04.2010 @ 11:55

    Superb shot and your monochrome is very good.

  • Tolga on 23.04.2010 @ 13:24

    Great Moment :).

  • yiannis krikis on 24.04.2010 @ 01:26

    I like the framing, the bokeh, and the man's expression

  • Mungo Fetch on 24.04.2010 @ 05:18

    "It's been a bad day / Please don't take a picture / It's been a bad day / Please" R.E.M. Good shot!

  • SD (Aspherical) on 25.04.2010 @ 00:50

    Great candid. I think he needs a fat chronic blunt!

  • joshi daniel on 28.04.2010 @ 05:41

    nice timing and a story telling image!

  • shamanah on 30.04.2010 @ 19:40

    woah!!!!!! great capture:-D

  • mooch on 17.05.2010 @ 18:19

    LOVE THIS!

    It has a reportage feel --> the black & white processing is perfect --> there's a slight grain which just gives the image a "I want to touch this" texture --> and the framing is absolutely perfect.

    Bosh!
