A Newspaper Vendor taking an Afternoon Siesta, i found the reflections of the heritage buildings of South Mumbai make it an interesting scene, V2 is the Original unedited version, V1 is a crop with mono conversion as an alternative comp.

Exif: - Manual Exposure, 1/350, f/4.0, Focal Length 31mm.

Mono conversion was done using Silver Efx pro, Antique Plate effect, i then increased the settings for Structure, contrast and reduced brightness..which has given it a grainy effect...not too sure if it works though have mixed thoughts here but i thought id try some different treatments...

Camera:Canon EOS 7D
Lens:Tamron 18-200mm Check out Totally Tamron!
Recording media:RAW (digital)

This is a cracking image. When you see V2 and see where the image has originated from it shows the perception, foresight and skill you have.

It's cool - I often apply the antique effect in silver effects pro but I can never go through with it so kudos there. The great thing about the effect is how it centralises your focus!

Initially I didn't see the door and only the building behind. So I was pleasantly surprised when I realised it was a reflection - great spot!

The reflection really adds to the main subject!

I don't think it needs quite the amount of 'structure' and 'grain' in the photo but either way still looks good. Well done.

I suppose it's what you want to convey really - I think this is kind of evocative of an old turn of the century shot from the Raj, and the treatment evokes that well, but the subject matter is more modern and so it's slightly jarring because of that. V3 is better i think for this reason

All quite good and interesting. Whilst I appreciate the retro old look, we sometimes under estimate our forebears. Much Victorian imagery was actually sharper than many of us manage these days. So, I prefer v2 - which is very good modern social comment.

Not to degrade the others - both good in there way.
