A wonderful piece of photo journalism, quite a brave shot (I've never got the nerve to actually take shots of people in the street!). I really like the gentleman's bright colours against the dull grey of the pavement - I get the feeling you've 'selected' him and desaturated his surroundings, which is a brilliant way to keep our eyes on your subject. I also feel you've slightly blurred the scene (but I may be wrong on that) - this also makes us really look at your subject.
I think a small clockwise rotation would improve the image, as he is on a bit of a tilt (although he could be sat on a hill). I am also wondering if cropping off the bottom would improve the image, removing the 'empty' space (but I think that is more of a personal thing).
I shall look forward to reading other people's critiques.
Good isn't it?
Looking at this, I'd say that he also knitted the jumper that he's wearing.
As Pamela has said, whatever you've done to make him stand out, it seems to have worked.
The image does need straightening slightly though and I've uploaded a mod. in which I've done so.
I've also cropped it. Not because I think that there's anything wrong with it as it is (my views on the "rules" of composition are widely known!) but to see how an alternative might look.
I also used the shadows/highlights tool very gently and finally sharpened it.
Hope this helps.
This is a really good shot.
I agree that its tilted, and its visible when you use the verticals behind him as a guide.
I like the colour popping, but I think you could de saturate the main subject a little.
I would crop tighter to place him on a third, and also fill in that access shore in the foreground.
The image overall can be lightened a little, - this also helps to reduce contrast on the subject, which is a little hight.
Ive loaded a mod to show what I mean, - but well done for getting the shot in the first place.
