Nice candid shot - well spotted!

I felt that the dark doors on the left attracted too much attention, so I've made you a mod in which I cropped them out. Looking at it, I might have given it a slight rotation as well before I cropped it, but I'm sure you can see what I mean anyway.

Yeah Conrad. I agree 100% with you. It does look better with the doors cropped out

There are two important peices of information in this image, the man and the pub sign, as presented here neither has enough presence.

I just think you need to get in closer with candids like this. Imagine a wildlife shot where the subject was as small as the guy in this shot.

Appreciate the comments, however I only had a 50mm lens and I saw this guy come out at the corner of my eye so I only had a second to catch him lighting up as that was the "pose" I wanted. To get closer to him would have meant missing the shot.

Excellent candid shot - you've caught his pose perfectly.
Cropping out the black door has improved it too.
