• The bench sloping off on the left is annoying, but I think that's just the way it is - the right side of the photo is perfectly straight. - Photocritic.org

    Me encantaaaaa!! Ya te lo dije! =) Es genial, un hombre contemporáneo delante de, pareciera, una figurita de la época colonial. Maravillosa!

    I can't believe I didn't notice this before. Great capture! Can I ask, is this posed? Or is this candid? And did you ask his permission beforehand? These are all things I wonder with street photography.

    This wasn't posed, it's 100% street candid... I didn't ask for permission... I never do, actually! xD

    Muy interesante, aunque creo que si le aplicas un mayor contraste resultará mucho más atractiva.

    When I look at this photo, it makes me think of... a time gone by, where people still decided they have time to sit and enjoy life, whatever pace it runs at.

    I think this photo is about... catching a slice of life as it goes by, showing that people still are able to check out of busy life, even in a busy city.

    Technically... this photograph goes from strength to strength. The black and white works well, I'm loving the film grain in the background, and the focusing and DOF is spot-on.

    What I like about this photo... is that it seems so natural - the people strolling in the background, the flag lazily flowing in the wind, the retro-feel of it (I can't tell whether it's actually an old photo or a modern photo taken on classic film stock), and the concentration with which the guy in the foreground is reading the paper. Good, good stuff.

    If I were to improve or change anything, I would... see if there was any way to straighten the bench a little, although I believe it might be the bench that's tapering off down and to the left. It's a nit-pick, however - I love this photo, and while it isn't much of a learning experience to hear this: I'd keep it exactly the way it is. Good work.

    Does it have the X-factor? Overall... I think it's bloody awesome. It wouldn't be out of place as a photo on the wall in a retro/modern mansion. It's fab.

    Finally, if you fancy it, why not add this photo to the www.flickr.com/groups/critique-by-photocritic Flickr pool? It'll help people find other photo critiques, and it makes you part of a hyper-exclusive club, too!

    This is a Photocritic photo critique. If you want one, too, check out my photo critiques page. Also, why not make Flickr a better place for photographers by doing photo critiques yourself, too? Go on, you know you want to...
