This is one of my favourite street captures (by me, surf the web, there're plenty out there that are better).

Aside from a feeling of sadness, a man alone, at the end of his tether and needing help...

This is so powerful, with such quality, that it feels like a still from a film.

Absolutely brilliant, on so many levels
Samarth: thank you very much!
I agree it has a filmic quality, well shot.
Samarth: thanks nigel...

Really nice capture, Sam. Cool toning.

I remember almost commenting on this one but holding back for some reason. I'm feeling your capture (except for the framing, could've given the fellow more space, zoomed out a bit) but the processing... I'm a bit mixed about it... sure it works on a 'relating to the emotion of the subject' level but as an aesthetic choice I find it to be stronger in B&W.

Just my two cents/penny.
Samarth: did try b/w but it came out too flat... cyan offered a little more range to give it depth...
