For me it's hard to figure out what might be on the guys mind. Is he thinking "you want to take my photo? Sure, go ahead,". lol
Had you moved a few steps to the right we would simply see a man with a cigarette in a checkered shirt with hands in the pockets of camouflage trousers. Instead we have an amputated man on the left and I think he adds stability to the scene. His vertical lines play well with the vertical lines in photo being the main subject, the wall edge and freezer doors in background.   Posted: 01/09/2022 19:30:11

Gloria, this image is kind of static. The "posing" man is not really engaged in the event of photography, he is just there and with a body language implying boredom, and actually he is looking at you. The photographer is very amputated and creates tension at this side of the frame. The cleaning devices in the back are distracting. Overall, it is a street scene. It is sharp, and the B&W interpretation suits it.   Posted: 01/10/2022 15:58:30

The photographer and his model photographed, a comfortable situation: the model is directed by the original photographer. The latter brings some depth to the photo and also a story. For me the image is a bit too gray, none really black and none really white.   Posted: 01/14/2022 07:14:05
