    Uitstekend! Would have preferred the man a little more to the right, though ...

    Movie clip

    very nice and the colours work well.

    I would have preferred it without the van but you cannot stop traffic for the shot, cropping it as such will make it too narrow so it is either a clone job or leave it in.

    It looks like something out of a movie clip though!

    Too much space behind him, not enough space in front of him. Still an awesome capture of a cool character!

    Thank you all for your C&C. As you can say in street photography, shoot it or leave it, I only had this chance to take this shot, and this was the result. I tweaked the colors a little to my taste too.

    I love it! Whenever you see a man in an orange suit, don't be shy, take his photo! And this image was made for turning the volume up on the color. Nice work! Having him at the forefront of the photo (where he belongs) with daily life in the background - great composition.

    I agree. In this case, I like him where he is, bold and in the lead, with life small and trailing behind him.
