The choice of black and white over colour is a wise one in this kind of photography as it dramatises the subject. The way you framed this picture shows you do have a photographer's eye. Viewing this picture purely as a work of art (despite the fact of the person in the picture being in a poor social condition) you framed the person very nicely. The play of lines of the pavement adds to the general atmosphere, making it a bit more abstract. The absence of a face adds to that but makes the picture less personal. Very well done, indeed.
Aww thank you very much for the critique was nice coming home for a bad day at college to see it, glad you like my photo
You're quite welcome. I think it is important to tell people what they are doing well (or wrong) in a positive way.
While you're still a far way from being published in major magazines (as a young and unknown talent) I do think that if you really go for it you could become a *very* good photographer at the very least. Fame usually has its own rules. Look at some so-called stars that have no talent and virtually no intelligence (or so it seems). You know who I mean: the blond American hotel chain heir. On the other hand, I happen to know a small-town photographer who has become a successful Hollywood movie director. (His father initiated me in photography btw.) So never stop dreaming and working on your skills!!!
