    I like it anyway.
    The car is a bit disturbing but the rest is great.

    Don't know what the intended result was, but I sure do like this one. Love the silhouette and focus. Very nice.

    Thanks everyone, I guess what I had in mind was a more timeless, European feel, like he was sitting in front of the Seine in the centre of Paris with a battered old attaché case waiting for George Smiley to turn up.

    Perhaps that was a bit hopeful on a downtown Toronto street :)

    It definitely has a vintage look to it. And even if Toronto is not Paris, the result is absolutely great.

    Well, you might think that it didn't work out the way you intended, but the result is excellent. It looks like fine-Art photography. :-)

    lovely! Reminds me slightly of Jack Spencer's image "World Watcher". I'll email you the jpeg. :)

    that's a fine shot - if only it was a classic car passing it would be perfect!

    Simple and clean. You can just stare at it and wonder what he was thinking about.

    PS: Toronto is not so very different from a european city as you think.

    Well, I absolutely love it. The dark silhouette, deep tones and grainy archival quality is very striking.

    I'm not sure that the car in the background contributes to the lonely mood, but otherwise a wonderful shot! The grain and the light and shadows really make this for me. (And the mood, of course).
