[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chinatown - Singapore. He was alone at his table. Not waiting for anyone just lost in his thoughts. Like us he was a tourist but alone.
Taken at 1.4 to segregate the subject. Even wide open the lens is quite sharp.

I love the dof you have here...also the b/w/ The one i don't really fond of is the person on the left :D

Your choice of DOF & the spot meter, I feel really makes your subject stand out from this busy street scene Mukesh.
Personally, I find as with most compositions,that any bright object will attract the viewers eye & at times compete for the viewers attention away from the main subject,though the brightness of the poster,the ladies top & the other ladies top & trousers, dont have a strong effect on the eye,I thought if they were to be darkened slighly, the eye would stay focused even more on your main subject,see WS for a comparison.I find your image to be well taken,a good example of street photography,where your main subject has been seperated from the crowd.Hope you dont mind my two cents worth of a critique.

Great DOF and subject sharpness. Nice positioning of him in the scene. Would have waited until the guy in black at the left hand side left the scene, he is a bit disturbing. TFS.
