One of many random photos taken on a photowalk today that I thought I should share. I know I've caught the edge of someone's shoulder walking out of the frame (bottom right). The vignetting isn't artificial - that's actual light falloff! Other than resizing, no post-processing.

1/250 @ f/2.8, 200mm, ISO 360.

EDIT - changed source of Img.

I think you've got an interesting subject. It's "high-potential" photograph I think. The shoulder and the guy in the background distract from the interesting character who appears to be staring right into the lens. I think if you crop down to isolate the character a little more and maybe artificially blur the background a little bit more as well, I think it'd be a very interesting shot. Maybe an spooky B&W effect or someting. I can't put my finger on it but some well-placed pp would do this picture real well.

great shot. i would've got an alternate route and left the man on the floor some color. cliche, maybe- but in this case it places all of the focus on him as there are plenty of things going on in the shot.
