I don't know what to think of this one. This man seems to be in some sought of deep thought, doesn't he?  Anyways, this is a shot from the streets of Rome.

Looks pretty desperate to me with the rundown backdrop.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin.
Interesante escena urbana! smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Jose, even though I don't know what you mean smile Interesting urban shot I guess smile
Hi Dotun, framing is good but maybe a little sad... I expect more from you !: -)
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Florence, I am not really sure of what you mean but "more from you" I would think more Rome shots or more technically sound shots? Anyways, thanks for your visit always.
Is he using a PDA?
Dotun Ayodeji: no clue, just as my title suggests smile

I love shots like this. Catching people in action, going about their business. Great!
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Ted, glad you like.
Very well catched Dotun. I like the way you catch people in live !
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Roland.
Where do i go from here. Looks like his wife just kicked him out. Very reflective. Belly lice
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Busola.

I think it is a great street capture dotun. Although i love the angle of the wall i think maybe crop of the last windows might bring the view back to the person but maybe you already tried that. lovely shot.
Dotun Ayodeji: Nev, I was think the window lines add to the shot, but I just tried your idea and it works perfectly thanks.
Nice street shot. Seems to be one of your areas of strength
Dotun Ayodeji: thanks Shakara!
Nice shot.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks you.

Florence, i dont understand what you mean by you expect more from him, does a sad picture equal to a bad picture?, But cos am not experienced sha, if this is more about technicality than the aura of the picture, the i stand down, but as a picture it's great. People am i sounding a bit aggressive here, if i am i apologise smile
Dotun Ayodeji: I am with you Mo, not really sure what Florence meant, thanks for visiting.
Does look quite sad, like he's behind bars(in his mind), lovely PP - what building is this, might give a clearer picture of why he's sad!
Dotun Ayodeji: I am really not sure what that building is exactly, all I know is that it is very close to the Vatican, thanks Ade.

Kinda along Busola's line, I sense he's waiting for his wife! smile It's like he's in a different world, alone with his thoughts...while he's waiting.

But what is that building? Hmmm.
his expression is incredible Dotun, well captured!

Funny, but I don't read this as sad at all, not that it would be a bad thing if I did. I have been in a position like this lots of times, waiting for someone, killing time, and I'm sure my mouth has had all sorts of strange expressions. Whatever is the case, the photo is very nice, I really like it.

I don't think he looks sad either, he looks as if he's deeply concentrating on something in his hands, the expression and the tense lower lip says that to me.

I think I'd go with Neal about the crop, although I wouldn't have thought of it without seeing his suggestion. My eye keeps wanting to wander off to the upper left of the picture, led their by the diagonal line.
A good candid. He looks pensive.

Yes, Dotun, this is a wonderful candid capture. I like the man being way off centre.
One of the great things about pics like this is everyone who sees it can have a different feeling about what is in the guy's mind.
I think his glass is full. He is a successful businessman. His kids are happy. He has just spent "quality" time with his lover. Now he has a few spare minutes to himself, and is counting his manifold blessings.
Thank you for this image.
Nice composition and this picture have a story in it ! I like very much !!
I definitely like this. I like your use of DOP as well as focus - plus the framing is on point.
