Not a comment but proposed title. I don't normally do street photography but saw this chap at St Pancras Station, London earlier this year and thought it looked better in B&W C&C appreciated

Much goodness here.

Lots of lines (might need a touch of help to straighten verticals) and repetition, a variety of tonal values and a message that is very deliverable. Can't ask for a whole lot more. Nice job.

Processing is going to be a matter of taste & style. I might consider a bit of a crop to take out the bright reflections @ top of frame that competes/draws away from the subject. Took a stab at straighten/crop for perspective / illustration.

Nice work Niall.
A worthy scene with great lines, diagonals and the subject is well-positioned to continue to make a statement in the frame and how he is looking into the scene.
Excellent choice for BW and the conversion looks very good.

Wonderful image, lines etc. as Kent and Scott note. I enjoy the evocative aspect: exactly what is he waiting for? Why is he waiting, etc.?

A variation re-work...I tried, with little success, to recover detail from blocked up highlights. I think the ultimate result is a slight darkening, still lacking detail. Anyway, some sharpening, straightening, crop, touch of tone...and slight mid-tone contrast bump at end.

Again, great image Niall, thanks for sharing!

Regards,

Bob

I think this needs the deeper shadows.
