He is a forture teller I met in china town, Kuala Lumpur. It was about 7am when I past by this street and he was just get ready for his business. He looks uncertain, which I think its quite a contrast to his career.

This is a wonderful shot shih wei, i feel that it will benefit from an even tighter crop removing the pillar on the right and the floor. That would put emphasis on the play between the horizontal blinds against the vertical plankings of the wall, and focus more on the fortune teller. Plse see Workshop

I agree with Steely on the cropping. Perhaps sharpen the face of the fortune teller a bit. Great contrast between the wall, the blinds and the white shirt.

Trés belle scène de vie. Les couleurs et la composition sont trés sympas. Peut être que s'assoir avec un rideau rose en fond, aide à voir la vie de la même couleur ?

The red/pinkish blinds behind the chair and the fortune teller staring at the chair make me feel as if I'm walking right up to the chair to have my future read. I do not find the pillar distracting at all, I did not even pay attention to it until I read Steely's comment.
It's a very nice shot.
