Good timing clicking, just as he glanced at you, and a good result (one for the hunt?). The long lens and foliage make it look as though you're some papperazzi snooping on him :-)

very nice composition here, the guy is nicely squeezed between the car and leaves. somehow his face appears to be a bit grayish, the rest is good, nice work Mark

Nice portrait at work. The plant can seem to pe foreign here but I like the effect. Good light and colors. Nice eyecontact.

Great shot. The framing with the plant and the cab is spot on. Colors are great, and the cigarette hanging from his mouth just tops it off. Well done.

How much you paid him to bring the vehicle over and to pose a photo like this?
Just kidding :D

this one caught my eye, good compo and nice bright colours. one little thing: why does his face look less in focus than the taxi? is it a trick of the light? is it just me? otherwise tasty.

Very nice Mark. As the others mentioned, you timed this well and caught the guy looking at you. I think the plant's position is a little funny, it looks like you're peering over it spying on him.

oooh.. the Trekearth syndrom starts to strike after 30 or 40 images uploaded...
It's something that pushes any photographer towards tighter portraits sooner or later with any context sweeped beyond the frame.
I can see here the start of the syndrom. Just resist, even though portraits bring more point than deserved.
I'm sorry to say it's a mundane photo... oversharpened and a bit dark. I'll pass my turn on this one. One point for the taxi light you included.
