I saw this possibly homeless and disturbed man in Hyde Park and couldn't resist taking photos of his unique expressions. I shot many frames of him and each frame has different expression.
I named him Michelangelo because a friend of mine thought that he looked like jumped out of a Michelangelo's painting.
That day was extremely cold by the way. The white spots that you see in the air are snow flakes.
Somehow I can not respond to critiques. Sorry about that.

Bit of a cruel shot, but definitely a Michelangelo lookalike.
Remains to be seen who is more insane, him or the Wall Street system.
Compositionwise perfect, technically I would have preferred a less telephoto aproach.

Hello ahmet. Well done. A remarkable photograph. The man looks respectable. No one suspects that he is homeless. You decided to color. B&w would also be possible. I like the photo very well. Regards, Wolfgang.

You do know how to frame and compose this so exactly to fit into the 2 columns and with the light just falling into place nicely to get no dark shadows where the man matters most. Well the shadow of curve on the wall is just perfect.
If you can get the man's legs to be put this left side, it will be bravo! He looks drunk :)
Greetings from Borneo
