One of those lucky accidents: I was wandering around town shooting today, and I stopped to capture this alley because I was struck by how the light at the far end was so much warmer than the mouth of the alley where I was standing. I shot a few shots and didn't even notice until I pulled them off the camera later that this man had come out of a doorway and was looking right back at me in the last shot. He makes the composition, IMO.

Lucky accident indeed! Good shot, nice lines, DoF, mood. Only thing I notice is that it might be a little rotated, horizon not quite horizontal. One of those "internet audience" comments, I know Great shot!

Thanks! (And I absolutely don't mind about the rotation comment -- you're right on target, now that I look at it again, so thanks for that as well.)
