Very nice image. I think the look and mood of the young man captures this theme. I especially like that he is walking towards the camera where almost everyone else in the background is walking the other way - this emphasizes the "stranger" effect. Nominated.

I like everything about this image. It has a 1970s feel about it and clearly shows the young man is not part of the crowd and may be a stranger in the town. The muted color is perfect for this shot. Nice job.

Reminds me of Bob Dylan in the 1960s. Very well seen and captured!

With kind regards,
