Great work here...! Lovely mood...! I'd have tried to add a broken glass effect on the windows and to darken the overall picture to strengthen the mood...! +1

What Hagen said*! also...would be better to lower the contrast of the guy and cart ,a bit, for better integration.

Thanks all. Updated the homeless guy & made him smaller. I saw that as I was creating this last night, but since I was falling asleep it looked okay!

I still think you should change the "H" to a "D" or an "N" =0)
TheShaman TheShaman
now he looks "normal". Nice job MW

@ Hagen & BC: Darkened just a bit overall, reduced contrast on cart guy & busted a little glass. Thanks for all the suggestions, it's become much better from everyone's help.
Hagen Hagen
Very consistent update...! Lot better in my opinion...! Well done mate...!
