this is a great image! Composition is great but i have to ask with such a small file, where is the focus point?

Cool shot. That guy is super creepy. I think he works really well with the title. This reminds me of that Doors song "People are Strange".

I think that this is an absolutely great photo, brilliant! Unlike the earlier comments i think that that the composition is perfect, with the focus of he shot clearly being the homesless man. I personally think that this is a very sad photo, with the subject creating a sense of sorrow as opposed to being scary! Sad stuff imho.
Could be worth of a conversion to b & w?

Hey guys, thank you for your comments.
I took this while on vacation in Montreal, Canada and as you can see it was absolutely pouring at the time. My friends and I were running down the street and I saw this shot and immediately found cover so I could pull my camera out. I tried to stay in an area that wasn't being hit so hard by the rain so I could take the shot. I didn't want that man getting angry with me for taking a photo of him without asking so I quickly ducked to try and get a better angle and snapped a shot. Not to mention my friends were already rushing me cause they didn't want to be in the rain.
If I could take this shot again I would compose it differently; I would have liked to get just a little closer to the homeless man.
Longside: I tried a b&w conversion, preferred the color version.
Oh, and people are most definitely strange.
