I like the way you got the guy at the apex of the shadow triangle. As Pop pointed out, the wide angle lens made this more than a humdrum picture of a guy on a street.
There were two things that worked together to produce this image (which prevented it from being another street candid of an old person).
I had recently read the Antarctic posts on here that Michael had written (I read a lot of the articles on here because I often find tidbits of shooting inspiration in old LF reviews and trip write ups) that mentioned how Michael liked to shoot animals in their interaction with the landscape as opposed to portraits. I decided to follow this lead and apply it to the scene I saw in Montreal.
I had also just purchased a new 15mm lens that I wanted to get used to, so I was walking around the city with it on my camera (and my 50mm in my pocket). I saw the scene and decided to leave the 15mm on and capture more of the environment since the lighting, angles and scene interested me.
Just a little background for anyone interested.
I agree that a crop to remove some of the right side of the image would clean things up a bit.
I will also experiment with your suggestion John.
