Feel free to critique the ever-loving poop out of this, as usual. Thanks for looking.

I like the circular geometry of the shot. It's like a spiral. Cool!

Thanks, damon. I'm sitting in the very same position right now, I only have my 50mm lens on my 7D, so it's more like an 85. I'd look a little too odd to the guy sitting behind me if I got up and stuck my butt in his face to take this shot, but if he moves, maybe I'll frame better :).

If the newspaper lady comes back, that is.

Not sure what you are trying to convey here -- certainly have a person reading a newspaper, but that's all I get out of it. There is also some attention drawn by the card in the bottom left due to the focus, but unclear what that might add to the shot.

I keep trying to read the title of that book or card propped up.
On my laptop, I can't quite read it.

It's a nice moment. I'd definitely burn in the newspaper and the card.
