you have penchant for shooting your subjects against really busy backgrounds to the point they almost disappear. While usually this would not be good you have somehow made not just the smoker the subject but the entire frame the subject which seems to be making a very strong statement about smoking, Some nice imagery

That is the advantage of very wide lens and taking photos from close distance. Its steep perspective is separating your subject from the environment _ background but keeping both in your frame _ story and feeling of "intimacy". Just opposite of taking Street photography with some long lens which is “gluing” subject & environment together with its shallow perspective.
