very candid and mundane to impart that essential casual spirit. Congratulations on your top twenty finish.

An excellent candid shot. Your exposure is just right.

It just dosen't have an emotional impact on me. 7

Superb image mostly because of the strength of the composition. Technical details are okay, too.

great in b&w, good composition and framing

This is a charming image. Lovely, spare composition; the subject is positioned well in relation to both the masonry behind him and the roadway extending up in front of him. The folding chair, the furled umbrella, the neat bag and the cup combine to tell us a story about this man. He's an organised and proud street musician, and certainly not some scruffy, casual beggar. I love photographs that stimulate thought. 9

I like capturing a candid shot. To me it shows him (my perception) tapping his left foot. Cool! Good image!

the border is too big but i love the look on his face... unfortunately, the umbrella is cut off and so is the box but it's wonderful... in europe somewhere? 7

looks very venician

great composition, framing works well too. i feel its european. one of my favs in this competition!

The b&w really works on this
08/18/2005 10:35:36 AM
Excellent use of B&W. This is a great photo subject to study. This street musician with his missing sock and broken chair (missing its back) has what looks like a nice watch, bag and umbrella. Technically the picture is very well done...10

This picture suffers a bit because the box and umbrella are not complete. Otherwise outstanding.
08/18/2005 12:05:35 AM
I like the B+W
08/17/2005 06:56:34 PM
This looks like something I would see at an Italian ristorante. Nice capture.
08/17/2005 02:09:31 PM
I like your model. The black and white is good too.
08/17/2005 01:49:30 PM
great B&W great shot, table a touch distracting....Almost would like to zoom out a bit
08/17/2005 11:50:59 AM
amazing frame and nice Composition, i really like it
08/17/2005 11:19:15 AM
This is top 3 in my voting (well, ok, I picked 5 10's...so top 5). But of those 5, I like this second best. The leading lines are perfect. The processing of the B&W is excellent. The isolation of the street performer is poignant. Even the umbrella is a serendipitous touch. I don't think the border distracts.
08/17/2005 08:00:31 AM
Nice candid. I'd have liked the back of the chair nearer the side of the frame, so that the box with his money wasn't chopped off. The diagonal line running from bottom-left to top-right helps to make a very effective composition.

Love this image - 10
08/17/2005 01:05:43 AM
Good work.

Nice use of black and white. Good contrast. I might've cropped out the carved stone above his head and just left that out.
