I don't really know if my submission fits the challenge. I had the idea to photograph somebody (the street musician) who's unseen by the (shopping) people. The 'unseen person' sees the other people walking in front of them. The viewer of this picture sees the musician in a glance.

I cropped the picture and changed the colors somewhat.

Here's another shot of this 'serie': //members.home.nl/r-lindeboom/Foto/Mensen/images/IMG_0982.jpg

Very well done. You captured the accordian player perfectly and the other people out of focus is great. 9

good concept. these people are really unseen. we know they are there but don't "see". the composition and focus has come out very good.

cool idea, but the person they are avoiding looking at doesn't seem to be in the picture enough

I dont think the focus is harp enough to highligh the man in the background, there are too many out of focus people - 5

I like the idea and the treatment of it. I think perhaps it would have worked better if the busker was more visible from behind all those people. Having said that, no-one is looking at him, which is obviously the intention of your shot, and I bet it took of lot of shots before you had one like that. I love how the guy in the middle rumbled you. Love to know what happened next hehe

Everyone is too busy to make eye contact... it makes you wonder what the story is here. Great street capture.
