To me – the walking person in the background is distracting. That’s what I noticed first when opened the image – and only after reading the title I realized the saxophone player is the likely subject of the picture. But that’s my personal opinion only. Either way believe it was a great idea to capture a street performer in the archway for this challenge.

the sax is hard to see, maybe a title like "Downtown Tunes" would have been better. I like the high contrast, although it is a little blown out, very difficult lighting situation, maybe later in the day would have been better

Like the pattern on the tunnel walls -- enhances the 'frame' theme.

Nice b&W and I like the angle used.

I think the exposure is a bit off with regards to what is the subject. Maybe more exposure time to let the saxophone man be lighter. The light outside will be more overexposed but as it already is overexposed it wouldent hurt.

But then again, then "framing" would disapper. Hmm maybe you took the best decision.

Uh-oh. I didn't even see the saxophone until the title hit me. The first thing I noticed was the person in the background, framed by the tunnel. Personally, I think this may hurt your score some because it seems then that your subject (saxophone player) really isn't framed per se. It's an interesting study as far as a photograph goes with the dual subjects, one automatically drawing attention (distant person), the other lurking in the shadows. JMO of course. :-) Good luck in the challenge.

Needs more light on the subject. The frame dominates a little too much, IMO. Nice, but I had to look twice to see the sax man.

I like how you have the main focus of the photo in the frame, instead of behind it. Great job

I really like the perspective, though I'm not fond of the blown highlights vs the dark interior.

Fantastic picture, shame its just basic editing rules because of the balance between exposures, but I have a feeling also that the background may not have been as interesting as the sax player. As i'm drawn to the sax player, I love it! Good luck!

blown out ...try focusing on subject and treat levels accordingly. Plus confusion of subject if your frame is the arch-could be good.

I like the high contrast.

everything within the "frame" is blown out.
