Silverman, a local mime/juggler/entertainer.

Hue/Sat for Sepia tone.

Would love to get above a 6 with this, but there are going to be a lot of entries in this one, fingers crossed! It's not as sharp as I would have liked (manual focus) but it's a better pose than the sharper images.

P.S. I have e-mailed him the image, I'll see if he likes it...

It is great how the entertainer is sharp. The lines of his arms and the direction of his gaze pull the eye to the sphere. The background distracts from the strength of the image, though. You were probably limited in adjusting lighting and angle, but shallower depth of field might have helped blur the background so as not to be as distracting.

I like the main subject of this, but I think a tighter crop might have changed the feelings that one gets from this. I see a bored audience not paying attention to the entertainer, but a tighter crop along the bottom and right side would truly highlight the entertainer, and make this a more enjoyable image (at least for me). However, perhaps you intentionally left the audience, in which case "The Ignored Entertainer" might be more telling.

Great composition, contrast and texture in the clothing. Nice out of focus backround too. Nice.
