Lord knows the trouble he has seen. I used this fellow in 2006 for a Soft Focus challenge. In fact, I was looking for him today in Central Park, NYC. In 2006 he was playing a sad bluesy violin. Because he had switched to the accordion today, I switched to the ABC...LMN..XYZ challenge. Shot raw, adjusted exposure, sharpness and saturation. Converted to jpg adjusted levels and contrast. Slight crop, converted to challenge size, USM times two with fading on second shot.

Odd! This is the third accordion I've seen in less than a week. Not the most common instrument around. Fantastic detail and tones! I kinda want to see more of the accordion though. ((like I haven't seen enough in a week!))

I don't know why, but I think from the mans expression he looks blind. I like him and the accordion, but I find the metal fence and partial sign on the right hand side to be distracting.

good job separating the player from the background. good, strong natural tones and colors (not oversaturated)

Intense concentration? Or shyness because the picture is being taken? I think that a crop to the shoulder would focus the image a bit more.
