I have a feeling the DPC crowd won't appreciate my interpretation of an Urban Landscape since it isn't a traditional landscape style shot, although it is definitely "of, relating to, or located in a city". Anyway, I took several shots, some more traditional "city scapes" but this one seemed to show more emotion.

These two guys were performing on the street. I dropped a dollar in their case, motioned to my camera and they were happy to have me take multiple shots. The guy with his back to us is playing stand up bass, which was very cool looking and I'm sorry I didn't get more of it in the shot, but I liked the expression for this shot so I sacrificed some of the other guy.

You got people points from me. It's an odd sort of category, 'cityscapes'. It sort of means urban landscape photography, which gives you all the skyline shots, fair enough... But it's not really a city without people, is it?

Great shot. Long may they busk.

Ok, funny story pretty sure I saw these guys when I was in Minneapolis going to dinner with the GF at Britts Pub! I like your shot, by the way, if you ever want someone to shoot with just let me know!

ya know, the cigarette in his mouth makes this image work--not sure why, but it does. 7

I wouldn't call this a landscape, but it is still one of my top photos.
