Another very last minute shot. I had pretty much given up on entering this challenge when I went for a walk around Chinatown in Sydney and took a few shots including this one.

I wasn't overly pleased with it straight off but after some editing I decided it's passable.

Editing steps were:

Crop, Curves, B&W with custom colour settings.

Darkened some of the whiter areas on the instrument, darkened areas of the hat.

Adjusted overall brightness, USM, crop again.

Excellent street candid. The tuning knob's encroaching a little on his eye space, but it's not serious.

Nice tones. It bothers me that part of the instrument is in his eye.
