OK, I'll crit it myself now I look at it with fresh eyes...
Should have blured that far arm a bit, doh! Apart from that it's a reasonable effort for a colourholic.

PS. can I have a good crit point for that, team?
LOL!

I prefer the b&w version Pat. Would liked to have seen a little more of his cap, but otherwise great! You have captured his whole character and personality all in one. Nice one.

see yesterdays comment, the difference with the reduced Dof and the conversion together with the slight tilt to the top left make an ordinary snap into a serious image, for me not quite as powerful as yesterdays but that was an exceptional composition, this is more conventional. its damn good though and much better for the mono.

Good work on that background, the sign was a big distraction. He looks like a real character. "Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words....."

Thank you Phil, I'm not very confident in mono, but you've spurred me on.

Pamela, you've given me a grin this morning..
"Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words....."
That was exactly the moment!

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the comments, P, X

Again you've turned an ordinary image into something really worth looking at. To my mind mono allows the viewer to concentrate on the shape and composition of a shot rather than be distracted by colour ... and you've achieved that in spades with the two busker shots you've posted recently.

Dave

Thanks I'm so glad you mostly like it.
For me it brings the moment, 2 years ago, right back. A slightly shy guy with a lived in face, but he played that 12 string like it was part of his body and soul.
Hope I meet him again one daySmile

The only moan I have is the head crop and arm/elbow out of the picture otherwise a nice portrait.

This image is much slighter than your previous upload and for me as a result doesn't take mono so well - indeed I feel it ends up looking just a little cliched. Unduly harsh but street performers done in B&W need a strong comp to carry them because they have been done so many times before.

I had better stop - I am rambling!

Best wishes for a peacful new year

Robert

Robert, thanks so much for all the constructive critique. I see what you mean about searching for a stronger comp here, and I'll bear it in mind in the future.
Exactly the sort of pointer I was hoping for. Thanks again!
