This is the image that has really got me excited today - you couldn't ask for better choreography between the faces and stances, real and illusory. Have a UA.

Brilliantly spotted, perfectly composed, excellent in b&w. I'm rather envious. . . . .

Now this is sooo perfect in black & white, Tom. Wow. And the lines are so straight, the tones are just awesome...this is so magazine-worthy. And I mean GOOD magazines, obviously. Congrats on the UA. Well-deserved.

This is a terrific study. I find myself wishing that the busker was sitting immediately beneath "The Hayes" and the bending man immediately below "Shop 'til 8pm" but I wonder whether that would be too contrived.

I like the storefront--which seems to be floating above reality!

Wonderful! Such a good context contrast of the folks who would shop and a busker trying to earn some sort of living. Really good photography - the tonal quality is excellent

Cardiff City centre seems to be a great place for people watching and photograhy, I've thoroughly enjoyed viewing both yours and Ken's (Franken) shots from here
