like it - made me smile.
(went to a Boy's Brigade brass band concert last night, these tiny children blowing for all they were worth and horrible sounds coming from the instruments - I wanted to laugh and cry)

. .I like these Paris shots . . good juxtaposition between the in focus and the BG image . . the crop works to "suggest" exactly what you want to say also . .

I could see these Poster sized in some smokey Parisien Cafe? LOL Smile . . .

Thanks Ken - really appreciate the feedback. The candids from Paris were pretty much experimental as I haven't really done them before, so I'm pleased other photographers think they work. It's great to get confirmation that you're doing something right 8-]

Suzi, you say these two candids were experimental..To me they exude pure class! I thought it was Paul Michael Glazier from the thumbnail of Past Lives. Thought you had discovered the whereabouts of an ol' 70's superstar! Both of these would make great poster images.

Not one to want to see great talent leave our shores, but I think I know where you should stick your pin when planning your next move Smile

Great shot! Playing with the contrast a tiny bit might be nice, it looks a bit bland. The Dof makes the image what it is though! nicely done!
