Good shot - I just wish the background was a little sharper so the people's expressions were easier to read. Deserves a lot more than 2 poxy clicks.

Coooool (gore fan coming out the closet lol)
I had the same thought as spaceman about the dof but pleased that there is enough to make out the varying reactions in the background - my favourites are the little girl with her hand over her mouth, and the girl next to her smiling away!

Was this in London by any chance? I'd love to see something like this for myself!

This is in Covent Garden, he is a regular there and is there almost all of the time I believe, he did a great act, it's just like going to a comedy club, same quality, but free. I love it round there.

Aahh, I've been there, albeit only briefly, on a previous meet. Need to keep an eye out in future. Cheers!

good photo; the excellent dof makes him stand out from the crowd without losing the horrified faces of the crowd itself, which are relevant to the picture and the overall effect.
