Paris mime artist..

By forilion  
This is a shot I took in Paris outside the a few weeks ago. The actor was a mime artist who had a group of about 50 people watching on the stairs even though it was about -2 degrees!... very cold but very magical...

I have cropped and boosted contrast in PS. Nothing more.

The shot is a little blurred (he kept moving so much!) but I think the shot worked - what do you think?

i like it. can make out enough. lovely colours and mood. a bit messy on top. i'd crop a good third. just me maybe.

Agree with noseprints, a crop from the top would only strengthen the picture. The movement complements the image, it emphasises the dramatic pose. Very well done!

Has a slightly unsettling quality. I like it. Reminds me of a painting.

I think this worked extremely well. The colours, blur, cropping, expression on face etc. all works wonderfully, for me.
A magical image.

Very unusual, painting-like pic. Weird and wonderful. I'd be tempted to crop a little more off the top of the frame but I like this a lot. Well shot in difficult conditions!
