The mannequins appear to be turning a deaf ear as well as a blind eye.
I love the way you see connections.

Well spotted again, Ken. The line of standing figures with the harpist sitting gives a great balance to the scene.

So, something completely out of your normal comfort zone, Ken and trying your hand ast candid street photography in CardiffGrinGrin
You should do more, judging from this one. At least one of them spotted you, and the dummies seem to be deliberatly ignoring your prescence. Either that or the music made them look elsewhere.
As usual for you, very well spotted.

Super composition.. The line up of the human v dummies is excellent, great observation

I try and take photos ABOUT something more than OF something. Here you could for example find an angle where you could also see her audience - see her communicating with them - them responding to her performance. I assume that is what you are wanting to show with the man. It does not TOTALLY come through to me as a viewer - I see a woman with an open mouth and a strange wooden thing I don't understand what is. Maybe also you put him in connection with the two manequins in the window - like he is the third deaf dumb and blind guy?
