In his world

By Steve Cribbin
I was going across York, yesterday, between a couple of photography events and came across this street musician playing a piano. I was travelling light, so I just had my bridge camera. He had a notice on the end of the piano asking for donations for photos or filming. I still checked that it would be ok and dropped some money in his bucket. I took eight shots altogether and have uploaded images from the best three of them.
I have gone for showing the interaction between the passing lady and the guy, or is it with me?

The Lightroom 3 BETA's noise reduction really helps with this small format sensor.

f/6.3 @ 1/100 sec ISO 200

Excellent street shots, I spent a very happy half hour a year or so ago photographing this guy with passers-by, so I can hear him now! I like the treatment in V2, he's in his own world.

Thanks for the comments and votes Moira and Dennis and John for the vote. I started off intending to use V2 as the main image - for the reasons that you said - but wondered if the passerby added something?
