Wow, I like this angle and crop even better than the first. It’s full of character; I really feel the music here. Thanks for showing different approaches to the same subject. We learn a lot from this process.
Nicki your B&W PP on this image is lovely. I think the crop helps it along, and the vignette works well to draw attention to the facial detail. I like it a lot, I did a set of musician portraits, I’ve never blogged them, I might after seeing yours…. CSJ
CRAIG: Different places, different scenes and different photographs makes every shot unique! I think you have to post your “musicans” … I’m so curious! I’m thinking to your special way of PP – this must be great :).
CHRISTOPHER: I also think that the crop concentrates the charcter here. I have some captures more showing this man between passers. For the PP: Getting a deep contrasted result isn’t easy … if you are looking for such a result you are always good adviced having a look to the blue-channel :).
This one is amazing Nicki!! Brilliant capture!!
I agree about the processing – the black and white and the tones on his face bring it out really well.
Hope you left him something! :-)
TOM: Of course – I leave him enough coins for a break at Starbucks! :)
Very well captured.
wow, so professional, i like it.
:) wollte er auch ein CD-Cover? Die würde ich sofort holen!!
Es ist erstaunlich wie man mit ~BW~ berühren kann..
Very beautiful portrait, and technically perfect. I especially like the contrast of gray.
the blur background and clear details really made this BW frame.
I love this!
This is excellent post processing. Congratulations.
Firstly I love the setup of your blog, it is so different from any that I have seen so far. Your artwork is great, your really capture the moment giving the viewer a feeling of being there.
ESSEX: Whooo – I’m pleased, thanks a lot!
I like street photography and I am so glad to find this beautiful blog.
this shot has nice dof and composition
