    Took this photo a couple of months ago now, I was listening to this busker belt out some mad tunes and the scene reminded me of a photo from a David Bailey book. He had a street scene where an old man looked on at a trumpet player with rapt expression.

    I feel that the contrast of the older busker and the young skaters, along with the hip fashions in the background made for an interesting shot.

    Great idea, I only wish the skaters were a bit closer to the musician. Good eye anyway.

    I like it! Since my eye was fixed on the left side of the shot for a little while, when I realized there was more to it to the right, I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was an entirely different picture, and gave me the sense I was looking at a magazine ad. I love that the store - with its display - is behind them. B&W seems to fit this one well.

    :)

    Sweet! It's not cluttered even though I spent a long time looking because there were so many interesting things. Nice storytelling!

    It took me a while to figure out why this worked so well... It's the spot light effect on the musician. It's almost like you picked him up from a night club stage and dropped him in the scene. Very nice.
