    This is my latest black and white pic. As people may know from my previous posts I have only just started taking photos and have been taking a lot of tips from this forum. This is my first non-candid shot of a street busker. Any tips or comments would be appreciated.

    Exposure and contrast is good.

    I would have liked to see this image while he was playing ... I think it would have made a stronger shot.

    Agreed. You did good by asking to take his photo, but after getting a few shots of him posing, I would have thanked him and followed up with, "Do you mind if I take a few shots while you play?". If he was willing to pose, he probably would have been fine with that as well. If you happen to see him again (buskers generally pick the same spot or area), I'd definitely try to get some shots of him playing.

    It is a great shot though =D

    You caught his expression well, along with getting all the technical aspects spot on.
