    I think the expression on his face makes this picture.

    I like it though personally i think i would prefer it as a little bit of a faster exposure so the batons/arms/hands were slightly more clear, but I like how he's completely still and they are blurred - shows the concentration

    Thanks for the comments. I thought the fact that he was holding so still besides his arms was a great opportunity to take advantage of a lower shutter speed. I was going to try other shutter speeds next next to produce less blur, then no blur, but he stopped, and I wanted to buy some fish from the market and get home. I'm satisfied I got the most interesting result. It was actually around 1 pm, and really bright out, but he was in an alley.

    I can't get over how great the 70-200 2.8 IS lens is, because you have the versatility to shoot really fast with the max 2.8 aperture and the IS, but you also have the ability to shoot hand held slow shutter speeds for effect because of the IS. <3
