I like it. It probably needed a slightly faster shutter speed though.

The only down side is the perspective looks a bit odd due to the guy the background being HUGE! He draws my eye more than she does.

Thanks Daniel, you would be surprised how heavily I have cropped this shot to close up on this guy's reaction. I think it makes the shot interesting, otherwise it would be just the girl singing - boring. The guy tells us that the girl can actually sing. And he is right, Sammie Jay is a top top singer, and for a street performer she is ridiculously good. Just watch her audience:

It's not his size that draws me to him; it's the derp look on his face. lol

Well, shooting at random and then cropping 80% of the frame off just to close up on the guy is not exactly what I would call "by design" :scratch:, but yes, that was the idea.
I am glad it worked.
