    I like all of them.
    The one I like best is the last one. Great focal lenght always give nice pictures with the "smashed" background.:D
    I also like the shapness of the picture and the DoF.

    But let me go back to the 1.st: the shadow on the guy's right arm is not that flatering. But he was there in the street, singing ... you couldn't move him...:D

    My guess is that the one on our right is human. He/she is standing. It's a nice work.:D

    Good work Richard. Keep them coming.thumb.gif

    You know, I shot that pic more than a month ago and the truth is I don't remember. :hide I think you are right, though. I see that guy working frequently, so next time I see him I'll be sure to let you know. :D

    These are fabulous! I don't usually like street photography - I find it to look too much like snapshots unless done really well. And these are done really well! Lots of movement, interest, a definite focus. Awesome!

    Great series, Rich. Makes me wish I lived in such a colorful place and with such character.

    Update: I saw him this morning--the one on the right (with the bucket) is the person. He doesn't knock himself out...when someone puts money in the plate all he does is open his eyes and move them around a bit. lol3.gif
