    Niceeeeee Peter thumb.gifthumb.gif


    I like the feel of the shot as well as the lively color clap.gif The only negative, for me, was the shadow leading down into the watcher's head.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Hi steve,
    I myself hadn't yet noticed it yet, but you are quite right .
    It is definitely a bad case of shadow growing out of ones head-syndrom .headscratch.gif

    I will have to be more carefull next time . :bluduh

    Hello Yuri.

    I was walking with my son through Amsterdam and just shooting away from the hip with my 828 at high shutterspeed.
    This didn't result in keepers, but I had my camera ready when my son went to give the musician a coin .
    I particularly like the gentle expression of the musician (and the colours of course ).

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Bye,

    Nice shot from the hip image! Street performers (or buskers as they are known here) are always a favourite of mine and I have a gallery dedicated to them in my pbase site.

    Hello Adrian.

    Because of the work on the new underground railway in Amsterdam, they have put this big blue wooden fence around the station.
    Made some background, no ?

    Thank you for dropping by.
