Seen in Winchester last Xmas (I know it is a long time ago but I have been waiting for a thread to post them).

A hopeful busker

    Hope you like them

    Nice - I like the interplay of the two people and the dummy in no. one, and the woman smiling and roaring right by in the second - along with the older guy in the background.

    And date of shoot really means nothing....

    Agree with BD--nice jobthumb.gif. I would try converting the first to B&W to get rid of those unfortunate jacket colors. You might also consider cropping a bit off the top to make the image less busy. I think color works better on the second one, where the reds in the foreground are echoed in the background and harmonize with the yellows there.

    Thanks BD and Richard for your comments and advice.
    I have converted the first image as suggested - see below.

    I think this works better. It removes the distractive colours and concentrates more on the interesting aspects of the image. Thanks for the tip Richardthumb.gif ,
