Well Done,

Ohhh...fantastic!! Knez Mihajlova street:))

Alban, this is really an outstanding work...a real example how an everyday life scene goes through 'the filter' of an artist's sensibility and gives beautiful results.

Thanks for a new fav for me!

Very powerful picture with the perfect title, Alban. I really like how you have captured everyone when they had passed the young man playing music for charity. Very good daily life shot and your B&W treatment with some additional white makes it very moody. Excellent!

Magnificent image you have created Alban
It's artistic in every way, the musician is the art piece of the photo, everything here is perfect including your PP work, this is definitely one of my favorite pictures on TL.
Thanks for sharing this truly beautiful art piece )

Hi Alban,
if this photo was colourful it wouldn't have such strong impact I guess. So choosing to convert it to b&w was a very good decision beacause it emphasises the loneliness of an artits and indifference of people passing by. A very moving photo. tfs


Perfect title, and what a great shot, Alban! I don't think you could have "staged" this any better! The guy leaning against the post casually, everyone else walking in the opposite direction...just wonderful!

Jos uvek ne mogu da verujem da je to Bg, extra fotka!

Hi Alban,
one of the strongest photos on TL during the long time I think. You've achieved perfect separation of the musician from the crowd shifting him almost to the right edge, focuning attention on him with great details and sharpness, while building another world far apart with blur and high-key. It created very, very strong feeling of loneliness and alienation, but at the same time the relaxed pose of the guy tells loudly "I feel comfortably with myself and my music. I am ok!". Choice of B&W was a very wise move - I am not distracted by useless colour details, focused on strong, meaningful composition instead. An artwork for me! tfs

Hi. Whiteness is very good. Your compositon with the title suits very well. Well done TFS.

Hi Alban!
Amazin' shot! This is so natural and something like a daydream I must say! Perfect memory! All i could have advise would have been on the title but it seems so apt as well.
Congrats for the superb gift!
