About the Image(s)

Taken on a street in Italy. I was intrigued with what might have caught the gaze of this accordion player. The alcove with its posts caught my eye, but this man apparently spotted something more intriguing.

This is a great shot. Lots of interesting parts - the accordion, his gaze and his feet barely fitting on the walk way. If you could crop out the red/brown door on the right I think it would be a stronger image. There might not be enough room to crop though.   Posted: 11/07/2019 09:24:56

Since this is a street scene, I'm in favor in your view with the door at the right; other wise the viewer would not have a feeling of a street. The subject is looking off camera which causes one to stop and wonder what is he seeing...
Good color and sharpness.

Great capture of the man and his accordion - he looks a bit whimsical with nothing much happening in his little patch. Something much be happening down to his right though. I don't think the image would suffer by getting rid of the doorway - the interest is all in the man and the mystery of what has captured his attention.   Posted: 11/10/2019 14:00:35

It's a very happy street scene and intriguing. I like his expression. It makes you wonder what he sees. It is odd that he is perched on the edge of the walkway. I might have cropped a little differently, keeping the doorway and even a bit more of the stone wall. I like the wall as a leading line. Colorful and crisp. Very nicely seen!   Posted: 11/11/2019 21:51:02

I like the crop you have with the doorway. My first impression was to remove it. I think it helps balance it with him looking off to the left. I like the street photography you share, I haven't done this much.   Posted: 11/13/2019 05:19:33
