Hi Nacha. I hope this musician makes out well. Looks like he plays along with the music on the CDs?

Great street shot.

I like both pictures. Now we have two angles of view!
Nacha Kama: No the CD's are for sale. Thanks Kay! smile

It took me awhile to figure out what this was, Nacha, and then suddenly, I got it! Having just been there in April, it would have really been cool to see something like this in the subway! The lighting gives it a surreal feel. Good eye!
Nacha Kama: I Guess when next you come to NY there would be alot to Photograph. Thanks Granny!
Lighting is off the hook! Good Job!
Cha cha, okay going to be honest here...

Finally I see potential in your photography and PP. This for me is the best work I have ever seen from you to date, FINALLY I AM IMPRESSED.

Good lighting, very very good PP, extremely extremely well framed. Love the way the light source, comes from the left, thats what really gives this shot it's ambience. Suby is impressed, lets see if you can impress me again with your next shot.

Oh and please less of the funky PP from your previous images, less and subtle sometimes is best. grin
Nacha Kama: "Best Work" Hmmmmm Personallly for me I don't think so....but if this exicts/impresses you...Kudos
When i process my images i do to it...the best i can and mostly what best fits it, (everyone with their own taste) personally I don't think my PPs are in excess hence I don't put up the orginal image(s) itself. Some techniques I use here are guidelines from Prof. Boon and a few digital photo students. Thanks for your pointers however, am glad this one "impressed you" :d
great lighting! pretty cool photo. ive never seen one of these guys here in toronto. not an all in one man.
Nacha Kama: Thanks Andrew!

you've quite blown my mind with this post, Nacha! Busking is really on another level in NY. How does he carry all this? And the lighting... brilliant!! I'm inspired.

Street shots are always cool, his eyes are scary.
Nacha Kama: LOL!
Thanks anyways!
There's a lot of detail here and it works well, as far as I'm concerned. Excellent street shot.

ChaCha. Yes, this is a very well photographed image, but I am going to rain on the parade a bit here - the really dark shadows causing an almost vignette, rather spoil the photograph for me, especially the one on the basket and the top left one obscuring the people in the background. Overall, the photo is very good, apart from that. Many regards, Neil.
Nacha Kama: Thanks Neil.
Good shot, good entertainment !

Nacha this is a nice capture of the New York spirit! This is one of the few reasons I miss NY; the spontaneity! the conspicuousness of art in every nook and cranny, mennn, I love NY!

Oh the same scene, from two different photographer, interesting. Nice scene smile

It's such a packed scene and it makes me think of a surrealist painting not a photograph. I keep thinking of it as a frame from an old comic, not a record of a three dimensional scene.
what a chaotic shot - but it works well with the light-effect

The spotlight does it in this shot.
