superb image! It is well composed and i really like what you have done with the color in this pic.
Nacha Kama: Glad you like Kany! :d
Very nice shot again, this time in color, very lovely
Nacha Kama: Thanks Amir!
I guess you know I love it without me telling you. The composition and processing are wonderful but the best part is the feeling of respect for the subject. He is in a subway but it feels like it could be a concert hall.
EXCELLENT!
Nacha Kama: Thanks alot Michael...i bet you would love tomorrow wink

Ah a quintessential NY sight - the subway performer. Beautiful capture and processing.
I really like the muted colors in this girl.

This is one hell of a good shot and very well processed.
What I love about this photograph, is that you have given this guy `dignity` despite his surroundings. Superb! (:o)

Have you done some multiple selective colouring, or is there just a lot of b&w around? It looks a lot like the early attempts at colour photography.

Excellent picture.

The colors are very strong...
it could be a photo taken in a studio... strange feeling...
anyway it is great.
How I love this picture, despite the mess it exudes friendliness and concentration. I hope he will collect enough to create for himself a cleaner environment, if he desires!
A great composition here Nacha and clever management of lights and color !

You know, so often photos of street people do not respect the dignity of the subject, but yours does. The composition, in fact the entire thing, puts the emphasis first on him as a musican and a person ..and then secondly on his surroundings. Well done!

Some of the best musicians I have ever heard have been sitting in "street" corners like this, NaCha. I will ALWAYS give them some coins. They are worth a lot more than that.

You've done him and his lot proud!

A fine street scene shot. I like the row of white blocks leading to the white guitar. Nice action in his fingers.
cool contrast and fantastic colours

Judging by the player's posture, his place is in the Lincoln Center in front of the full orchestra, performing, maybe, Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjez".
Love it.

Very nice street scene shot. I like the colour tones

Y'know, its hard to achieve selective coloration without ending up with a cheesy shot. This has been brilliantly executed! Love it!

Really fine capture.
Excellent style. Very individualistic. The strong light and detail here give this an almost surreal effect.
