Subtle this one as I didn't go out today to get anything new. Not that this is anything bad it's just not as sophisticated as what I would have liked to post. What the heck it's Friday and I think I need a little creative break.

really good frame and perspective..I like the subject. nice Jade!
You can't post winners everyday, Jide. You shouldn't be so harsh on yourself. This is big on interest, if not entirely on post prod. It has a cool, lai-back vibe about it.
very good, love the leading lines

Haven't been out this year to take any pictures, what you complaining about? (Waiting impatiently for the camera smile ) Very interestingly visual shot, like the way ones eye sort of goes on a journey before getting to the mainstay of the shot. Nicely done.

nice simple composition works really well,
so used to seeing pictures composed by the rule of thirds,that this one is interestingly different...!
i need to stop using that as a rule...!
I like the colours and the simplicity of this image. All the necessary elements are there.

I just have this burning desire to pan right slightly, or at least take one large stride to the right, and put more wall in front of the man than behind him.

Interesting, some says go the rule and some not. It is like selling the picture - some will buy it and some not. Made me think again.

Don't know what you are complaining about - it is a great picture, a man in blue space.

I like the simplicity of the shot. I do wish w could see more of the flute or whatever he is playing but unless you yelled "hey you" I guess the unsuspecting don't always cooperate fully.
