You probably noticed that I've been doing a lot of "through crowd" compositions lately. Here is another one I'd like to add to my collection. Okay I have quite a lot that I have done that haven't made it to the photoblog however this is one I spent some time on.

What is your general thought on these types of images? What do you think about this particular shot for instance? Where do you see it being you?

crowd shots are cool...make the picture just that bit more interesting. Where do I see it being me? Framing is perhaps the height of my artistic accomplishments
Double framed here ... 'Street images' are one of my desired routes and capturing the moment and body language and invariably conversion to black and white are the essentials.

Fascinating image - but I have to say I think the backs of the heads detract from an otherwise wonderful image. The 2 little kids watching the performer are magic.
nice thru-the-crowd

you seem to have desaturated your yellows some...adds a unique feel
Wow, great capture in the crowd. The lighting is very good!
