PLAYING TO THE CROWD by BRUCE ROSIE
GRADE - ACCEPTANCE
This image tells me a story of an interesting, quirky musician – just look at the earrings and the colour of the instrument. Technically the shutter speed has caught movement in his hand yet the focus on his face looks sharp. I find the background objects a bit distracting, despite the low DOF you have used to blur them. I would also love to see photographer subject engagement to keep me from feeling a little like a bystander.
