    Street perfomer earlier today

    I took my 70-300 into Leicester City centre for a short while today,this is the pick of all the shots.

    The backdrop is as good as it gets for the subject.The custom vignette preset in LR just completes it I think.

    The theatrical make-up just seems to absorb light,but I was determined to get something from it after many attempts recently.

    Nicely done Roy. The colors and blur as well as the OOF limb gives a nice depth to the image making the subjuct stand out better.

          Thank you Brian,praise indeed,much appreciated!

          When I got into town to get the shots,the performer hadn't yet set up,so after a bit of shopping,I was on a bus which passed the location and saw him,so,hopped off at the next stop and walked the few yards back,I'm pleased I did now.

                Fine shot Roy, well worth the walk back.

                For myself I'd be tempted to take a tiny bit off the top so that the yellow/brown stripe in the background exits out the top right corner as I think it balances the subject/background better - but that's really a matter of personal preference.

                As I say, top notch...

                    I like this a lot; interesting subject, works well in colour, good DoF and quite a bit of menace. Excellent work (agree about the slight crop).

                    Cheers,
                    John

                      Thanks John I see what you mean about the menace aspect.

                      I'll try the suggested crop and decide which I prefer..
