I must first apologized for the slow response since the last few weeks as work has been keeping me very busy. It’s all those end of the year frenzy when you have to get everything done before the year is out. At last I can now have some breathing space.
6.00p.m. - A tourist hot spot is always like a war zone with photographers shooting in all directions. While some are cool and trying to take that perfect shot, others look nervous and shy. It is always fun to see all these activities going on and of course their reactions too. This is one aspect about travel that I seemed to enjoy, maybe because I am one of them.
This shot was taken just around the corner of the Basilique Du Sacre Coeur at Montmartre where a lot of artists are at work and selling their art pieces.
PP- cropped the top and bottom and change to a landscape format.

Glad to see you again and with this nice capture and picture. The drawing artist and the photographer taking a shot to him. Good action moment and many details in the composition. Clear picture, fine sharpness and light.
Very well seen, done and composed. Congratulations and my best regards.

Yeah, interesting life action shot. Love the impression of the photographer, getting and trying to get the perfect shot at the street artist.
This image is well captured with good sharpness and clarity.
Well done, Aloysius.

Hi Aloysius, Welcome back. You have posted a very interesting photo here. It is quite intense to make a drawing with so many lens to face the artists in different angles. Your camera was one of them. A nice capture of the actions, both to the drawing artist, as well as to the photographers. Good sharpness and rich texture.

A pleasant place between these artists, everyone look toward the models, the two photographers are the real eye catchers, good daily life picture out of Paris!

Looks like a very busy street scenery! Lots of action, lots of things going on in all directions... Good thing you have an attention magnet like the guy in the blue shirt, so I can start exploring the picture from there... Interesting!

Your compo shows this place like it is : an artificial and overcrowed one...
I don't like it (even if I used to live just closed to it a few years ago) but I like the way you shoot my town.

You have captured quite an interesting scene here, one very serious photographer creating art out of an artist who appears to be just as serious.

Hi Aloysius. Wow the guy across from you has some the serious equipment out, doesn't he? I'm afraid you've been outgunned! I like all of the different people you have in the shot for our eyes to inspect. Nice daily life catch Aloysius.

Hi Aloysius, nice catch of the moment. The people behind also gave the crowded feeling of this place. The color of the photo is nice.

An interesting daily life shot. I like the various situations here, with the two very different photographers and the artist busily at work. The umbrellas protecting the artists add balance. A very pleasant slice of life in this tourist war zone.

I remember Montmatre as a very nice place and this shot with the many artists brings back some good memories to this place! Good capture with the several photographers, well composed too!
