Go ahead with Duesseldorf scenes.
Like everywhere in Germany also in Duesseldorf the Christmastime is on it's top with different events.
The Street musicians have a full programm; like this brass group from Holland ! By the way, when walking in Duesseldorf you can hear more Dutch than German !
Düsseldorf görüntülerine devam.
Almanyanın her yerinde olduğu gibi Düsseldorfda da Noel hazırlıkları tam gaz.
Altstadt kesiminde de Hollandalı bir caz grubu kendilerine mekan tutmuşlar, enfes caz müziği yapıyorlar.
Sokaklarda Almancadan çok Hollandaca duymak mümkün !

Ah, ha, this is one which our friend Gunnar (saxo042) will appreciaite very much!
I love it too because it's a wonderful and well cropped picture of these street musicians, obviously well wrapped-up from the cold weather - and in this central musician's case his red scarf and woolly hat add to the feeling of Christmastime!
I like how the central "player" and his instrument are in sharp focus. The light, colours and exposure are perfect too.

Indeed I appreciate such pictures, not only for the bright red colour that immediately catches my eyes, but more for the kind of equipment he is using. A Selmer alto (though I can´t really see the model, I use a Mark VI tenor and a Mark 7 alto myself) and the same Francois Louis ligature that I also use. A very special ligature, much better than the traditional type that the tenor player to the left is using.

I like the close crop of this image with the central musician sharp in focus and the others out of focus, The gold and red colours are very attractive.

Good Morning Mesut,
I knew Gunnar would appreciate this!
Do you remember the photo he used to have on his profile?
The photograph is well composed, the main figure's eyes strongly positioned in the frame and, with a pleasing l/r movement across it.
The red scarf is an eye-catcher, warms up the shot and helps to bring attention to the musician.
I love to hear these outdoor musicians; all part of the Christmas mood.
Have a lovely day,

nice the 'portrait' of the man in the street musicians with his red scarf to contrast perfect with the grey colours of the scene.
The blur of the man on the backdrop makes the man even more effective.

Le portrait de ce musicien à l'écharpe rouge en action est intéressant et bien cadré. Peut-être un léger manque de netteté sur le visage?

Great close up portrait and street scene combination, the instrument glows like gold, while the mans expression shows how intent he is on performing perfectly! I like the background of the other man facing the camera too.
Thanks as always

I like this close-up framing, the blur on the left and the right men gives some more depth and fosters the focus on the central man. It's a pity he isn't very sharp or slightly out of focus, the image would have been far more attractive.

Well taken capture focusing on the man with the red scarf
Quite original and musical Xmas composition, congrats

Hello dear Mesut,
an attractive and interesting tight frame, the scene presented is very dense and your composition has increased its intensity. A deep view into the band, an intriguing focus on one of its members, engrossed in playing his music. We can feel the cold, cant' hear the music but the interest of the scene and the bright and cheerful colours surely attract our attention. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
