Good Morning Everyone,
Please view the photograph here on Beta which you will see much sharper and clearer.
It was a sunny morning when we were in Trier. The city was alive with street entertainers and artists.
My photograph shows such an artist who was working from a photograph. Though he was in the shade, he was conveniently seated so that he could be viewed through the nearby corner, shop window, too!
I wasn't the only photographer interested in his work. There was another looking very critically at the developing portrait!
You can be judges too.
As a workshop, I will post a close-up of his work here. .
What do you think?
Have a great Sunday, Bev :-)

The young and beautiful lady is anxiously waiting for the completion of the portrait in process, Beverley.
Caught a moment with some tension noticed, expectation and curiosity.
People on the pedestrian road also looking towards the artist, like the woman with the bay-carriage and the man behind her.
Fine outcome, good light and clarity collected.
Have a nice Sunday,

Nice street scene, the artist is performing his work by reproducing a picturewhile some tourist admire him. You've well managed the setting in order bot to have a big contast between the shade and the sunny area. I would have avoided to cut in 2 the portait at bottom right

A well framed composition encompassing a number of interesting elements that all come together to form a harmonious whole. I like very much the point of view looking through the shop window to the busy street beyond whilst we also get a taste for the artist's work. Very good management of the light and shadow contrasts ensures the mood is perfectly captured.
Greetings from a grey and rather cool Charente-Maritime with just a hint of rain in the air.

These portrait artists are found in most touristy areas. They are usually remarkably clever technically but nearly always seem to lack the ultimate talent for creating something of their own. These portraits look exactly the same everywhere. But I always try to take photos like this, and you found a very good angle where we can see the artist in action, some of his earlier work, another photographer and the crowded street. We see everything we need to see to get the picture.

C'est vrai qu'il a beaucoup de talent cet artiste qui se sert de la rue pour montrer son travail aux touristes. Il semble y avoir beaucoup d'intérêt pour son travail.C'est drôle mais on dirait qu'il y a quelque chose de suspect dans la bouche de la dame.

Hello Beverley The artist is truly performing an incredible feat, painting the lady's face while she stands behing him! When visitors walk in mid-street the carnavalesque spirit confirms, especially when the minute details appear so clearly in shaded areas as well as in sunny patches. Cheers

Excellent travail de l'artiste des rues, le WS montre mieux le dessin ! le cadrage me plait aussi, ici l'on voit l'environnement ou l'artiste se trouve, les reflets, la présence de la dame , beaucoup de détails a voir et de couleurs, c'est deux belles présentations qui ce complète bien

A very lively scene. Lots of people were strolling around on that morning.
I like the view with what's inside the shop window and with the many people seen through the glass.
Peeking over the shoulders of an artist is something we always like to do :)
Einstein is everywhere a grateful topic.
Best regards, Paul

I have been to Trier once, but it was a rather cloudy afternoon unfortunately. It’s a lovely and lively impression of the city. The artist at work is well included in the foreground along with some of his works of art and the sunny shopping street forms a fine background.

Funny, looking in my archive for a suitable picture for today I considered for a moment a photo I took of a similar situation in Montparnasse. Only the weather wasn’t so pleasant with a lot of rain and Einstein didn’t let made a portrait there :- )
Have a nice day
