Fifth entry of this recent series shows an elderly Street artist in Berlin. Fully concentrated in his art.
Bu serinin beşincisi de Berlin'den bir sokak sanatçısı.
Kendini sanatına vermiş, etrafında olup biten umurunda değil.

Hello dear Mesut,
I love this portrait of the artist while working. A fine composition and effective framing give dynamism and intensity that vivify the scene. I like very much how his concentration fills the frame and how his lowered face, his hand and the painting he's working on are connected. Depth and sharpness are superb and I also love the textures and the mild monochrome. Lighting is wonderful too, it graduates very nicely and makes the artwork stand out. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Your idea to show these in black and white is great, and once again this image suits the format perfectly. I love the framing of the whole scene, you got in every important element of the scene, as well as the look of intense concentration on the mans face. Nicely done.

you choose a very good character for this well composed mono conversion.
The features of the elderly artist concentrating studiously are sharp and clear,very nicely done.
Best wishes Les.

An enjoyable series, and another pleasing black & white image...which in itself is artistic. I always enjoy pictures like these, which show an artist working his craft. I have to ask though, is this Noah, shouldn't he be on an ark? :) Sorry, my bad attempt at humor!?
Credit certainly must be given to these individuals that have talent to display, I'm lucky if I can even draw a proper circle!? A wonderful capture of the daily life aspect, a man with concentration and determination to express his abilities....and you've done great to showcase the human element. Thanks for sharing this look at life on the streets. Enjoy the day ahead.

Well presented this artist at work, good angle and interesting contrast in b&w, well made.

Du weißt ja, dass ich nicht viel von Schwarz/weiß-Fotografie halte - denn unsere Welt ist Gott sei Dank eine bunte Welt. Dieser alte Straßenmaler hat mich jedoch fasziniert - auch wie Du ihn hier abgebildet hast. Ein tolles Bild!
Herzliche Grüße aus dem regnerischen Siegen. Endlich - nach wochenlager Trockenheit!
Ich hoffe, Dir geht's gut.

I like your b/w series of Art shots, and chose this one because it shows the artist at work. You've processed this to achieve a pleasing tonality - not too much contrast and good control of highlights. It's a terrific portrait of the old man, who seems also to have an interesting artistic style.

İyi günler Mesut Bey,
Şimdi demeyin, Portremi yaptırıyordum, pek benzememiş çünkü! Şaka bir yana, bakış açınız pek etkili. S&B olması da detaylara değil, sanatçıya bakmamızı sağlıyor. Biraz hüzünlü ama, bu adamcağız gittikten sonra gelen geçen resminin üzerine basıp tebeşiri yayacak, bir yağmur, bir sokak temizleyicisi eserinin işini bitirecek.

Just beautiful, the b6w, the pose of the old man painting, so concentrated on his work... The pov is perfect! I like this!

I like the way you have got down to the artist's level. This low pov offers a sympathetic view of the artist and his work. We see at that level his concentration and skill.
