Bella compozione Gae, rende bene l'idea dell'atmosfera milanese!

I like the sound of the Accordion, but somehow recently it's been connected with many sad scenes for me... This looks like another sad one... Those things always make you wonder - when did he manage to learn how to play, where did he get the Accordion - and if he is obviously educated, how come he is a begger... Well, your photo has enspired my imagination and emotions, and I guess that's the goal!
PS -- I like this one better than the first one -- it's less intense and doesn't suffer from the somewhat over exposure the first one had...

The expression on his face, is just as sad and battered like his accordion.Just like him, his accordion has seen better life and play happier music.
And you cutting off his legs, is symbolic too, in telling us, how this accordionist's life is. Not much to do, no where else to go.

Excellent composition in this shot of the street musician, Gae. He is nicely in focus on the right side, and on the left we see some good urban detail from Milan. He looks a bit lost in thought, but I like this candid shot. Also because I used to learn to play the accordion when I was young ... Well done.

Great picture - The expression on the musican face is , to some extent, blue.
I think the color in the picture can be improved a little bit more.
I will try to workshop it.

Ciao Gae. I like that you chose a square composition for this shot rather than a long one. I feel that the background could've been less in focus, but other than that a fine shot.
