Hay Street Mall, Perth City.
This young girl playing the sax greets me almost every time I venture through the city.
Her father watches on with pride from a small distance, some people stay for a minute to listen and then continue on, some stay for a little longer and give some money, while other people just walk on by as if she was playing in silence.

Congratulation for this original composition.I also like the shadow you took on the saxophoniste eyes.

Great idea to make her the only one with the face. The crowd is full of the anonymous people - faceless. A bit of a shame about the person in the back showing hjer face.

Great POV, I like how you have captured the musician in between all the crowds, the framing is really excellent as are the pale colours.

I really like the way you found her face in the crowded road. The pano view is also nice. Specially the tone of special color.

Here in Flanders Belgium playing a lot musicien in the street, this young girl playing the sax greets me almost every time you through the city, but without a gift to this lovely girl! (joke!)
Very well done, thanks a lot for visit and sharing.

Nice. I'm surprised it hasn't made it into the favorites section yet.
I think your view and crop are fantastic. You managed to have all these people going in and out the frame, yet without obstructing our view of the girl.
I actually like the girl in the back: adds even more depth to the photo.
Nice colors and frame as well.

Very original capture of a musical moment. You generated the impression of the girl highly concentrated on her music and the people going by almost desinterested. Very clever shot. TFS. CU, Erik
