Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a great entry for the Music challenge and a great photo outside the challenge as well. Good composition, nice pose, effective point of view, and taken at just the right moment. The diffuse lighting works well, exposure and focus are great, and just the right amount of sharpness. The colors work well together, giving a pleasing contrast between the elements. In short, everything meshes together to convey a pleasant, relaxed mood and give a sense of presence to the viewer.

There is some room for improvement. The photo is a bit flat; increasing the contrast would give some depth. The spot in the background next to the musicians head is mildly distracting and could easily be cloned out. Although the overall sharpness is perfect, there are some sharpening halos where his pants meet his shirt and the bow. They are only noticable when you look for them, but could have been avoided.

I will not call this musician a street musician. However, this is a very nice pastoral capture with that good old time flavor. The sound of a cello is so cool. Bumping up.

THis is a very nice portrait and nicely photographed, I like the subdued focus for the background and I would vote this a 6.Now looking at this image Ifeel the action is in the top half and personally I would have concentrated on this. Perhaps moving around to the left and with a low angle could have made it more dynamic,and rased my vote,. your subject has an interesting face as well and his expressions whilst playing would make for some interesting compositions,.

I guess he's not in a marching band.

Sweet! Wish the musician could have been separated more from the background a bit more... perhaps the bokah could have been more pronounced. Maybe a Gaussian effect? I feel like it should be warm and a bit romanticized... The guy is great!

Bright and colourful with nice composition.
A shallower depth of field to completely blur the background would have made this a winner with me.
Good work.
