This guy is a street performer in San Francisco. He's a pretty amazing tap dancer. I was watching him dance the other day and decided to get some pictures of him for the Heat challenge since he works up quite a sweat dancing all day. This was my favorite shot from the day. He was leaning down to change his music. I hope people think it fits the challenge and enjoy the capture.

A 6 from me, but, if he was looking toward the camera I think this would have been a winner imho.

Very good. Great sense of heat. Only one small issue, the top left of the model's head is a bit blown. Otherwise, near perfect.

Very interesting shot... I appreciate the way he's off centered and really puts off that he's been doing some heavy labor. Tone is perfect.

I envisioned just such an image but couldn't pull it off. If he were looking a bit more toward the camera, it would be perfect but still, very emotive and makes you want to grab a fan. The hot spot on his head hurts it a bit overall but that is also what makes him sweat, so it all works.
