- A wonderful and exceptional photograph. The light and pose of the banjo player are stunning. In my humble opinion, the musician shouldn't be centered in the photo. In post processing I would remove the white spots in the background. The vehicle is interesting but distracting. Darkening the background would solve that.
- Background is a distraction but image is really great. Changing angle and cropping would really improve the impact. Nice focus and exposure.
- What an interesting subject! The light on Busker is very good. The background seems distracting. A stronger vignette and some post processing darkening of the highlights behind Busker would help the image. The backpack area could be cropped. Busker's hand and banjo neck are close to the right side of the image. Cropping the backpack area will move Busker to the left.
