Très belle image animée et colorée, ce musicien qui enchantent le rues, le captage latéral est mangigique, ce contraste entrel le plan coloré et le fond NB, sueprbe.

merci et amitié


I like the color differentiation effect which you managed to give this wonderful scene with a good use of PP work, Carlos!

The musicians spreading color and charm into the lives of the folk, are well shown through colored choice, however, the listeners (in B&W) are on their way to be colored but later on, it was my feelings when I saw this work.

Great work!

Have a nice weekend,

Hi Carlos,

A good contribution to the music theme, these street scenes can be very interesting. I like what you've done with the selective desaturation, it helps to put our attention on the artists.

Best regards,

Ola Carlos!
Nice picture. This is an usual scene in all cities :)
Very good POV. I like the contrast between the colorful part and the B/W part very much: you had an excellent idea.
Have a nice W/E.
Ciao! vanda

dear Carlos,
the contrast between colored musicians and de-saturated audience people is interesting and impressive,
maybe different people feel different time, though they are at same time,
and the musicians look both traditional and modern, it is strange scene,
then back people look being another planet...
thank you for your wonderful picture,

Hola Carlos,

This is a great photography and contribution for Friday's theme.
Very interesting daily life scene.
Excellent sharpness and I like your PP work.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hi Carlos,
A well managed multicoloured image with the monochrome BG.Interesting image showing the musicians with their instruments in the foreground and the spectators gathering and showing somee interest.Great depth and well exposed MF.Artistic work which could portray the times of a few years before [BG] as opposed to the madern times[FG.]

Greetings Carlos,
I like your seperation of colour & B&W it really helps show of the musicians from the spectators & surroundings. Good image for the theme "Music"

Hello Carlos,

Jolie contribution , avec une composition d'instruments variés et insolites.
Le N&B des spectateurs, met encore plus en avant le groupe de musiciens.
Le parvis de l'église je suppose être ceci! donne une gentille armature à la composition.
Merci pour le partage. Bon dimanche.
Amical bonsoir.

Bonjour Carlos,
Très jolie scène festive. J'aime bien l'angle de la composition qui nous permet de voir les gens qui se sont arrêtés pour écouter. C'est une bonne idée d'avoir dé-saturé les couleurs entre les musiciens et le public.
merci et bonne journée.

Quite an absorbing posting Carlos made more prominent by the selective desaturation. One sometimes get confused the extent of desaturation but I think you did alright here. The textures from the wall are nice and so is the sharpness and ambiance. Regards.
