[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was trying to capture the expression of this street instrumentalist at Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu. He was vowing his undivided attention to the perfection of a harmonious tune for the passers-by to get pleasure from, and donate a little penny. His harmonica, the melody and he himself had become a beautiful psyche in aesthetic solitary.

I had deliberately left the dirt spots on the white wall at his back, which I believe goes well with the ‘appearance’ of my subject. As being my experimental work on street and portraiture, I really appreciate your kind comment/critique with thanks in advance.

Hi Ramdan,

You have done very well here with capturing the expression of his face. Very detailed and clear. I do somehow feel that profile slightly more to the side would give a nicer impact, but I think that is a personal preference and it would also depend on the available background. I agree with your including the spots on the wall.

Hello Ramdan
I am drawn to the intense frown showing great concentration and emotions in what he is playing, showing a person who truly loves music.
