This lonely musician is playing his instrument to an audience rather disinterested of his lovely serenade.
Eh! That's a matter of luck! Maybe he's on the wrong track of his career!!!

Hi Francis

Love this! your POV is very interesting, and the curves of the stairs are great. and a very interesting trio of people, each engrossed in their own activity. well done

He does look like a lonely musician, it's too bad I like sax and this reminds me of New Orleans. I like your high pov. Good dof with sharp details. Very nice color. Well done, tfs.

Fantastique captage et cadrage, quel effet ces courbes sur ces escaliers, sueprbe, avec les personnage, la grande classe, super.

Bravo et amitié


Great shot Francis. Love the perspective and soft lighting. Sharp detail of a great composition. I can hear his lonely song. TFS, Lori

Felt a bit dizzy when I first opened up this shot :-) Unusual point of view, nice observation of lines and I think the musician is the icing on the cake - another seated tourist wouldn't have been so interesting. Well seen.

Salut Francis

Voici une bonne prise de vue en contre plongée. Le musicien, la lectrice et l` oberservateur. Tout les trois réunit par cet escalier en courbe.


Hello Francis,

I think you chose a perfect point of view here, one that completely suits the subject! I also admire the composition and the exposure.

Best wishes,
