Vadim Arshavsky
Lovely image, congrats!

E. de Juan
El encuadre apoyado con ese fondo de columnas es simplemente fantástico. El toque de color de la caja, y esa especie de blanco y negro natural, igual de buenos. Me ha encantado, es todo un fotón. Salut.

Armindo Lopes
Different and nice. I really like it. Tones and DOF are quite good. Rgds.

Huseyin Gurses
The purple colour of the box stands out in the near bw tones. Well composed.

El Porte-Bonheur
Thank you B.C., Lawrence, Armino, Jordi, Hussein! Thank you dear friends for letting me know your opinions. I really appreciate your contribution. Have a nice week-end! To Jordi:.......... Indeed compared to the 'Ramblas art works' this gentleman is certainly less attractive. However, in my proposal he should be seen as being integrated in the total 'marble columns' concept and not as stand alone 'tableau vivant'

Anabela Sequeira
Excellent capture, mood and tonality! Nicely done. Um abraço.

Paolo Bevilacqua
Centrata sia nella luce che nel soggetto. Composizione raffinata e ben presentata.

Keith Lancaster
Hi El Excellent find in such a photogenic position....Great DOF and exposure.....Regards

Marjorie Smith
El.. Teriffic composition and mood...hope he makes a few bucks...must be stifling in there...Marjorie

Mauro Moroni
Non so se è la foto che fa il titolo o il titolo che fa la foto, ma il risultato è come sempre assai piacevole. Complimenti El (6/6 anon) Mauro

Steve B.
What a way to make a living. Good job.

Gallego Caldas Jordi
Composición y color, perfectos como siempre. 7/7a. PD.- La estatua humana es una pena, en comparación con las obras de arte de la Ramblas de Barcelona.

Jim Cowan
What a wonderful image, full of viewer interest. Although I believe this is a mime artist, my first impression was that it was sculpture. If a street performer then sculptor's should take note, if a sculpture then mime artists should take note. Either way, this is a very entertaining photo.

Linda Liebl
I echo the comments of those who have commented previously. This image certainly invites discussion and imagination. Well done! Regards, ~~~~~~~~~~~~Linda

Fabrizio R.
Tecnicamente eccellente ed emotivamente grandiosa! Bravissima El, sai cogliere molteplici aspetti e renderli immagini uniche, buon weekend, Fabrizio

Ovidiu Posta
Powerful composition, the details in whites are amazing, 7/7 an, all the best!

Paul Roger Timms
One thing about a mime artist, the perfect subject when so still. The colours here complement each other so well and the money pot also, perfect. Beautiful shot El.

Heider Alward
Very strong concept, El this is very well done as usual ! Best Regards and Keep posting.

Warren Kaplan
Marvelous photo!! I love street mimes!!

Joaquin Tornel
El, otro testimonio de nuestras calles, ese blanco es inmaculado. Gran trabajo. Un saludo y un abrazo, Joaquin.

Excellente capture de cet amuseur de rue, la composition est parfaite avec les colonnes et le flou qui font bien ressortir cette personne.

Cynthia Jean
Hi El What a great find and such an interesting angle. Lovely lighting too ;). Have a good day

Sonia Mason
What a great presentation! His profile and posture agaist the straight columns is very eye catching. Perfect DOF. I think I would like this in B&W as well. Great work

Oskar Papierz
Very good idea, perfect done. Best regards.

Sonali De
Excellent naming and composition. Wonderful work. Best regards.

Kaushik Chatterjee

Takuji Takahashi
It is wonderful. It has strength though it is a casual air feeling.

Radu Carp
Super As usual a very good eye to see different life aspect and caught here so well,best regards Radu.

Rueda Palomares Agustin
Podria estar perfectamente en la rambla de Barcelona, buen trabajo con ese marco de columnas y el detalle de color. Abrazo y eso.

Christine R
Fine composition, beautiul process. Best regards Christine

Bob Kurt
Great shot!

Chris Panagiotidis
The concept and the materialization of this shot, El, is incredible. I don't spare my enthousiastic words because I mean them. The granit columns is the perfect match for this living statue, enhancing the mood with their depth and selective focus.Even the purple money-box couldn't have been better , colour-wise.With your permission , it goes in my faves' folder. Best regards and many compliments. Chris

Charles Mifsud
Nice The angle with the columns in parallel turns this ordinary day scene into a mystic shot....Charles

Dimitris Vasiliou
Hi El A very good photo with excellent tones and clarity.I like the perspective. Warm regards.

Vicente Concha
Hola El. Independientemente de la estetica del personaje, me gusta mucho la composicion dominada por las verticales y la perspectiva. El recipiente de las propinas es la guinda de la composicion. La caracterizacion del mimo vestido de blanco dirige la mirada al gesto y como no a ese ojo negro en busca de una expresion facial. Enhorabuena, buen fin de semana. Vicente.

Sreten Pantelic
Brilliant composition and wonderful mood. The color of the box dominates making this scene so special. Great work. Congrats, El.

Jose Ignacio Saez de Ugarte
Magistral, El. Preciosa luz y color que casi parece b/w. Abrazo y eso.

Tony Hadley
Impressive and up to your usual high standards. The first time I saw something like this was in the streets of Germany a number of years ago. At that time I was mostly a slide film user so I must look for those images to see if it worth posting here. We don't have much of that here in Montreal - at least - i have not seen it. All the best. you have been very kind to me recently re ratings and i don't want to lower your average so I will see if I can find it another way.

Bettie Coetzee
compelling So often one sees these mime artists, but to capture one the way you did here, that is the art of seeing. Toast to you, El Porte-Bonheur

Bonjour El Porte-Bonheur Une composition que j'adore avec une belle maitrise de l'exposition et j'aime beaucoup l'arrière très graphique avec les colonnes, bravo à toi c'est du très joli travail! Amicalement Eric

Eddie D. M.
Excellent shot, good composition! When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it's Castro's ghost... :P

Art Xanthopoulos
excellent shot El. I always enjoy viewing your work due to its technical applications. well done

Francisco González Carbonell
7/7 Magnifica.

Cherlyn .
Sharp perception. The white plays off very well against the grey pillars & DOF also very well used.

El Porte-Bonheur
Thank you very much to all of you! I appreciate your supporting comments very much. Best regards, El

Yalçın Varnalı
The rhytme, perspective and graphic are very good. And of course the subject who gives the life to the photo. Excellent.
