Excellent use of a shallow dof with good sharpness and she must know the musical piece off by part as the stand is empty of the notes. Well composed placed her on the vertical 1/3 axis. Tfs!

Excellent portrait of the violinist concentrating on her music. The image is nicely illuminated and you have succeeded very well in lifting from the rather busy background.

Bonjour, cher Rob,
Un grand merci pour cette présentation ayant trait à cette artiste de rue qui vit pour la musique.
Merci également pour les liens, je suis allé voir, je suis conquis.

You captured a really eye-catching portrait. Maybe because of the slight amount of grain, or the color cast, this photo resembles me to an analog photograph.

I can imagine the sound of the violin in the park, with birds singing along as a choir...
Fair distance provided the lady player her privecy, and yet - close enough to see her in action.
Fine outcome and a nice idea.
My best regards,

I like this photo of the lady playing in Central Park. You took it from a good angle which gives us a good view of her rather muscular arms, trained by 42 years of playing the violin. For a photo like this her arms and instrument are more important than her face. The WS gives us a better idea of the environment and I wish we could have many more sound files like the one you provided. It's a very interesting addition to the upload.

Tu continues avec ta très belle série. Il faut bien dire que ce ne sont pas les sujets d'intérêts qui manquent à New York. Beau point de vue au dessus de l'épaule de la violoniste.Où est passé sa musique?

Violinist in park makes impression.
Good frame and excellent depth.

A very nice portrait of the violinist, the woman has a rack for the notes but she plays without notes, a very nice scene, well captured

Two interesting photographs which give close-up and wider details of the violinist. Like you, my favourite is the main post, though I do appreciate the extra details.
Your use of shallow dof makes feel that we are sharing the experience, the oof b/g adding contextual information.
I loved the one experience that I had in Central Park. There were guitarists, small choirs, dancers, etc. and I could have remained all day!
My warm regards,

Sorry maar ik luister echt graag naar muziek, en mijn vrouw zijn al o zoveel jaren dansers, nu wat minder acrobatisch door de leeftijd. Ik heb nog muziek gedraaid om te dansen.
Maar zelf een noot muziek is niet aan mij besteed.
vandaar dat ik zoveel bewondering heb voor muziekkanten.
Mooie foto goed gedaan, bedankt.
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

Lep pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad sa lepom fotografijom u radionici, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa zenom koja svira na violini, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Lepo je videti i uzivati u muzici.
Sve najbolje, srecno.
Beautiful view of the moment, a good text ...
Good work with beautiful photography workshop, a beautiful place and shown the moment a woman who plays the violin, good contrast and sharpness, beautiful colors, beautiful moment captured. Nice to see and enjoy the music.
All the best, good luck.

Good night and happy weekend.
All the best from the south of Spain.

You have captured well the violinist in action. The point of view is shopwing the detail of her violin and of her clothing. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Always a great joy to see (and hear) musicians performing on the street. I have seen many guitarists, violinists, even piano players. Sometimes they are good artists, as we can see here. Excellent portrait.

A good moment caught and love the 'feel' to this pic and great too the way you have isolated the violinist
There's so much here in a single shot that could be spoken about, so I'm just going to say it works superbly,
Just respect anyone who can play an instrument...
Periko (6398) 2017-04-21 12:23
Beautiful! She is isolated from the background and that is good. Perfect sharpness.

Zo zie je maar hoe belangrijk het is om duidelijk te adverteren als je een stukje in het park gaat spelen. Central Park is een plek om vele, heel diverse mensen tegen te komen. Mooi portret van deze violist in actie.
mkamionka (40123) 2017-04-27 13:33
excellent portrait of a musician at work! You have captured the lady in a wonderful pose. She is so focused on the music and the shallow depth of the field makes everything else less important.
