Nice job of the fife player. I do think I like the right half of the background better than the left half. For some reason the repeated pattern in the left half doesn't seem to "fit." Good photo overall though.
I looked at the photo before noting Larry's comment and thought the same thing. Nice exposure but, if you could have placed that greenery behind him it would really have had more impact. Who knows, you may have tried and there was a white elephant on the right side. At least you took a photo to post. More than I can say about me.DHaass
The face is sharp and the background is blurred. Have you considered burning (darkening) some of the brighter circles on the right? The white strip on the left may give some balance to his white shirt and hair but it pulls your eyes away from the man. I know that pictures in the middle of the day while on vacation are difficult.
Williamsburg is one of JD's and my favorite places to visit. I find it most interesting to see how are forefathers got their start. As to your photo, I really like your dynamic orientation of the camera versus the subject. Taking a photo like this, you can very easily make the subject look very static. Your camera position gives the photo a feeling of motion.The two sides of the background do not bother me as much as it bothers Larry and DHaass except for the really bright areas on the right side. I might try to tone them down some by making the right side a little darker and desaturating the color.Nice photo.
