Default Clown Entertaining a Circle of People. Original & Variat

I took this shot in summer, during the Buskers Festival in Ferrara, an annual meeting of Street Artists.
Info at http://www.ferrarabuskers.com/index-en.html

I left the shot on my hd for some time cause it was taken by night and it was a little bit blurred.

Now I came back to it :



P.S. :
- despeckle
Layer 1
- clown's selection copy and paste.
- some burn tool brushes on the dress folders to enhance depth
Layer 0
- a small motion blur

Oh, Sergio, this is one of those shots we probably all have: the one that almost was. Had it not been blurred, had you included the clown's feet...

Doesn't it make you wish we could travel backward in time to do it again?

An almost great shot, and in spite of that, I really like it.

Wonderful effect, brtsergio...

A larger-than-life "still life" of the artist with his audience
in motion...

Unusual...

Thank you all for your comments.
Yes Barbara, I agree with you : it is an almost one !
I sent this shot to Klaus for an opinion of him.
He said that the real subject for him were the clown and the boy staring at him.
He suggested a black and white and a different cut which I like very much.
He also suggested some noise to hide blur but I preferred to clean this picture with NeatImage ( thanx Klaus for instisting on trying it !).
Here it comes :



Starting from this new interpretation of the shot I have made a vertical cut :



And I have made three other variations :
