Default Street Drummer on 34th Street (NYC)

Compared to last time (Street Drummer on 42nd Street), I got more time to set up my shot this time -- no cop came to give the street drummer the boot.

Also, on 34th Street, I'd say the crowd is more workers out on their lunch breaks than tourists so there were actually more fellow New Yorkers dropping some change in the bucket. (I found myself doing the same afterward.) Whereas with the 42nd Street Drummer, people were just stopping to look and snap photos.

Processed in DPHDR5 then applied Topaz Adjust on the clouds and Topaz Detail on the foreground. I used Topaz Remask to lift off the drummer and woman from the middle exposure for maximum clarity.



Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

very nice work !! really like the use of shutter and motion while still maintaining the sharpness of the drummer and the tipper,, love the wide angle and the converging of lines of the buildings works well here

Thank you, Istvan84, jaharris1001, brad, JohnG.

#2) This was my first shot before noticing I can include the Empire State Building with my wide angle lens.

The woman's bag is "Jack's World". It is the cheapest department store in Manhattan. (They sell great stuff, though, my wife and I always go there whenever in Manhattan.) Times are hard but the woman still finds change for a fellow New Yorker.

Great shot! I have always wondered how you get the subject sharp in these kind of pics. Do you ask them to be still?

Best regards/Daniel

Thank you, Daniel, Dave, Hards80.

Daniel, they're mannequins just kidding...

I think they look sharp because I blurred out (with motion blur) the somewhat distracting pedestrians.

#3) Not really panhandlers, but a band selling their CD in Times Square. I blurred out the guy holding coffee on the left to make the band stand out more.
