Default Buskers in Dublin, Ireland

Two buskers, very different styles, on Grafton street today. Still not fully sure about the style of the B&W veresion. I played with the settings, but at the moment, i cant get them to look any better. All C&C appreciated.

I like them too!

I like the first one the best. I think it's the subject...

In the second one, I keep getting distracted by the girl in the white jacket.

Thanks folks. Yea, Its a pitty there are people in the background that are drawing the eye away from the main subject. One of the quirks of street photoraphy I guess, you cant control your environment!

I think they're great- and would like to see some more...! The use of B+W was a good idea here- keeping focus(no pun intended)on the subject matter without distracting colours...

Love that first shot. Honestly, it's the dog in it. It's just an added element to the story which makes it a more interesting photo to me than the second. Don't get me wrong - second one is good too, but the first is just more so than the second. I find myself wanting to know more about his story. Great job!
