Thank you for so many wonderful submissions! I loved the variety of live performance, street musicians, practicing, and static poses. Great stuff... very difficult to pare it down to a final list of reasonable length.

Honorable Mentions, in no particular order:

Love the focus and detachment of Markus' well captured pianist:


The simplicity of luxun54's photo seems to really fit the performer:


Lots of sass in Marisa's capture of these saxy street performers:


High praise for this moment well presented by Jola. I think I'm going to second-guess not ranking this higher:


Love the lighting, setting, and expressiveness of this accomplished cardboard box musician caught in the act by Ken. Perhaps the cover of his first CD?


Really enjoy stevemaz's portrait of a most ambitious street musician -- can picture him lugging a full bass on mass transit to get to his favorite spot:


Two great B&W photos by Peter that I really enjoy. One for its nontraditional "from behind" perspective, and the other for its tremendous dark and hazy mood.


Third Place:
Walter wins the "feel good" award for this whimsical quartet that can't help but make you smile:


Second Place:
Paul delivers pure exuberance in another example of music's ability to steer a group's mood down the right path:


First Place:
Punctuated by lousy weather, Vijay very effectively captures the solitude of present day big city street performance. I am especially impressed that the performer's mood doesn't appear to be dampened. The spirit of music lives on.

Thanks Jeff for picking this picture as the winning entry. It was shot at the peak of pandemic. All alone in The Times square NYC, he was playing a sad tune. Congratulations to other winners and everyone for contributing and being a part of this competition.
