Frank, when I view images of guitarist, I am immediately drawn to the facial expression/emotion. There is a slight acceptable expression IMO, but I would hope you took more of a variety for that purpose alone. Maybe the shutter speed should have been slightly faster because his hands are slightly more blurred than I would want and I understand about showing the hand motion, but thats just my thoughts for you to think about for another time. Overall tho, I do like the image.

Thank you Mr. Chinn...this guy never showed any expression, just hid behind those sunglasses...hand motion is hard to get perfect ain't it, sometimes they move slow and sometime a bit faster. Thanks for the tips and I appreciate you taking time to comment.

Agree about getting rid of the white above his head, either by crop or PS repair. Crop should work fine. Getting the hands sharper on a guitarist is always best but sometimes not possible due to light or angle or both. You can probably mitigate it some with judicious creative processing, with dodge/burn/vignette/blur. It's bones are interesting enough as a street shot to work with some and try to make more of it.
