    If the washed-out faces was an attempt at diminishing attention to details of faces to encourage viewing the scene as a whole, kudos! If not, say that was the reason anyway! I like it!

    It's a wonderful vantage shot, not sure if it's high-key enough. Nice shot either way.

    Great lively scene and nice PoV, really like this composition. One of my top favorites. I wonder if I would not have liked it even better if at least on face or shape were in focus...? The blue piano is there, true makes up for it.

    I like the action in this shot as well as the technique. I wonder how it would look in b&w with just the piano in color? Still, a favorite for me.

    Great street scene - love the way you involve us in the activities of all the people in the shot. I think the blown white areas detract from the overall shot but it's in my favourites mostly due to the atmosphere you've captured and the high key element lends a cheerfulness to the situation..

    It's refreshing to see a different angle. Everyone in the photo is so preoccupied with what they are doing, it's almost voyeuristic. Love the idea of letting anyone play the pianos - it must make for some interesting and impromptu sessions.

    What a strange scene - I'm fascinated by the way the people are very evenly spaced out and by the way they all are doing different things. Like it a lot.

    Good original high key photo. Lots going on in the pic. I can feel the activity.

    There is a lot going on in the human department and you pull it off. A top favorite.

    Too many blown highlights to make the top round but still in my top 10.
