You took the words outta my mouth. I like the image but the out of focus yellow object is a distraction. If you have time try a B / W conversion for comparison.

Maybe a tighter crop to avoid the distracting object and a few tweaks?

FWIW, I like the OOF Yellow object in the foreground. It appears to be a toy or parade trinket or something, which helps tell the story. With it in the shot in conveys that there was some sort of festivity going on. With it in the shot, the main subject comes across as someone who was enjoying the same party as everyone else and might have over indulged.
Without the hint in the foreground, he comes across as an eccentric homeless person passed out in the park.

One conveys conviviality, the other conveys a bit of sadness.

Just my .02, and probably not worth that much.

A balloon maker taking a break. With him passed out you could have easily gone up closer and find a more interesting composition and aesthetics...Better yet skip it...

You also say in color... Don't we see in color?

Just something to thnk about.

I debated this. Rather than a tighter crop or cloning, I hoped it would serve to point to the sleeping balloon maker, imply some movement, joy, celebration in contrast to the sleeping guy. So, we are on the same page.
Thanks for your input.

Sorry it didnt work for you.
I shot at a distance. He was catnapping. Quick momentary doze, then looking up. And I didnt want to embarass him so I sought a shot from a distance.
"color"? Just playing with the series of street images recently shared, BW images. This one aint right for black and white!

Thanks (Bob and Barbara).
Reluctant to do BW since I wanted some of the "festivity" implied by the color balloons, against his lifelessness. Selective color might work, but I usually feel those images look to gimmicky.
