How did I do?
Lens: Tamron 18-200 Camera: Pentax K70 Photo Location: Old Town Orange, California ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8 

What do you think? I cropped this one a bit and played with exposure. Also I think I adjusted clarity and vibrance just a touch.

Great photo! I think I would crop the left side of the picture right up to that metal box in the background. To my eye, it would put the musician better in the left third and emphasize the leading line of the building face.

I like the overall processing. I don't like the square crop. The building plaque on the right side is competing with the main subject for attention. In addition, all of the vertical lines in the image suggests a vertical crop. This will help to isolate the subject as well.

Off topic, but how did he sound? An interesting bass and some non-classical technique.

I like your crop. Cutting out the irrelevant background and then the audience can focus on the musician.

I think your overall compostion is good, the right things are in the right part of the frame (considering the classic 1/3 rules).
But there are several things competing for attention though, the plaque on the right and the blue building on the left draw away from the musician.

I would go for a narrower, vertical crop like others suggested (I would also crop away the blue line on the left in the edit by atupdate)

Actually from what I heard he was pretty good. Just shot was actually taken from about 50 yards away so I didn't hear him until I got a lot closer but he was decent at least

He certainly has a look that needed to be photographed. Too bad it wasn't at night...and foggy.
