Good morning Peter, cracking shot, great composition and light, very well done.
the pianist concentrates--perhaps checking the intonation---
Note also, the plain, gated pews--so typical of certain New England churches!
a grand image!
Nicely composed shot Peter, and a well chosen exposure and timing.
good morning peter
wonderful light and detail super comp and colours a cracking capture nice one
Like the light coming through the window Peter.
A very nice capture Peter. He looks pretty bundled up to be comfortably playing the piano. .........Sandy
Hi Peter, this is a perfectly composed image excellent but I believe if you could have cropped the window bars which is on the top of the piano player then it would have been more impressive. Nevertheless this is also an excellent image..
A wonderful study in concentration in this beautifully captured image. The subdued light, of course, really adds a most important element to the "feel" of the whole thing. One of your best, I think.
A nice clean sharp shot click love the subtle light
Well composed, Peter, an excellent image. Carol
I quite agree with the comment made by Ann (EAS) - nice one Peter
Nice image great light , well captured.
Peter you have really captured the peacefulness of the surroundings and well shot
Your image is a pleasure to the eye. Beautiful light as well.
Good light and a good angle to take a shot of the piano.
Since this is a closeup, the attention is drawn to the man/pianist more than the piano.
Your title suggests that you wish to accentuate the piano, not the man.
A "conceptual cropping" would then be more suitable i.e. try to zoom out a bit.
If you allow more window behind the piano, the vertical light will draw the eye down in a linear direction to the piano so that the accent is on the piano not on the man. Close cropping as you have done here makes it a portrait.
It all depends on your intent.
As it stands now, we see a balding man a wintercoat sitting by a piano. Sometimes a human element enhances a shot, sometimes it distracts. Its a fine balance. A young woman's silhouette by the window, or tracing the keyes with her fingers, or a child by a piano would be more charming... just a suggestion, and only my opinion.
Keep up the good work.
As a pianist I just love this one ... scarf and all
Good shot Peter, nice exposure
Great portrait of the pianist - a real study in concentration. Works well, with lots of interest.
Lovely shot, Peter. Wonderful composition and light. A true study of concentration with a wee smile escaping from his lips ( true enjoyment. ) Beautiful work, beautifully captured
Take care, Pauline
nice low light shot Peter,looks to be in a chapple or similar.
lovely peaceful shot
I always like this photo, come back many times...It is the atmosphere attracts me back and back again. It reminded me of the museums I visited with the old pianos and instruments, but with a pianist and the light, they brought something into life..
I am not so sure about the window, if you didn't have it, the light on the piano would look a bit strange, maybe you have to do something about it,also perhaps you would lose the atmosphere.But I would like to see a bit more at the bottom of the piano's leg..just a thought, hope that you don't mind, err....really like this one..
