Excellent image carefully and sensitively processed - not an easy one, the lighting (and lack of it) must have been a nightmare. You have him in his own private pool of light, that's effective.

Thank you for your comments Moira it is good that someone on here can appreciate the thought and work that has gone into this image. It is not an Owl or a Robin etc. so it won't do very well.

The virtue of it is that there won't be another near-identical upload on the next line in the Gallery.

In my youth I was briefly a church organist myself. Forty years of 'progress' have evidently not improved the lighting conditions in the organ loft, hence the precariously-balanced anglepoise lamp; photographing the organist can not have been at all easy.

I have no objections to owls or robins but I don't look at photos of them these days. Your photo here is far rarer and more enterprising: a measure of your success is that I can identify (I think) Prelude & Fugue VIII (BWV560) from the Eight Short Preludes and Fugues attributed to J.S. Bach........

Yes Albert,you do have a varied subject matter in your PF,and it is something I could do with myself. Rust goes down like a lead ballon at my camera club,and although it does not bother me,perhaps it is time to take some different images from time to time.A good one here.Now I must dust down my long tom for some Owl and Robin shots !!

This takes me to the thrill of the bass notes rumbling frmm somewhere-- I do love an organ played well-- It would be a nighmare to photograph--finding a pov and enough light-- and of course, everything vibrating!
Lovely image!

Putting Owls and Robbins aside, as a varied PF is always welcome, Albert you have certainly captured the light so well over the organist, his sheet music and keys...a good image of peacefulness. Well shot

Organs are alright unless you had to go to the back of the organ to foot pump the things.

Fine shot though much prefer your excellent birds.

I can almost hear the rumbling notes of the organist in his own private world . So sensitively portrayed Albert . Not just another snapshot xxx
