It has a lovely tonal quality and the small boy in the background gives scale.

Definitely woth uploading Ian, but not as it is.


For me, - and Ive just seen the comment above, the presence of the boy behind throws scale off completely, as hes fully in focus, and much lower. if we saw why hes lower ( I dont think hes that small, - another optical illusion this shot has)


So it can work with either of two mods which Ive loaded. One you remove the boy, as he is not adding, hes subtracting; OR, you apply agressive box blur to all expect the violin player, making him fully the centre of attentions, with the boy as a spectator, unfocused.



regards


Willie
