This is a brilliant shot, Alan: full of feeling and emotion, with a magic background, and sharp as a tack. Excellent work.

Regards.

Delighted to be 30 on this lovely candid Alan. Great look of intense concentration on the flute players face.

This is a wonderful shot. I love the expression you caught on his face and your composition is perfect. I also like your black and white tonalities here.
Award worthy work.

I am in complete agreement with the previous comments. Why? Because the photographer has captured at once the intense concentration of the musician and the intense look of the background photo's subject. Decentering was a good idea because the eye first falls on the huge head (the composition being rather classical, it conveys another profound meaning regarding proverbial Indian culture), then it falls on the musician. Sharpened as it is, it becomes the main subject and links very nicely with the idea of the whole. I think shooting RAW brings out the excellence of a shot of this nature. At any rate, this pack a punch. Bravo.
