I just know it is not a piano Sandy,so a horn is good enough for me !!
I doubt I would have the puff to blow it though.
Good shot.

a very big horn and probably takes a lot of effort to blow too. Well taken shot and processed Sandy

Well it looks like a horn. But that is not grabbing my eyes. Initially, I am seeing your portrait(?) for the first time(?) besides that small Avatar. And second, the grudge wrapped paper effect is just fantastic

I would have guessed at a hunting horn, and the above link seems to confirm it is. An excellent piece of work, Sandy, beautifully processed and presented Smile

I think French horn is spot on, there was a pub called the French Horn at Pewsey which I saw when on my canalboat holiday, and the horn in the sign looked exactly like this one
