Love the concentration in his face and the the composition in this. As everyone has said, the tone is beautifull. The curves of his hands and fingers so lovingly hold the bow and violin. cracking shot.

Apart from the wonderful light and the balance of composition, this shot shows the concentration of the musician - the furrowed brow, the closed eyes. And the hand on the bow is so light I can almost hear the music. A wonderful EC image.
