Something, as they say, completely different from me - not a saddhu or a sandbank in sight. No flash - using lens wide open in what light there was & hence shallow DoF. See what you think.
Works for me. The shallow DOF helps I'd say.
looks mighty fine on my new Eizo!
Excellent shot, neighbour!
I like it overall, dof, clear focus on one person, dark non distracting background.
I like this very much. Available light is always a winner in my book. The tones are great; the plane of focus is on the nearer girl's face and includes the bridge, tailpiece and lower bout of the instrument while her bowing arm and wrist, together with the other girl's fingers, are tolerably in focus.
The essence of the story, if I might put it thus, is in the second girl's face. She is paying rapt attention to her leader - though perhaps she is uneasy at playing second fiddle...
Would love to see this in B&W
an exceptional image.
Thanks for the comments. I always saw the shallow DoF as a bonus. It's one of things I love about prime lenses. I'm with you on available light, Bill (although that's probably because I feel inadequate when it comes to flash / indoor lighting techniques) - thanks for the extensive commentary. I thought about b & w Ange - and I might try it yet - but the rich colour of the violins was one of the features that appealed to me in the image
Outstanding, dof used superbly
Fantastic image, great dof and a dark background works so well. Carol
Great image here is my vote
Wow, this is great quality - the dof, the composition, the rich colours. Wonderful image.
I like it - lovely composition.
The image (to me) seems to be giving out the message of the muscian at the back looking on in awe. Dont know if thats what you were try ing to achieve, but i think its a very powerful shot, enhanced by the lighting.
Recommend viewing large.
Lovely work Rob, well deserving of the HC.
This is a wonderful piece of work Rob, the rich colours, lighting and dof is just right, pleased you got an HC for this!
A beauty and the DOF works well, congrats on the HC
Thanks for the comments and to Pete for the HC!
Wow!!! Fantastic shot!!!
awarding winning shot IMO
PS: just noticed it already has an award well done
This is a wonderful study Rob; the light completely isolates the subjects; I love the detail and rich tones and the DOF is spot on for me with the area of focus mirroring the theme of the scene.
Very deserving of the HC in my opinion - big congrats
Superb image,really like the use of Depth of Field
A really good study - wonderful light and use of dof.
I like how the two bows are going at different angles, somehow that's the dot over the "i" for me.
Excellent Rob. I'm so glad this was awarded an HC.
excellent !!! well deserved HC
