It's a good study of concentration, and I like the motion blur in the left hand as a contrast to the face. The weakness is that the right hand is cut off. I love a good square crop, but I wonder if this was cropped down from a larger file that shows the hand?

Hi Moira. Yes, it was a larger image. It was taken during a recital in a church - and from the back of the church. The top of a pew was in the way and cropping that out meant the cellist's fingers had to go as well Sad
(I would show you the original but I can't insert an image in this comment)

Serious concentration. Listening so hard it shows in the eyes. Very good.

I'm glad you weren't offended by my suggestion. I haven't seen the full frame, but my inclination would be to try a crop that includes enough of the top of the pew to cover where the hand is hiding.
By comparison - if you photograph someone standing in long grass that hides their feet, it's best to include the grass, rather than cut the image off at the ankles.
It's just a suggestion to try. I'm glad you have the larger frame.
And photographing musicians is something that I have missed so much in recent times...
