A very interesting photograph in that I have never before seen anything high-key at the Newcastle Christmas Market!
The image is totally natural, the girl is clearly immersed in her playing. Eyes, arm and bow are parallel: this suggests both an accomplished fiddler and an accomplished photographer, for the angle of the composition works really well too. The focus looks to be spot-on the eyes amid the necessarily shallow depth of field. I like the murky figure in the background, a reflection I think; my only niggle would be the slightly blown highlights on the fiddle belly and fingerboard and the girl's hair. But extremely well taken in undoubtedly difficult circumstances.

Thank you everyone who gave this photo their attention!

Thank you very much for your kind comments, and in-depth analysis of this shot, Bill!
