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.
