Works for me Matt, good light and details in the singer and DOF to take the background out.

Really beautifully styled and sumptuously lit.

Ideally, i think, the crop would have included all of the model's hair - but this is carping, given the perfect placement of the pianist...

Thank you everyone and thank you very much Pete for the award.

Gary, the shoot was at Holdenby House in Northants. A friend of mine who is a makeup artist was shooting a christmas video for a new make up line she is selling and we wanted to get a stills from the day as well. Its a mixture of ambient and tungsten lighting. The band we met at a wedding and they thought it would be good to include them.
