Fantastic strong portrait, reminds me of Richie Havens for some reason, although he's a guitarist!

Wonderful portrait, first off, with just enough detail of the eyes visible to give character plus enigma. The very telling detail of the reflected keyboard could easily be a distraction, a gimmick, but it's so subtle and discreet here.

Wow, this is a superb portrait. Even without the reflection, the crop, tones and detail make it a great shot. But the reflection really add that icing on the cake. Fab, fab shot.

What an excellent portrait!

It's a great shot as it is, but it's the reflection of the keyboard that makes this, shedding light into the personality of your subject.

A well deserved EC. Smile
