Beautiful rhythm and tones. The ghosting around the keys is an issue for me, but this is a splendid capture.

I like how it gives the alluison that the keys are falling.

Like the title. The shot itself is very unique. I'm not sure if I like it or not... which really makes me take an even longer look... looking for the good and the bad. But, that's a good sign, because it means that I am very interested by it. Rather than putting "nice shot", and moving on, this is not a "meh" shot. it is more.
I like the darkness and brighter areas. The way the keys are placed makes for an inviting visual appearance.
After further review, I have found that not only do I like the placement of the keys, the lightness and darkness, but also the color conversion, the shadows, the noise... very well done. 9
