I wonder if I should have taken my Independence entry and submitted it for this challenge instead. I suspect it would have fared better against other cell phone shots. However, I like this shot so we will see how it does.

I like the framing, the silhouettes, and the interaction between the two. I do not like the fact that there is another woman standing behind the guitarist that sort of messes up the lower part of his silhouette. I am not crazy about the "caution" tape in the background. We will see if any voters mention it. They were finishing up laying down a temporary dance floor for a wedding reception.

Nice candid! I don't mind the caution tape and the woman, standing behind the guitarist, doesn't detract. These elements and the composition give it natural feeling.

At first glance, the tilt of his head, together with the chain from the ceiling, make it look like he's hanging.
