It's the Grieg Piano Concerto, Cadenza (1st Mvt), for those wondering.

Your focus is so close to the bottom of the shot, I feel it needs to be on the eye glass, moreso in the middle of the image.

Elegant - in my top 10

I'll venture to guess that a number of people don't like the depth of field -- I do. I question a little bit, however, the choice of the focal plain -- I would have pushed it back a little toward the glasses themselves, and not on the earpiece. But that's a preference. The color seems not quite right -- I think this would make a great black and white, but the faint maroonish cast to everything doesn't seem appropriate to me.

This shot is excellent. The focus at the front leads you to the blurry-ish background and forces you to look back to the foreground. As a musician, it was obvious to me immediately that it was upside down, but I figure someone will question it.

Beautiful, and subtle!

Simple, elegant and well photographed.

All that you need for a great photo.

One of my 10 best.

nice photo, the only advise i have would be to make the right bottom corner more in focus
05/15/2002 05:47:00 PM
very nice. i like this photo because it's unique.

Although I am a fan of 64th note arpeggios and trills. Its not grabbing with respect to the challenge subject. Technically its a great shot with good depth of feild, detail, and angle of shot. I have to give this more credit for the shot than the challenge.

note the nice macro shot. Is this violin or piano music? Its in good focus, thou I bet some people will have a hard time telling itts upside down.
Although you do have the poco shoing that it is.

very nicely done.

Nice and simple. I like it, but I would prefer to have a greater DOF so that the glasses are in focus.

I would prefer the focal point farther back -- to see the glasses more clearly.
05/14/2002 05:43:00 PM
Nice detail. Interesting concept. I like what you kept in the photo and what you left out.
05/14/2002 05:09:00 PM
I can't believe you chose THAT piece for a background. There's no accounting for taste in music. Your taste in composing macro photos is pretty good though! you get an A#!
05/14/2002 04:14:00 AM
Pretty. I'd rather have the lenses at front and in focus with the temples receding into the blur.
05/14/2002 12:49:00 AM
A "classic" style photo...
05/13/2002 05:07:00 PM
this picture is extremely creative, and brilliantly executed. my hat is off to you sir. : )

I really like this concept. I was planning on doing something similar with a bible and a pair of rim-wire glasses but I didn't do it... Very nice!
05/13/2002 08:22:00 AM
Reminds me of that "Rind Photo" that won that challenge few back.
05/13/2002 08:06:00 AM
So crisp and elegant...
05/13/2002 07:41:00 AM
Very nice!

Moonlight Sonata? Not much to go on.
