This was a delightful concert, really unforgettable. Here in Spain we are having every summer better jazz concerts. I'm a fan of jazz, so I'm very happy. This year we went to a city near where we live (Xbia) just to see the concert. This concert was of one of the biggest pianists ever, Hank Jones, with bass (George Mraz) and a drummer comping a great vocalist, Roberta Gambarini.
And suddenly Hank Jones says there is a surprise, and introduces ROY HARGROVE, IMO one of the best young trumpet players. The concert longed more than 2 hours and was so funny... Love it.
And I could seat on the second row of seatings, so with my 70-300 could arrive very near... A really lovely night.

This is the last entry to vote on for me.

Good control of lighting; I just wish his thumb didn't look like it was about to poke his own eye ;>þ

Composition: 9 - Almost perfect, the right shoulder touching the frame is the only distraction
Technical: 9 - Again, almost perfect. I'd have liked it a little brighter in the highlights
Creativity: 6 - Not the most unique angle but the closeup and the background are good
Appeal: 9 - I really like this shot :)

Overall Calculated Average Score: 8
