Overall, nice photo. A little less pressure with your right thumb would help it to not look broken. The black jacket over your left shoulder certainly fits the era, but with it blending so well into the background, it looks really strange. As if there's a large chunk missing from your neck and shoulder, and the fingers have been cut off at weird lengths. Good luck.

nice balanced composition and a striking pose.

Good idea. I like the way you prepared for this shot. Technically very close to perfect. The hat is a bit dark, I would love to see it easily instead of looking up and down the screen. Overall is a good photo though :)

Great theme. Black and white is very classic.

You should've tipped your head up just a bit to where we (the viewer) could see your eyes. BB

This is an excellent shot but the hat and coat get lost in the black background - needs some backlighting. Well cone.

great shot. I'm really glad you did this in b/w and didn't have your eyes show.

Cool idea man... can't really see the outline of the cap but I think it's more my laptop that it is your tones. 8

You could use some separation between the hat and background.

It may be my laptop screen, but I think there needs to be more contrast between the background and the subject.

This is by far the worst shot of the in the challenge. The trumpet is barely in focus, the shirt is blown out, the subject is hideously deformed (some kind of leprechaun from Tibet...?), and the whole thing is a an ugly shade of yellow.
If you look closely you can even make out fogel standing naked in the corner!

On a scale of 1-10, I rate this stink-deluxe-crap-berlinger-shit-dork-I respect your country.

great choice of color and i just love the outfit and the instrument. The black jacket could have a bit more light where the hand holds it. All in all, nice shot
