Probably won't go over all that well but maybe there will be a few that like it. At the very least this shot will be a break from all the pretty landscapes and blurred taillights. The title was a sad remake of Midnight in Montgomery.

Shot at night with a strobe behind me and speedlite with snoot pointed at guitar. Edited with curves, topaz, convert to b&w, contrast, levels, usm, resize, sfw.

A fellow guitar player! Looks like one hell of an F# you're squeezing off there. I like the facial expression. I make those all the time when I'm playing. That look usually either means you hit it right on, or "Oh crap, that was sour!"

One of my favorites in the entire challenge. I like the choice of grainy B&W look. Very good job and not rated near as high as it should have been IMHO. Good job jminso!

Cool shot. I like the smoke near the ground.

Lack of eye contact means this loses half a point off a perfect 10 for me. However, round 9.5 up and you still get 10.

Awesome lighting, fantastic separation of subject and bg - ticks all the boxes
