A photograph of a hand playing Beethovan's Piano Sonata No. 23, "Appassionata". Have a listen, and surely you will agree, it is nothing less than extraordinary!

My major complaint for the shot is the crease in the music. I took more with the crease gone, but none came out as well and I'm out of time.

indeed an extraordinary work. I think I'll go play it right now on your inspiration. Nice idea with the hand moving (I wish we'd seen both hands in the shot), to add a dynamic element here.

Appassionata is the most beautiful thing I've ever heard in my life.
10 for the beauty of it =)

Good job at capturing motion. Overall, your photo has too much red. This might have worked better as a b/w but it's hard to tell with the excessive red.

Nice take and nice shot- I have to say the first thing I noticed was the crease at the bottom of the book. I also think it would be a better shot if the keys and the book were a little more white.

Nice shot. I can't read music, but it sure looks complicated :)
