Rene Magritte once painted a pipe with the words, ceci n'est pas une pipe, written below it. It was a dialog about the painting not actually being a pipe, but more an image of a pipe.

My interpretation of his classic image takes things a little further. No, this is not a piano, it is an image of a piano, but that is not all my piano is to me. While playing, my piano becomes an extension of me. It is a way of conveying how I feel: my love, my anger, my frustration and my peace.

This is not a piano, this is me.

I understand the message, well done... only one thing to be picky.... its "un piano" not "une piano"

Nice shot. IMO, the card is a bit distracting from the actual piano (but I actually do like its placement).

Sorry, I have to give -1 for it being ever so slightly skew. 7. It is a beautiful picture of a piano, though!

Why the paper? I think it detracts... of course, I don't know what it says.

Wonderful composition and perspective.

This is beautiful, I love everything but that little piece of paper. For some reason that takes a lot away from this shot.
