I can nit pick a lot about this shot. BUT, it looks really good on the album cover. :P Or at least one of the versions does. Not sure if it was this frame or not.

His name is Bryan McDowell, and if you are a bluegrass fan, you may have heard of him -- or you will. :)

The back of the bench is in crisp focus - but the guitar player is a tad out of focus. Love the composition and crop choice.

Good but that his hand is cropped off and he's facing outside the frame.

While I'm not a fan of the slightly idealised processing, the inspired composition stamps all over my petty bias and leaves it bleeding. Finally a guitar photograph at DPC that is worth a longer look. And this one is worth several, which is why I'm hanging in on my imaginary 2010 wall. Thank you.

I really like this but the tight crop to the right confuses me as it is out of character for this type of shot. I keep wanting to see the rest of the hand and other leg and maybe even the end of the guitar.

I like this composition. It gives it kind of an edgy look.

IMHO, you should have left space to your right so that the person would be looking into the frame.
