I categorized this under Documentary because it is a follow-up to

the image I posted in my Katrina folder named Quiet Keys. I was

motivated to do this after one of my PN friends commented on Quiet

Keys and I replied that I now have a new piano. So, it isn't meant

to be a great work or art (none of my stuff really is) but thought

I'd get your comments.


Thank you,

I like this in colour with a lower contrast. The colour adds warmth to the image and the lower contrast both adds to that and give the entire image a softer feel which seems more musical and less clinical than the harder tones of the B&W version. I prefer the image more however oriented the way it is in the B&W version over it being flipped in the colour version. Perhaps just because that is how I first saw the photo. The reflected hand creating a third hand fills out that portion of the keyboard nicely and adds interest as well as bolstering the composition structurally. My only suggestion would be to perhaps darken down the area behind the piano where it looks like I can see a wall and a baseboard. If this area was more in line with the level of darkness in the foreground it would maintain that sense of the piano and player being isolated from the world around them.

Kirk, it is a nice work. I like the colored one, has more life in it. another possibility I see is to crop the upper part to a squar in order to give the stage to the playing hands, without the bg. Nice work.

Gordon, I did think of burning that wall out - kind of like our conversation on your sunset pic - if you, yourself question it, it is likely so.


Pnina, may have a solution that addresses that bothersome wall.


I guess three heads are better than one!


Tony, thanks for the comment.

I really like how your photo's side by side present themselves Kirk! Very attractive!!. Comparing B/W to color I will agree on the color... Both give it's own mood. Nicely done!! Kindest Regards Andrea

Beautiful and quite original b/w-color composition, Kirk. Nice scene with an excellent mirror effect. Good work! Best regards!
