excellent .. I like the light very nice...
Nice portrait! Congrats!
Joseph This is a wonderful portrait. The concentration of the man on his music, the delicate movement of the bow, the strong but warm and dappled lighting really supplying a visual counterpoint to the music, the way the light especially catches his fingers. You've cropped beautifully and created an image that's alive and expressive.
Such an interesting use of light, nicely done!
This is niceeeee
6/6 Great capture, perfect lighting, best regards.
Joseph Well the obvious has been stated. The lighting is magic. The gentleman's intense expression is perfect, and the overall impression one gets is that this is a portrait that is about as good as it gets. EXCELLENT.
Joseph, first of all thank you so much for your kind words on my portfolio and for your support on my work. This is a wonderful shot. I agree with David, the lighting is magic and the color too. Love it.
Very good use of light to highlight certain portions to add interest & focus to the subject. Lovely image.
This is a very fine shot. I have the feeling that I hear the sound of the instrument. Very tender, introverted and peaceful image.
Thank you all for the comments. Much appreciated
Wonderful. Perfect using of a light ray. (thank you for your comment on one of my pictures)
For a momet I thought that the violin player is blind. Remarkable work.
... back me to a Union Square NYC memory... one night, one sound, one soul... Hi
Thanks! Fotinos, cherlyn, Bruegel, Vann, Vladimir: Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment on this image. I appreciate your kindness.
Well, I have to ask, not regarding your photo: Is the man playing violin, and is it accustomed way to play violin? Thank you.
Vladimir The instrument is called a viol or viola da gamba, and it's usually played in this position. It's a baroque-period instrument with a fretted neck. And although it looks like a violin or cello, it's really more closely related to various earlier Spanish and Italian guitar-like instruments. There are now some virtuoso players, particularly in Spain and Italy, who have revived the music written for the viol. Hope this explanation helps. Merry Christmas, my friend! Joe
Very good use of light. May be i would drop a little bit the dark on the top but it's just a personal point of view
Excellent image. Love the lighting.
