Play it again, Sam       ©2010 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       3rd place, 145 points
1s, f3.6, ISO 80, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Converted from RAW. Cloned a few marks off the old piano to show her at her best, evened out background colour, reduced highlights, resized and sharpened for entry.       Extra Info: This piano was manufactured by the Haines Brothers in New York. If only it could talk, I'm sure there would be tales to tell of bar room brawls, smoke filled taverns, and music that would fill your soul.

    You're right - the model is Michael aka Sherlock, found out in his own disguise... I'll have to ask him to model again, if these are the results I can get!!! :)

    Congratulations! Iwas sure that the pianist was Mepo. I thought he had taken the pic of himself using a tripod.

    Thanks again for the wonderful comments - It was a great opportunity take a moody shot of this old piano and the time it took was well spent

    Good work on the set up of the scene , catching the smoke curl & getting your subject to sit "v-e-e-w-y" still for the 1s exposure , nice narrative too. TT

    Thanks for all the nice comments. The shot took a long time to set up, and I have to thank my non-smoking model for sacrificing himself to keep the cigarette burning. I learned a lot about low light while taking shots and checking out the results - had a great time. I did use a tripod Old Finn, as well as a time delay, to ensure there was no camera shake.

    Did you use a tripod? Nice feeling in the picture and the extra info. In my favorites.

    Very nicely done. [Edit] Every time I look this "regular" shot looks better and better and becomes almost masterful in its execution. Really, a noticeably superior result!
