    Hi kerszkavet, Yeah, I realized the overexposition on the background, the problem was that the musicians were on the shadow, bellow a tent, but the bakground had plenty sun =)

    Hi mrsawyer. Thanks for your words. A long time happened indeed, as you know my mom was with a hard medical condition. She passed away at the begining of this year so I hadn't mood to take any shoots till now, I'm recovering my spirit slowly.
Thanks for your prays and letters of you and another friends of panachallenge that also wrote to my mail last year.
So.. greetings to you all, is good to see you again !!

    This is why we need to see you more often. Forget the ranking, this is a fine shot in my view and I hold to my original comment that the hands really are the story to me here. I wouldn't change a thing.

    For me, the best hands in the picture are on the two farthest trumpeters, and I think a tighter crop would have highlighted them.

    it is a shame the background is so overexposed, but the contrast of the dark clothing must have made exposure tricky.

I like the idea, but wonder if cropping out the face on the left might have concentrated the viewer more on the hands.

could this be a candidate for the next 'edgy' challenge?!

    No matter what others may say, I think the hands are the clear subject here. Nicely exposed.

    I agre with your comments, I should zoom more or crop the image =)

    the instruments on the rh side are not needed,
the crop is a line with gold trumpet as the mark and crop the vertically in front of the horn shape

    My attention is not entirely on their hands. I suggest if you zoom in more and shot it in a different angle.

    A nice enough photo, but insofar as the theme it's more of a photo that happens to have hands in it than one about hands themselves. Had you zoomed on the hands we still would have known they were the hands of a musician. So not bad on technical merits, but not so good on the theme aspect would be my take.
