Hypnotizing in its magic. Congratulations on the DD.

I love the deep contrast, with the triangle of light in the background and the illumination of his head and the shadow on the underside of his outstretched palm.

The focus is gentle, but seems to suck in the details of his expression. I love the way his eyes are tightly closed, seeming to underline his intense focus and the pleasure he gets from music. Lovely.

It's simply amazing how you can transport the whole message, the feeling of composition and concentration so simple I get so lost in the picture and its atmosphere and don't remember I'm still looking at a photo. It's like you can dive into what's going through his head, his heart.
