Congrats babe! This is really a great shot. The thing is that I love the heart in the backround the most. It just makes this come together.

I'm in awe.
You have more than successfully captured a musician's intimacy with the mic.
This is radiating with emotion.

I love the focus, the colours, the unsharp background with that hearth, that tender expression of him... I even love his beard.

It's just really tender. Had to fav it, even if it wasn't a DD. Congrats anyway.

The coloration is a very good effect. I really like the composition too.

I love the colors, like everyone else said, the detail, and the composition. It must have taken a while to get him at precisely the right moment for this piece.

The blurred background also works perfectly.

BTW: I'd really apreciate it if you'd take a look at my gallery. You're obviously an excellent photographer, and I'd like your opinions on my work.

I photograph at concerts too, do you think your canon 50mm is a good choice for such a job? Because I've read, that this lense has huge problems with the focusing. But it's sooo cheap and I want it! Dang! :D

50mm?

Did you crop it down or were you really that much in his face? I'm guessing the former, but it'd be interesting to know.
Reply
:iconspacesuitcatalyst:
spacesuitcatalyst Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2008
Well, 50mm with the 1.6 crop factor of the XT = 80mm equivalent. So yah. I was still a little in his face though. Don't think I cropped this one...

Ah yeah, I forgot about the crop factor, that makes sense. Haha, great frame though mate

this is amazing.

the DOF, the color, the expression you captured is all very honest and revealing.

being a musician myself, i really enjoy looking at this. it makes me wonder what kind of story i'm telling with my expression when i'm playing.

so, yeah, this is worthy of a daily deviation 100%
