    Thanks for the kind comments. I took three shots of the scene, two without the figure and one with him, it was a kind of candid shot, I needed to be quick.

    The negative was printed with no cropping and I also printed it down quite heavily, however this unfortunately exposed the signs of uneven development (not so careful agitation). A straight print, as I needed to be quick, although I believe it would have benefitted from some dodging and burning.

    I admit I'm not fully happy with this image, I couldn't decide for a long time whether I should print it soft to reveal detail or to go for a full graphic effect with only a few shades of grey. Maybe I'll come back to it at a later time.

    There isn't a long period of time a card doesn't arrive, this constant flow of cards in my mailbox is a real pleasure.

    JSt: This photo reminds me of many family gatherings with my aunt playing the piano.

    djhopscotch: Your card arrived with quite a few dirty fingerprints of postmen on it that I couldn't recognise for a short time as they blend so well with the micropattern of the floor.

    I agree with Mike about correcting for the verticals, although I might have simply taken it from a lower point. I like very much the crop, there seems to be a good balance which remains interesting and not overly relaxed.

    Thanks!

    28/30. Best round ever. Black Dog - just don't know what to say. Everything about the picture says perfection. The framing of the white border the range of tone, the depth of field and lighting. Here is a card that I need to lift my game up to. Jake your card (for me) was worth the wait.

    djhopscotch polished(floor) card made it thru the backlog.
    jst's card made it as well. Strange, my brain has a little trouble with the focal plane running diagonal across the card.

    How do I tell Jake. You card came with a quote from Tom Waits.

    Blackdog's card has made it to my mailbox here in Bangkok.
