This kid brought a trombone along to cheer for the runners during the Manchester Marathon on Nov 4th. He played the same cheer for 2+ hours. Practice makes perfect, I guess....

I hate when I think I have a better entry than I actually do...expected this higher but I guess some didn't like the coat of the person next to the boy, and others probably thought it staged, or just uninteresting....

Lovely image. I like the B&W here. Nice reflection in the trombone. And I like the Dutch angle, is working quite well.

Nice diagonal composition. The reflections in the trumpet look great. Love the textures. B&W definitely a plus! Well done

The background is very distracting, I would of cropped it tighter to his mouth, great instrument, my child use to play that!

I like the PP!
