Congrats on your top 20 finish René.
This was an absolute pleasure to view and am in awe as to it's quality.
One of the best shots to grace this site in a very long time.

Was this posed or at an actual recital? If posed this is a damn good shot. If candid, this is one of the best lit shots of it's type that I've seen. Kudos on a great capture either way!

Very nice tones. By moving to your left it might have been possible to get a bit of separation between her and the voilin player and made of a bit stronger framing.

What a superlative study of light & mood. Great tone & detail.
Visual perfection. Added to my favorites and in my pick of the top ten best.

Great lighting - good capture of the girls concentration - the earring is a little distracting, but not a whole lot you can do about that :)

Extraordinary lighting, composition, color, everything. For a subject that I would usually have no real fascination with, you have created something I just have to sit and look at. This is pro work and I am sure you know that.

A lovely portrait! I hope she has that one hanging on her wall! I like the angles in the lines. The non-centered composition. The use of dark negative space to force you into the subject. The shallow depth of field. Very nice! Good luck in the challenge! (finished voting, returning to say that this is one of my top picks!)

This is one of the most awesome pictures I've seen! The focus and tone are so striking. Your border is perfect and adds so much to the picture. I wish there was an 11 score -- because you would get it with this one!!!! Surely one of the ribbon winners if not THE ribbon winner! 10

Looks like a Canon picture to me (hope I´m not wrong :) ). Very sharp, yet silky smooth picture with good colour saturation. Nicely composed. Good work overall!

Very nice exposure - we can still see details in the girl's black outfit against the black bg. Nice dof.

Great use of natural light in this one. The strong diagonal of the strings draws the eye to the beauty of her face.
