Very nice candid image. There a bit of sharpness and focus lost in the hand but that's fine being an action shot.

This has great light, movement and soul.

I really like the way you framed this photo! maybe the trompet could use a little more space at the right, but nevertheless, I like this!

My favorite part is the area around the trombonist's head. I wish his arms weren't blurry, but I like the composition and lighting.

Brilliant, nicely cropped or deliberately angled. Graet use of background too,

Great idea! I would have voted it higher if not for the rather distracting blue design of the tainted glass. Just a matter of composition adjustment I think.

I love the intensity in her face- bumping up

The angle of the window in the background implies your subject was leaning back. I think it would have more "celebration" impact if rotated right a bit. Sort of throwing the music to the Lord. Great shot though. Wonderful skin tones and brass.

i love the creativity of this picture. great energy, like the composition, like the angle of the shot. i would love to see this shot with the model holding still to keep the arms and hand in focus against that wonderfully blurred window. the contrast of warm and cool colors works really well in this photo, too. very nicely done!

This is a lovely capture and the angle of the main subject playing the horn in relation to the slanted stain glass background also adds interest that captures the eye's attention. The thing that greatly reduces the strength of this capture is the lack of sharp focus. It would have been wonderful if the hand playing the trumpet and portions of the trumpet were not blurry.

I like how you can see the church stained glass window behind the trombone player. Nice!

good idea and nice composition, but a little blurry i'm afraid.

I love this but it's blurred. I understand that the slide of the trombone would have a motion blur to it, but the whole shot seems slightly out of focus. Bummer.
