Nice grain on the hands and background. Thought the artifacts on the foreground keys detracted from the rest of the grain.

Piano bar, dark, late night, hours of smoke hanging heavy in the air...who's he playing for? Ella? I can hear the subtle strains of "At Last" coming through the monitor...9

Good shot, however it appears that color noise was added to a B/W photo. Perhaps you should have desaturated after adding the noise? It's quite distracting.

Wonderful title :-) The lighting on this shot is really good, and I love how the right hand is lighter than the left (almost symbolizing the key colors!) I might be interested to see this shot with a little more space at either the top or the bottom of the photo to try and get the hands in more of a 1/3 position. But great shot and the grain goes over well!

Though I like this image and the grain seems to work well, the two different hands, one old, one young, makes the image feel out of balance.
