Excellent POV, I love the casual yet intelligent pose, and the piano highlights compliment rather than overwhelm the image.

Unique perspective and composition. At first I thought the upper right corner was a bit distracting, but I like the way the lower left balances it out.

Fits the challenge well. I find the upper right and lower left corners a little distracting.

Wonderful composition, I love the lines and power of the gaze. I would bring it down a stop or two.

The intricacies of a nice (dust-free) piano interior and a human face full of character seem to make for a very pleasing portrait. Ligthing this scene was a skillful job.

Superb composition ! The piano helps frame this. His pose is perfect. The lighting and clarity are right on the money. My only suggestion would be to get rid of the top right corner. It draws the eye away from the subject. However, this is VERY nicely done.
