I love the attention to details in the composition - all the titles in the sheet music match the mood and title of these piece.

Not real sure why I like this image, but something about it has captured my senses. Very well done.

The smoke almost made me downgrade, because it distracts from the beautiful line of the clarinet. But ... then I noticed the names on the music and the connection was very clear.

The smoke doesn't quite look like it is coming out of the clarinet (at least to my eyes) but this is a clever and well shot (imho) submission.

Very cool. Would love to know how this was set up.

I like this! For one thing, how the ebony in the clarinet has disappeared into the background. In my faves now :)

Very good idea. Much more interesting than any one of the 3 elements alone. Great B/W tones.

Great selection of music to complement the smoke coming from the clarinet. Bumping to an eight.
