Interesting. All that spotlight, center stage -- and completely anonymous. Great!

Looks like something Id do, only yours is better. Very fine orchestration of tones and shadows. Thank you.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: This is a beautifully made image. The light, smoke, near silhouette, the tall mic, the amazing stance of the figure, the suggestion of a band name in the background - all make for an image that is very involving indeed. The monochrome treatment works fantastically well too.

Critical stuff: There is a minor background artefact showing through the smoke between the mic stand and the wire - given how good this image is, it might have been worth a clone-out to avoid the eye being led here.

Overall: Really great work.

Quite intriguing. He looks like a miniature because the microphone stand is so very tall compared to him. At first I thought it was just a matter of perspective, but that base is only a couple of feet from him, so I'm mystified as to why it is SO high up. Everything else is classic and gorgeous.
