I tried to create a traditional jazz cover. I was going for the bebop era. Hope everyone likes it as much as I do.

Hi Robert from the Critique Club

I think looking at your score and your comments that the voters did like this image
It is very interesting and I agree with the voters about the ciggarettes
I think the image would have been just as good if not better without them
I just love the saxaphone and the suit and tie is great.A nice elegant image nicely presented for a Jazz c d Black and white great
Focus detail and crop are all fine
So I can't really find any thing negative about this image just all positive. Well Done

There were a lot of excellent images in this challenge and you received a very presentable score. I hope you continue to enjoy your photography and good luck in your future challenges
If you have any questions please feel free to PM me

I like the dappled light on the suit. I don't understand why the cigs are there. Sure, they say sixty, but they look way out of place (especially because they don't have the same dappled light as mentioned above) and they don't add to the composition. BTW, I smoke so have nothing against showing cigs.

Can just see this as a cover on the shelves. Very professional indeed.

Nice sax - and good use of the B&w technique. I really thing the cigarettes detract from your theme.

Without the cigarette packet the composition is pretty strong - the V of the shirt and tie fairly centred and the diagonal of the sax more assymetrical - balanced to the right by the heavy tubey end bit. But the cigarette packet seems to really throw that composition out and doesn't really make sense to me in terms of position. Black and white image with red from text works well. 7

Excellent font choice. The photograph might benefit from some more contrast, esp in the shadows.

Great shot. I would've preferred colour on this one I think.

Nice shot. It seems a bit soft tho. Try applying a slight USM to sharpen it up a bit.
