not much to say really, Photo was taken at "the location"...after climbing some fences, and crawling in some stuff I would not like to see again (with camera gear, mic/stand, and three roses in tow) I was there. Little clean up (maid did not show for work in a while) and I was ready to take a couple snapshots and get out of there...

The lyrics for the song were the main reason for the more somber tone/mood (darkness) of the photograph. Post processing I had 2 versions, one being brighter than the other, but felt the point was more direct in the darker tone.

I really like the photo, but feel that more contrasty processing could have brought out the mood you wanted more effectively.

A little dark.. and for the first time borders actually help an image. 10.

Brilliant! When casting votes I wanted to stay away from thinking "oh, that would be a good album cover for that song/lyric," but instead look at the meaning of the song/lyric and compare the feeling of that with the mood of the photo...you nailed it.

I love the composition and story behinf this. The focus seems a bit soft though.

Best of the challenge that I've seen so far and my first 10. The imagery and title fit perfectly and does not seem forced. Where did you find such a room with this old piano in it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2011 05:10:27 PM
Oh, awesome. A bit more brightness for a bit of visual pop, but the content is incredible. This looks like a room in some very fancy home/palace. Was this shot for empty room?

WOW - that poor old piano. This is great. Looks like an album cover.
