This is a standout. The brass tones are glowing and vibrant.
Wonderful shapes well cropped to make it a very interesting and unique image !!!

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Marvelous again... if I had to choose between the previous or this one I really wouldn't know which one is better... they're both incredible ! Good job Chris :)

@Tamara: thank you :) I liked them both too.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I like the sort of antiqued look of this, veering more towards a warm sepia overtone rather than the bright yellowish hues of polished brass.

@Curly: thank you, this is an old trumpet, I forget how old, but i'd say around 15ish years old.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I like this point of view. Do you play?

@Ralph Jones: thank you, yes i do play, i played trumpet in my middle school's jazz band,

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Super framing . Love these golden tones and great light on it !

@MARIANA: thank you, the lighting was tricky, i bounced the flash off a wall, and used my drawing for art (i'll post it when i'm done, its due tomorrow) as a bounce card. I also had a black backdrop just outside the edge of the frame to get that black reflection on the left side.

Bill from Pacific Northwest, United States

Fabulous composition, color and detail. It's brimming over with energy because of the angle of view and the tight cropping.

@Bill: thank you, I like the glow in the brass, it adds energy to the picture.
