Hi Brian this is a good picture that I like a lot and would like to do something similiar. But why the green toning or cast? Try a few other colours and see what you think. Andy Reply ↓

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll give it a go. The intent was to create an artistic piece that showcased texture, grain, and motion, differing from the time-honored black and white piano work commonly seen. I thought the cast added to the feeling I was attempting to convey.
Hi Brian I just wondered how many b&W prints you have seen with a green cast that work? Thanks for sharing. Andy
Really love this image…and your treatment, Brian!
Thanks very much, another thousand!
Love this! And I like the bronze affect. It really works.
Hi Lois, I appreciate the kind words. Thank you.
I like this a lot!
Pat, thank you very much.
Fantastic cloesup…the textures make the whole image!
I thought the textures turned out nicely. Thank you, Tammy.
wonderful. i have never seen anything quite like this before – well done 🙂
Alessandro, I appreciate the feedback — thank you!
Brian, like the shot, the motion capture in the hands was just the right touch, when I took a close look it made me dizzy. YOU NAILED IT!
Michael, thank you very much.
fantastic shot, and I love the quote.
Hi Ray, thank you very much.
Good afternoon, Brian. Long time you no hear from me. But I’ve finished my classwork and can blog guiltlessly now. Glad to see you are as prolific as ever. The hands are really creative.
Hi Dave, great to hear from you and thanks for the comment!
Really love this image – I like the toning and the texture and think it all works very well together.
Lama, thank you very much for the visit and kind words — much appreciated.
How did you manage to do these effects on his hands and on the whole picture? It’s remarkable in composition.
great shot with a good feeling for the touching hands, their movement, their expressive search for melody. Fitting treatment and wonderful — drawing like — toning. Love the framing, which really makes the pic !
btw nice quote :lol
Well composed, shot and post-processed (in Corel?). I’m enjoying your blog very much. Keep shooting.
