It might be best to full view this...

'Tis my sister's hands, as I'm not good enough to take a self-portrait. ^^;

She looked at me weirdly, but they'll never understand. :roll:

I really like this photo - piano is an often-used theme in photography (or maybe I've just seen too many similar shots lately ^^) but I think the atmosphere here is so much more intense and "in there" than in anything I've seen before. I think the reason is your focus on her left hand while the right hand is recognisable (since it kind of mirrors the left) but still obscures the shot like a beautiful veil. It adds a certain intimacy to the whole setting.
Black/White is of course always a good choice when you go for atmosphere and mood and this is a beautiful example ;)

Very nice :3 At first I thought it was black-and-white water, like how sometimes water looks really smooth and blurry in tiny streams and things, but then I realize it was a piano... interesting. :3

This is utterly amazing! I haven't seen a photo as simply beautiful or unique as this one is quite a long time.

I love that it's black and white - I think it adds a feeling of "silence" somehow. If that made any sense at all . . . :giggle:

It's just I don't want to enable any subscription features (as you can probably see on my page), because I don't want a sub in the first place, so if you really want to critique, doing it here will be fine. ^^;

I'm not looking for a critique, as such, but it's entirely up to you. :)

:lmao: To think you actually won the Deviousness award, something many people would be proud of. You're really a humble person :D
Alright, then I'll do a half-Critique there, okay?

It's a deeply emotional photograph, with a very suggestive shading. The hands were captured in the best possible position: they suggest slow motion, yet without a touch. It's as if the pianist and the piano were two different entities, separated by silence; it's a cry for life and a peaceful rest at the same time. A beautiful dualism, enhanced by the use of monochrome, which is also - in my humble opinion - a great depiction of the human heart.

There you go. Hope you like it. :D

Oh, I'm proud of it, but.. I'm pretty messed up inside and I keep thinking that I don't deserve it and such. ^^;

Aww, thank you. You are so kind. :hug:

Thank you so much! That's pretty in-depth, and I swear you've made it more profound than it really is.

Thank you. :glomp:

Yes, I know you weren't really thinking "now the shades should be like this and that to give that particular emotion and the details have to be very precise and and and..." when you took that shot... but I also believe there's more to one's photograph than you might see at first. Your subconscious, in my opinion, saw much more than your eyes did in those hands playing the piano. That's why I find the outcome so beautiful :aww:
You're very welcome :hug:
