Well seen, and very well processed.

Thanks, all.

By the way, googling tells me the instrument is called sousaphone. Live and learn.

Correct. It's a variant of a tuba. Unlike the tuba, the sousaphone wraps around the player so that it is easier to carry in a marching band.

Most of the time this kind of shots are utterly boring, but, Slobodan, you master the trick to shoot this the right way, making these shots well balanced and pleasant to look at.

This kind of photography is very difficult to do it well, and you know how to do it.

The main thing, Slobodan, is the look in the guy's eyes. He's into the music. You caught that.

That is what I was thinking, The Sousaphone is nicely captured, and guides the eye around the image. But the intensity of the face really makes the whole sing.

Yes, Russ, thanks.

As a side comment, about those eyes, from a different perspective: we've been flooded recently by posts about sharpening, mostly post-processing related. In one of those threads, I made two observations: 1. sharpness is overrated and 2. modern camera/lens combinations are already detailed/sharp enough, before post-processing. The screenshot on the left is straight-out-of-camera, with just default (capture) sharpening in LR. The screenshot on the right is after somewhat aggressive post-processing sharpening (noise reduction 20; then 75-1-55-60 sharpening). While the improvement is visible (also thanks to increased contrast and clarity), it is relevant only in comparison, both content-wise and detail-wise. I could have lived with the default version just as well.

While I agree with you in that, you should not forget that the important thing in THIS particular photograph is the CONTENT, which makes more-or-less-sharpness less significant.
And IMHO content is usually more important than sharpness.
