[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The harp is a multi-string musical instrument which has the plane of its strings positioned perpendicularly to the soundboard. Organologically, it is in the general category of chordophones (stringed instruments) and has its own sub category (the harps). All harps have a neck, resonator and strings. Some, known as frame harps, also have a pillar; those without the pillar are referred to as open harps. Depending on its size, which varies, a harp may be played while held in the lap or while it stands on a table, or on the floor. Harp strings may be made of nylon, gut, wire or silk. On smaller harps, like the folk harp, the core string material will typically be the same for all strings on a given harp. Larger instruments like the modern concert harp mix string materials to attain their extended ranges. A person who plays the harp is called a harpist or harper. Folk musicians often use the term "harper", whereas classical musicians use "harpist".

Hi Francis
A very beautiful hand Tool. Great focus, exposure and dof. A very nice and different entry.

Hi Francis,

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the harp being used by the musician. You have capture well the expression of the artist being lost in her thoughts. Have a nice day.


il me semble entendre cette harpe chanter!
un instrument qui met à l'honneur la sonorité délicate des cordes et le toucher sensuel des mains

Good clarity, nice dof, good saturation. A pity you clipped the top of the harp but doesnt detract. Nice choice for theme.

Bom dia Francis,
In addition to very well done, a sophisticated and cultured scene.
A great entry.
