[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This bandsman seemed to be disturbed during his band playing during the Good Friday procession of Zejtun, Malta. I liked the reflection on the fellow bandsman in their brass instruments and the side lighting on their jackets.

Hi Francis.

I do so love this type of 'Moments in Time' shots where the semetry has been disturbed. With htis, the man has to turn and look, love it....human nature at its best. Very well seen and taken Francis, have a good one. TFS.

Bom dia Francis,

Um excelente corte para nos proporcionar uma fotografia de qualidade incontestável e com um dos membros da banda em posição diferente dos demais, quebrando uma possível monotonia que poderia existir. Destaco também o foco, muito bem conseguido, que põe em evidência não só as bonitas cores mas também as pessoas. Quanto à luz, está muito bem calculada e a exposição com certeza é a grande responsável por isso. Por fim espero que essas minhas palavras sejam consideradas, pelos censores que voltaram a intervir (na minha maneira de pensar de forma arbitrária) como uma crítica.

Parabéns e um grande abraço,

  • Great

Hi Francis.

Wonderful use of a shallow dof with good fg sharpness on the musicians & effective tight framing. I like the reflections in the trombones... or are they trumpets? Good colour & saturation. Superb graphism & exposure. Tfs!

Ciao Francis, lovely composition with beautifulband in action, fantastic reflec tions, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Awesome candid shot of this guy! Maybe he saw a beautiful woman, that would do it. I like the tight cropping. Good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Except for some of the hats of the band-squad tend to OE, the picture worked quite fine for me, Francis!
The face of the person is cut but overall mood in the picture is well shown.
Good work!

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Excellent humour bien vu:-o)sur ces instruments rutilants.
Très bons moments pour vous à dénicher la photo d'exception.
Mes compliments pour ce partage insolite et votre présentation soignée.
Bon dimanche. Amicalement.
