This old piano seemed to still be playing the tunes. Enhanced slightly in Lightroom and Photoshop CS4.

    This has so much character and implied history to it. Colors, composition and layout all make it a classic. Nice eye, nice treatment, nice shot!

Congratulations on your wonderful POTD Christine. This image makes me feel both happy and little sad because I teach piano and it's sad to see a beautiful instrument in such bad shape, but also happy to think it still makes music. I guess everything has a limited life. I bet this piano has an interesting biography. Thanks for the story.

Love the angle of your capture, as well as the tonality and DOF. Lovely capture.

I was curious about the piano maker, Mehlin & Sons and Googled it. This is what came up.

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments. The day I saw this piano, it just begged to be captured by camera. I could still hear the music playing!

Thank you again.
