What's the background??? Nothing fancy, the horn was simply sitting in it's case, with that velvety lining... Natural light, 1/5th second exposure (w/ tripod, of course)

velvety

Awesome shot Larry, for once I agree with the judges. I'm dumbfounded by the selections the judges make. With my own pictures the ones I think are some of my best images they ignore. While some of my photos that I don't think are anything special get picked by them all the time. I find this especially true with black and whites. Do you feel the same way?
